Little's status still up in the air

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that longtime defensive end Leonard Little remains undecided about whether he will retire, or return for another season with the Rams or another team.

Little, 35, is currently an unrestricted free agent. He has played 12 seasons in the NFL, all of them with the Rams, who reportedly would like to re-sign him as a situational pass rusher and possibly at a lower salary.

Little told the Post-Dispatch on Tuesday that he is spending time with his family and has instructed his agent not to schedule team visits or "anything dealing with football."

McNabb sweepstakes: Let the games begin

Ever since coach Andy Reid let slip at the annual owners' meeting that the Eagles are now "entertaining offers" for their QBs -- a virtual about-face from their stance after exiting the playoffs -- rumors and speculation have flown left and right.

While Reid's comment seemed to apply to all three of his QBs, starter Donovan McNabb is the hot property, and possibly the guy most likely to be dealt by the Eagles since he is due to be paid a $6 million roster bonus in six weeks.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that McNabb's personal top choice would be a trade to the Vikings, who are dealing with their own QB drama in the "will he or won't he" retirement saga of Brett Favre .

McNabb would reportedly dread going to either the Bills or Raiders, according to the Buffalo News .

The San Francisco Chronicle maintains that McNabb coming to Oakland in a trade that could involve the similarly high-paid CB Nnamdi Asomugha moving to Philly might make sense on the surface, but is probably unlikely to happen .

Meanwhile, in St. Louis, a rumor spread on Thursday that the Eagles had agreed to send McNabb to the Rams in exchange for FS Oshiomogho Atogwe and the 33rd overall pick in this year's draft. That rumor seemingly died a fast death when Eagles GM Billy Devaney called it "utterly ridiculous," according to the Camden Courier-Post .

Lions scout DT McCoy on pro day

The Detroit Free Press noted that Lions general manager Martin Mayhew was on hand at Oklahoma's pro day on Tuesday with an eye on top DT prospect Gerald McCoy .

The Lions hold the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. The team with the first overall pick, the St. Louis Rams, was also represented at the Oklahoma pro day, by coach Steve Spagnuolo.

McCoy participated in some positional drills at the pro day but bypassed some of the exercises he participated in at the scouting combine.

Bucs attempting to fill Allen's void

The St. Petersburg Times reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are actively searching for help at safety, in the wake of free agent Will Allen's departure to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The story notes that the Bucs are interested in meeting with both Gibril Wilson of the Dolphins and Brodney Pool of the Browns.

Pool is currently visiting teams, including the Rams and the Jets, but has yet to latch on with a new team. The Bucs are reportedly looking to meet with him when his schedule allows.

Will Rams trade away No. 1 pick?

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the new ownership of the Rams franchise, along with the troubled state of the team itself, has a lot of wild rumors swirling about possible changes on the horizon.

One of the hottes rumors, according to the report, is that the Rams may trade their No. 1 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for QB Josh Johnson and a combination of draft picks in the first, second or third rounds.

One such scenario would only bump the Rams down to the No. 3 pick, which would be a relatively small price to pay if their most coveted draft prospect isn't expected to be drafted first or second overall.

Another rumor the story mentions is the possibility of stealing QB Michael Vick away from Philadelphia.

Rams could leave St. Louis

After inheriting control of the Rams in early 2008 from their late mother, Georgia Frontiere, Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez have concentrated on reorganizing the football operation. And they've had to deal with complex estate-tax issues in the aftermath of their mother's death.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the owners will ask Goldman Sachs to help facilitate the sale of the Rams by evaluating bids and soliciting potential buyers.

The sale price is unknown, but Forbes magazine's most recent estimate listed the Rams' value at $929 million.

There are no preconditions attached to the sale of the Rams, which means the Rams could be scooped up by out-of-town buyers.

Torry Holt wants out of St. Louis

Seven-time Pro Bowler Torry Holt, a mainstay of the Rams' Greatest Show on Turf teams, has asked for his release according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Holt is due a roster bonus of $1.25 million on March 17, so it's highly unlikely he will be a Ram beyond then. But the Rams could still try to trade him until then.

Realizing he no longer fits in the team's plans, Holt is seeking closure on his time in St. Louis, as well as an opportunity to find a job.

Rams shopping Pace and Holt

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Orlando Pace and Torry Holt are being shopped as trade bait.

Once the early buying spree calms down, the Rams' organization believes that there will be a market for Pace and Holt -- even if it's a middle- to late-round pick.
