St. Louis cut M. Sims-Walker after a less than stellar start to the season (US Presswire).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

The grand Mike Sims-Walker experiment in St. Louis ended today when the Rams traded a conditional sixth-round pick to the Broncos in exchange for Brandon Lloyd.

That’s from the St. Louis Post Dispatch, which reports that the Rams cut Sims-Walker after the Lloyd trade was completed.

Sims-Walker -- who was signed in the offseason as a free agent to a one-year deal worth $3.7 million -- was supposed to be a nice pick-up for the Rams, but he only tallied 11 catches for 139 yards this season. He also had made a habit of dropping key passes, and on Sunday vs. the Packers, St. Louis deactivated him.

For his part, Sims-Walker seemed to be handling things well, publicly at least. Shortly after the news broke, Sims-Walker tweeted, “Wanna thank the rams organization and fans for the short stay, I am a better player and Man because of yall, best of luck....”

In other Rams news, the team has announced that quarterback Sam Bradford has a high ankle sprain and that he’s day to day.

I really thought that maybe Mike Sims-Walker would have then way better than he has so far for the Rams this season but there is no doubt that Brandon Lloyd is a much better WR then Sims-Walker is so by letting Sims-Walker go and getting Lloyd to take his place is not a bad pick up at all because it really seems that Sims-Walker is not a good WR at all.

He forgot to add "I'm also a richer man (in more ways than one) for being part of the Rams organization. I will truly cherish the time I spent riding the bench. It's been fun. Peace out....you all."

I have never hard of Sims-Walker before until today. If S-W wants to play for a winning team he should consider signing with a team that HAS a winning record.

Bears need to give him a try and then send Roy Williams packing.  And the dropping passes isn't an issue since Hester can't catch either.
