    Ex-Falcon Foster Likely Headed To Rams

    Ex-Falcon Foster likely headed to Rams
    By D. ORLANDO LEDBETTER

    Thursday, June 18, 2009

    Offensive tackle Renardo Foster, who was released by the Falcons on Tuesday, appears headed to the St. Louis Rams.

    St. Louis has placed a waiver claim for Foster, according to his agent Brian Ayrault.

    Denver, Buffalo and Carolina were also reportedly interested in Foster.

    The waiver period ends on Friday for Foster. Waiver claims are awarded to a team with the worst record.

    The only team who could beat a claim from the Rams, who were 2-14 last season, would be the Detroit Lions, who were 0-16.

    If the Lions don’t make a claim, the Rams will assume the last year of the two-year contract Foster signed in 2007.

    Foster, 6-foot-7, 340-pounds, made the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2007. He started two games and played in seven under former coach Bobby Petrino before suffering a knee injury on Oct. 21, 2007 against New Orleans.

    Great (potential) signing. Excellent depth.

    Hey, anything that could maybe upgrade the offensive line is great news to me. Even if it's depth. And it's not like the Falcons were a bad running team last year either!

    I wish when these types of things come out that we would be clued into why the man was released.

    Ummm knee injury might have something to do with it?

    I'm sure the knee had something to do with it, but another factor looks like the Falcons signing Jeremy Newberry.

    Falcons eliminate two from roster

    The Falcons released offensive tackle Renardo Foster and punter Robbie Dehaze on Tuesday, the team confirmed.

    Foster, who spent last season on injured reserve, was released a day after the team signed offensive lineman Jeremy Newberry.
    Foster was signed while Devaney was in Atlanta and I'm sure he 's familiar with him and had input in the decision to make the waiver claim. We'll see how it works out.

    Foster, 6-foot-7, 340-pounds
    Is it just me or have our camp body linemen been of.....shall we say, more regal proportion......than in other years?

    Feinga, 340
    Burton, 330
    Allen, 330
    Oswald, 330
    Foster, 340

    Don't want to even think about the food bill for this camp?

    I hope the facility renovation included cast iron toilet seats.

    Well, this move couldn't hurt. Here's hoping something positive ends up coming out of this.

    Looks like Shurmur is Andy Reid Jr. he likes his lineman 330 pounds. 4 of the their 5 starting lineman are clocking in over 340 pounds with only Tod Hermans around with 320 and 2 key reserves over 350 pounds. Thats beyond huge, I would love to see something like that with the Rams

    Good point Azul, but caste iron toilet seats is only a start. We will need dramatically enhanced bowl and flushing capacity as well. How would you like to be in charge of "plunging" operations at the rams training facility?

    Ramming speed to all
