Rams franchise S Lamarcus Joyner was asked if he’s been keeping up with what has transpired in the safety free agent market this offseason, as a number of notable players have been forced to accept reduced salaries.
“It’s a small world,” Joyner said, via the Los Angeles Times. “You hear things. But I don’t worry about those kinds of things.
“I wouldn’t say that I keep an eye on it. I keep my ears open on what’s going on in the league because it’s my profession. You got to know what’s going on.
“I always worry about my God first, and Lamarcus and his family. And the rest is going to take care of itself. I don’t ever pay attention to other situations because I’m my own product.”

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll tells Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com that while players change over time, “the philosophy doesn’t” and he believes it will work for them again.
“They’re just different people,” Carroll said. “Nobody knew who Richard was or who Kam was back in the day. There are guys in that room right now that they’re going to know about in time. It’s thrilling. It’s a thrill to go through this and watch it happen, watch it emerge. There’s so much energy, so much positive juice from these guys, the effort they’re giving. Wait and see. I ain’t worried one bit. Not one bit. I see who they are and what they’re doing.”
