For now, Rams sitting on final payoff from Griffin III deal

The final payout is coming due from the Robert Griffin III deal, and the St. Louis Rams would love a repeat of last year's draft haul.

For now, they're sitting on a valuable bargaining chip.

The Rams (7-9) have the Redskins' second overall pick, plus their own 13th selection. Last year, they parlayed the 16th and 22nd picks into a batch of budding talent, including Tavon Austin, Alec Ogletree, Zac Stacy, Michael Brockers and Janoris Jenkins.

To make the jump to contending status after consecutive seven-win seasons, St. Louis needs help in the secondary and at wide receiver. But general manager Les Snead said Thursday rather than a specific need the Rams needed to keep building depth.
