Harvey Dahl STL 8 Months
Coach Jeff Fisher said the Rams "have left the door open" for free agent RG Harvey Dahl to return.
Dahl, 33, was released in March in a cap move. He underwent ankle and hip surgeries following the season, with the hip rehab being the most extensive. It sounds like Dahl still may not be recovered. For now, the Rams are going with Rodger Saffold at right guard. Davin Joseph and Barrett Jones are the backups.

Despite releasing him on Monday, coach Jeff Fisher stated he's open to free agent RG Harvey Dahl rejoining the Rams.

"Harvey's gonna work very hard to get through his rehab," Fisher added. "And we agreed that when he was healthy, we would talk." Monday's release of Dahl saved $4 million in cap room.

St. Louis is currently dealing with arguably the worst offensive line situation in football, but Dahl is severely overpaid with $4 million in salary and bonuses going on age 33. By releasing Dahl, the Rams' salary cap room would increase to $15 million. They're on the verge of losing free agent G/T Rodger Saffold, LT Jake Long tore his ACL and MCL in Week 16, and C Scott Wells is another overpaid, injury-prone veteran in swift decline.
