- According to Thomas, the Rams are still “in the mix” for Barksdale.
Barksdale is, arguably, the best available offensive tackle remaining in the free agent market. However, it appears as though teams aren’t as interested in him as many thought in the weeks leading up to the start of free agency.
The Rams are reportedly to be interested in re-signing Barksdale, but it looks like they’re sticking to a specific dollar amount.
Barksdale, 27, Barksdale appeared in all 16 games for the Rams in 2014 and played a total of 1031 snaps. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 48 offensive tackle out of 84 qualifying players.
