Rams | Manumaleuna working on his own; may join team next week

Fri, 14 Apr 2006 21:45:33 -0700

Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams TE Brandon Manumaleuna has not been at the team's offseason conditioning program, instead he has chosen to work out on his own. Head coach Scott Linehan said Manumaleuna is expected to participate in next weekend's minicamp. "The word is, he'll be here the first part of next week," Linehan said. Linehan would like Manumaleuna training in St. Louis with the rest of the club, but since the offseason conditioning program technically is "voluntary," Linehan can't really force the issue.

Rams | Linehan would like to utilize tight end position more

Fri, 24 Feb 2006 17:17:22 -0800

St. Louis Rams head coach Scott Linehan said he would like to utilize the tight end position more and is pleased with what he has seen from TE Brandon Manumaleuna. Linehan said, "There's not a lot of big blocking prototype type guys in the NFL, that are able to play at the end of the line and block defensive ends in the running game. And be able to match up in pass protection. I think if you make that two-headed monster a little bit more balanced as far as a blocker and a guy that catches a number of balls and is effective in the passing game, then I'll feel much better about it." He also feels a pass-catching tight end would help improve the team's red zone production and on third-downs.
