Despite the addition of two high-priced free agents (Jake Long, Jared Cook), and a draft that has Rams fans buzzing, Las Vegas doesn’t think much of the Rams’ offseason.
The post-draft odds of winning the Super Bowl at the end of next season are 60 to 1 for the Rams, according to R.J. Bell of Only eight teams in the NFL have longer odds than the Rams, with Jacksonville and Oakland bringing up the rear — both at 200 to 1.

San Francisco is the Super Bowl favorite at 6 to 1, with Seattle fourth at 9 to 1. Yes, the NFC West will be tough.

Vegas is more optimistic when it comes to Rams rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin and the impact he will have as a rookie. According to, the over-under on Austin’s receiving yards in 2013 is 800 — a pretty big number for a rookie. The over-under on Austin’s receiving touchdowns is 4½.

Quarterback Tim Jenkins of Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo., has been signed on a tryout basis for next week’s rookie minicamp at Rams Park.
Jenkins appeared in only six games last season because of injuries, completing 161 of 301 passes for 1,817 yards with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. Over his four-year college career, Jenkins finished third in Fort Lewis history in passing yards (8,857), fourth in TD passes (47) and second in completion percentage (58.3).

Fort Lewis is an NCAA Division II school with an enrollment of 3,856. The Skyhawks haven’t had much luck on the gridiron lately, going 0-10 in 2012 and 8-34 over Jenkins’ career. Jenkins was invited to the Casino del Sol all-star game in Tucson, Ariz., after this season. He threw for a career-high 501 yards in a loss to Colorado State-Pueblo last season.
