The Rams are continuing to solidify their roster, ahead of their move to Los Angeles, with another couple of re-signings. Wide receiver Brian Quick and center Tim Barnes have both put pen to paper on extensions with the franchise. Quick has agreed a one-year deal worth “up to” $3.75 million, while Barnes will remain with the Rams for the next two years. Quick was largely anonymous during the 2015 season, catching just 10 passes on three starts, which makes his re-signing a little unexpected. But the Rams front office clearly believe he deserves more of a chance to prove that he’s fully recovered from a severe shoulder injury, suffered two seasons ago. The 26-year-old wide receiver, who stands at 6-4 and weighs 208 lbs, is set to earn at least $1.5 million in 2016, although that could increase by more than $2 million. Quick was the Rams’ second round pick (33rd overall) in the 2012 NFL draft. Meanwhile, Barnes started all 16 games for the Rams in 2015, prompting GM Les Snead to proclaim Barnes as a player he wanted to retain, going into their move to the West Coast. However, Barnes ranked 32nd out of 40 starting centers in the NFL last season, suggesting that the Rams could still be in the market for a more permanent replacement for 2014 starter Scott Wells. Barnes came into the league with the Baltimore Ravens, as an undrafted free agent in 2011, but signed for the Rams shortly afterwards and has played for the former St Louis franchise ever since.
