PRO FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : RAMS : Pankey May Go to Indianapolis
The Rams are not negotiating further with their last remaining holdout, left tackle Irv Pankey, and are set to play the season without him. The team is, however, listening to bids from the Indianapolis Colts, the only team seriously interested in Pankey.
Last week, the Rams lowered their offer to Pankey to $475,000 for this season and $525,000 for 1992, down from a two-year, $1.1-million package that was taken off the table. The club is reportedly set to wait until the early-October trading deadline to deal him.
The Colts have talked about sending a 1992 third-round choice to the Rams for Pankey, but the Rams are asking for a second-round pick.
The Rams decided not to sign wide receiver Mike Alexander, who was cut by the Raiders Monday and was at Rams Park for a workout Tuesday.
The Rams signed four players to their practice squad--tight end Corwin Anthony of UCLA, linebacker Terry Crews of Western Michigan, tackle Neal Fort of Brigham Young and wide receiver Jimmy Raye of San Diego State.
As of Wednesday, there were 21,600 tickets available for Sunday’s 1 p.m. game against the Phoenix Cardinals at Anaheim Stadium. The remaining tickets must be sold by 1 p.m. today or the game will be blacked out on local television.
