    Coats Blog--Rookies #'s

    By Bill Coats

    Defensive end Chris Long, the Rams’ first-round draft choice, will wear uniform number 98. Here are the other numbers that have been assigned to the new rookies (for now, anyway; some could change once the final roster is set):

    Donnie Avery, 17

    Yvenson Bernard, 33

    Vernon Bryant, 71

    Kennen Burton, 14

    Matt Caddell, 6

    Chris Chamberlain, 57

    John Greco, 79

    Vince Hall, 56

    Rodney Hardeway, 69

    Josh Hyman, 11

    Doug Jones, 47

    Justin King, 32

    Marc Magro, 55

    Brandon McAnderson, 44

    Justin McKinney, 43

    Roy Schuening, 67

    Stephen Sene, 72

    Josh Thompson, 64

    David Vobora, 58

    Russ Weil, 38

    ***



    Notes & quotes:



    >>Dominique Byrd’s trial in St. Louis Circuit Court has been continued yet again. Byrd, a tight end drafted by the Rams in the third round in 2006, is facing felony charges of assault and armed criminal action stemming from a nightclub scuffle downtown in December 2006. In March 2007, he was charged with DUI in California. In October, he pled no contest and received three years’ probation. On Monday, the Rams released Byrd.



    >>Dedrick Harrington, the former Mizzou linebacker signed recently as a free agent, is being switched to tight end.



    >>Third-round draftee John Greco, a tackle from Toledo, swears that his arms actually measure 33 inches, and not 29 inches, the number that had been circulating. “I don’t know where they got that,” he said.



    >>Fourth-round pick Justin King, a cornerback from Penn State, is a movie buff. ““I love going to the movies. It’s a big thing for me,” he said. His favorite? “Gladiator.”



    >>Chris Long’s brother, Kyle, is a highly rated pitcher at Florida State. Chris would like to see him land in St. Louis, too. “I called him on my way back from the draft and I said ‘Play for the Cardinals, man,’” Chris said. “We’re in an awesome sports city, and I know baseball is big here. I mean, who knows? Wouldn’t that be cool?”



    All for now. . .

    Looks like Linehan got his baffling tight end move in after all. But hey, linebacker and tight end are practically the same, right?

    I was glad to see someone else added to the tight end spot.
    "you can never have enough tight ends" :=)

    I must admit I cringed when I read the part about Harrington, but I'll believe it's a serious move when he makes the roster as a TE. I'm not holding my breath.
