Leonard Little Still Undecided Over Return to Rams
But Little, a 35-year-old with 12 years under his NFL belt, all with the Rams, is a free agent. And he hasn't decided just what it is he wants to do.
"We have been going back and forth,'' coach Steve Spagnuolo said Thursday afternoon. "We haven't had a chance. I want to hear that voice on there because I love Leonard and I love talking to him. Until I get to him and have a feel of what he's thinking, we're still assessing the young guys that we have out there.
"I really [want to] visit and have a conversation in the near future. Then I'll just find out where he's at and we'll kind of gauge it.''
There are days when Little feels the urge to be back on the field. But there are days when that's not true, too. So he continues to ponder his future.
"Sometimes I feel like I want to come back,'' Little told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Sometimes I feel like I don't. It's a hard decision to make when you're used to playing football. I've been playing football since I was 5 years old.''
Little started 13 games for the Rams last year and had 6.5 sacks. If he's not still starter material – and he might still be – then there might be room for him as a situational pass rusher.
But only if he shows up.
"There's some teams interested,'' Little told the paper, acknowledging that the Rams are on the list. "If I want to call them and tell them I'm ready to play, I think it'll be a good chance I could join those specific teams. But I haven't given anybody a definitive answer, so teams don't know where I'm at right now.''
