Rams OLB David Vobora was a happy man after recently being awarded $5.4 million in a lawsuit against Anti-Steroid Program LLC (SWATS), the supplement company that produced the product that resulted in a four-game suspension in 2009 after he tested positive in a drug test. But we hear the odds the former "Mr. Irrelevant" in the '08 draft will keep the good times rolling as the Rams' starting weak-side linebacker next season — Vobora had a combined 15 starts at either the WLB or SLB spots in '09 and '10 — are not real good. Team insiders believe Vobora continues to have real value as a key special-teams player and spot starter. But the consensus seems to be that either Chris Chamberlain, who started six of the last eight games on the weak side last season, or, even more likely, a free-agent addition will get the nod at a position where four different players earned starting roles in 2010.
