Re: Isaac Bruce to stay with Rams.

Bruce staying with the STL is an answer to my prayer:

"Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil..."

Dude is great. HOF career. But he is ancient. He is going down hill.

Bruce has agreed to a new, three-year deal worth $15 million and the contract is expected to be officially executed as early as Friday.

The contract will pay Bruce $6 million in 2006. Under his previous contract, he would have earned $8.1 million total from a roster bonus ($1.5 million), base salary ($6.5 million) and workout bonus ($100,000).

Although he received immediate interest from several teams after his release on Sunday night, and could have signed elsewhere because he did not have to wait until the start of the free agency period, Bruce's aim was to return to the Rams, if possible, to complete his career. One of the team's most interested in Bruce was the Detroit Lions, where former Rams head coach Mike Martz is the new offensive coordinator.

But Rams officials maintained a dialogue with Bruce and agent Jimmy Sexton, and the wide receiver met with team officials, including first-year coach Scott Linehan, on Thursday to discuss his future. Linehan reiterated to Bruce what he had said publicly, that he projected him as still fitting into the team's plans, and wanted him to return if salary terms could be agreed upon.

Negotiations with the Rams were aimed at meeting both sides' priorities. Bruce never visited other teams and there were no substantive contract talks with other franchises. Bruce, 33, represents the final link to the Rams' days in Los Angeles, having been the club's second-round draft choice in 1994. He is one of the most popular players in the St. Louis community and highly regarded by club officials and teammates.

The 12-year veteran has appeared in 167 games and started in 154 of them. He has 813 receptions for 12,278 yards and 77 touchdowns. Six times, Bruce has posted 75 or more catches in a season and he has seven seasons of 1,000 yards or more. His 73-yard touchdown reception provided St. Louis the winning score in its Super Bowl XXXIV victory over the Tennessee Titans.



Limited to 11 appearances in 2005 because of injuries, Bruce had 36 catches and 525 yards, his lowest totals since 1998, when a severe hamstring injury forced him to miss 11 contests. But the Rams and other teams feel Bruce has not slipped much physically and still has some productive years remaining. Len Pasquarelli is a senior NFL writer for ESPN.com.
i was really wrong on that one.. i thought the skins were gonna sign him.

just the usual dis-information it seems..

Re: Isaac Bruce to stay with Rams.

I agree with most of us that this isnt that big of a loss. He is getting long in the tooth, but it still would have been nice to have seen him end out his career like Henry Ellard did.

Re: Isaac Bruce to stay with Rams.

the skins thought they were going to sign him too. larry micheals (on his new web radio show) talked about a big announcement two days ago. since ike is the ONLY guy we've been linked in interest for, he's the only guy they could have been talking about (since you can't sign RFA/UFAs until FA starts).

at that price i guess its better STL got him back, but he definately could have helped a lot of other teams.

Just be strong man. When a door closes it means a window is opening, or something like that. Remember, whether you think you can or you can't...you're right!
