The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Rams have "at least some interest" in free agent LBs Philip Wheeler and Dannell Ellerbe.
Wheeler and Ellerbe would be options on the strong side in St. Louis, opposite Jo-Lonn Dunbar and next to James Laurinaitis. The position is one of just two to three weak spots on the Rams' defense after dumpster-diving for Rocky McIntosh last offseason. Ellerbe is seeking $6 million annually. Wheeler should be cheaper.
