I'm sure he can command more than we can afford. The Steelers could only afford to pay him backup money. You never know if the guy is looking for a ring though.

Looks like he was making 3.2M this year, Some injury history in 2006 and 2007 but clean last year.

From what I can tell he was a weak side 4-3 backer.

Some Rams fans don't seem upset.

tough guy.. led his team in tackles last year...

and had a broken hand..

Rams WLB Pisa Tinoisamoa was limited in practice Wednesday and wore a small cast to protect the broken bone in his left hand.

Coach Scott Linehan said that he "has a better chance" to play Sunday than he did in Week 8, and Tinoisamoa added that his swelling has greatly decreased.

Tinoisamoa is coming off arguably his most productive season as a pro, starting all 16 games and making over 100 tackles and registering a career-high 3.0 quarterback sacks.

One possible landing spot for Tinoisamoa (6-1, 240) is the New England Patriots, who may look at him as a potential inside linebacker.

why does New England never run out of money??????

I think it's highly doubtful he'd come in and start anyway. This would more than likely be a depth signing only if it did happen, IMO.

I was thinking that he may land with the Broncos.

Are the Broncos even fielding a defense these days? Or did they just give up on the idear altogether?

It's doubtful. With the cap room we have left, we won't be able to pay him what he's looking for, unless he's hunting for a SB ring.
