The Rams are not sure of much these days, but there are a couple of things they can count avoiding interviewers. on: Rookie defensive tackle Sean Gilbert will be drawing a lot of attention on the field, and he will be trying to avoid even more between Sundays. Gilbert, the No. 3 overall draft pick, apparently isn't shy, and he certainly has no trouble getting his point across, but he appears to have no desire to see his name anywhere but on the list of NFL sack leaders.

The Rams will not designate a franchise player in the NFL's first full-fledged attempt at unrestricted free agency, team and NFL sources said.

Everett is signed through 1995 and Gilbert through 1996.
