One Minute Poll: Which Wide Receiver Should St. Louis Rams Cut?

Danario Alexander is a fan favorite among Rams fans,
 mainly because of his ties to Mizzou.  But will Alexander be

wide outs?  Vote now on who you think the Rams should

After the St. Louis Rams used their third round pick in the NFL Draft on wide receiver Austin Pettis out of Boise State and their fourth round pick on Greg Salas out of Hawaii, they suddenly now have a surplus of wide receivers.

And unfortunately for some of those wide receivers, there likely is not going to be room for everyone.  The Rams will need to cut some wide receivers in order to make roster room for their new draft picks.

Danny Amendola led the Rams in 2010 with 85 receptions and 689 receiving yards, so he figures to be safe.  And so does Mark Clayton, if the Rams chose to resign the veteran wide receiver who only appeared in five games for the Rams in 2010 before missing the rest of the season with a severe injury.

That leaves two or three remaining roster spots when you couple Amendola and Clayton with the new draft picks Pettis and Salas. 

So who goes?  Who do the Rams cut? 

Danario Alexander and Donnie Avery figure to be the favorites to remain with the organization, but Brandon Gibson and Laurent Robinson have also made nice contributions for the Rams over the last two seasons.  And don't forget about Mardy Gilyard, who the Rams drafted with a fourth round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

So who do the Rams cut?  Vote NOW!
