Linebacker Daryl Smith completed his free-agent visit to the Rams on Tuesday, but no deal appears imminent.

In fact, indications are that Smith may take several visits before reaching a decision.

Smith, who played his first nine seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, would fill an obvious need for the Rams at linebacker. The team needs bodies at the position, including a starter at strongside linebacker.

James Laurinaitis, Jo-Lonn Dunbar, Josh Hull, Sammy Brown and Jabara Williams are the only linebackers on the team’s current roster. And Brown and Williams have only eight games of regular-season NFL experience between them.
