POTTS IS A RAM

The day the NFL lockout ended, Potts has agreed in principle to a free agent deal with the St. Louis Rams.
Originally teams weren't going to be allowed to talk to undrafted rookie free agents until this morning, but there was a rule change yesterday at the last minute which allowed deals to begin going down at 6 PM last night.
Red Raider Sports tweeted a little after 10 PM that Potts was going to the Rams...and that former Tech and Abilene High WR Lyle Leong was headed to Dallas.
Potts will be competing against last year's #1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford who had one of the best rookie-QB seasons in NFL history. Bradford threw 18 TDs and piled up more than 3,500 yards en route to being the first #1 pick to be named NFL rookie of the year since George Rogers did it in 1981. Rogers also won the Heisman in 1980. Bradford won it in 2008.
Other QBs currently on the Rams' roster are Oregon's AJ Feely and Duke's Thad Lewis. But all that could change here pretty quick.
Will Potts make the team? Who knows. Will he end up leaving St. Louis and getting picked up by someone else? Possibly. Actually, the possibilities are endless right now especially considering the current state of the NFL.
I'm planning on having a conversation with Taylor later this week to get some more details on his adventure. It's been a memorable month for Potts...he got married on the 9th.
