So what ever became of those two players the Rams received in the trade for Eric Dickerson last Halloween?
Well, Greg Bell, the tailback from Buffalo, was lost to the team three weeks ago with a cracked scapula bone in his left shoulder and won't be back this season.
And as it turns out, neither will fullback Owen Gill, who was released Wednesday.
Now, as far as squaring the Dickerson deal is concerned, it's up to all those draft choices.
Coach John Robinson said Gill may be invited back next season.
"Right now in his career, I think he's somewhere between a running back and a fullback and he's got to have a training camp to define which one he is," Robinson said. "We told him we're interested in talking to him when the season's over."
Gill, a third-year player from Iowa, came to the Rams from the Indianapolis Colts as part of the three-team trade involving Dickerson. He was a second-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 1985.
