    Rams add cornerback Manning Jr., safety Condren
    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    08/31/2008

    The Rams didnít stop their roster-shaping following Saturdayís final cuts. The team has agreed to terms with cornerback Ricky Manning Jr., and has claimed safety Brannon Condren off waivers from Indianapolis.
    To make room for Condren on the 53-man roster, the club released tight end Richard Owens. They donít have to make a roster move on Manning until he signs his Rams contract, and that isnít expected to happen until Monday.

    Manning Jr., 27, is a veteran of five NFL seasons. He entered the league as a third-round draft pick by Carolina out of UCLA in 2003. Known for his ballhawking skills, Manning has 14 interceptions in 79 regular-season games, including 37 starts.

    He made a name for himself in the playoffs as a rookie, recording an interception in Carolinaís double-overtime victory over the Rams in the divisional round, and then recording three interceptions against Philadelphia in the NFC championship game.

    Demoted behind distant cousin Danieal Manning as the Bearsí nickel back, Manning Jr. asked to be traded or released. He got his wish Tuesday, and agreed to terms with St. Louis on Sunday. Contract terms werenít immediately available.

    Condren was a fourth-round draft pick of the Colts in 2007 out of Troy. He appeared in eight games as a rookie last season, recording four tackles from scrimmage, one pass breakup, and four special teams stops.

    Of the 13 players released by the Rams on Saturday -- and quarterback Bruce Gradkowski was released and not traded -- tackle Mark LeVoir was claimed on waivers (by New England).

    Will it be Vobora? The release of a high character guy for a character?

    Re: Owens was released to make way for Condren .. Who goes when Manning signs?

    Maybe we could release RB Travis Minor and Put Leonard at 3rd string RB and 2nd string FB. Have Krieder help with the run blocking and when we want to pass put in Leonard.

    It could be Vobora, but we lack LB depth also.

    It will be very tough to choose...

    If we sign two DB's and release one running back, I doubt we would release another running back. Instead I would assume the next cut will consist of a DB, most likely one that is elegable for the practice squad like Eric Bassey if he is still elegible. If not then it will be one of uor last three LB's; Tim, Chris or David.
