Rams looking at OLB-by-committee approach

The wheels just keep turning for the Rams at outside linebacker, where the three-man rotation of veteran free-agent additions Jo-Lonn Dunbar, Mario Haggan and Rocky McIntosh, who was added to the mix in mid-June, are all expected to see plenty of action. The best guess among close team observers is that Dunbar will continue to spend most of his time on the weak side, the DL-sized Haggan will work extensively on the strong side in run situations and McIntosh, who made at least 85 tackles in each of his four seasons as a fulltime starter with the Redskins, could frequently shift around to both spots. “He has some experience in this scheme and the terminology, so he can pick it up fast,” Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said of McIntosh, a second-round pick of the Redskins in 2006 (35th overall). “He’s just one of those guys we are going to put in the mix; he’ll compete and see what happens.”
