    Rams drop two, sign four players

    BY JIM THOMAS
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    Tuesday, Nov. 14 2006

    In one of their busiest regular-season days since the move to St. Louis, the
    Rams made several roster moves Tuesday.
    Left tackle Orlando Pace (torn triceps) and cornerback Travis Fisher (fractured
    forearm) were placed on the season-ending injured reserve list. Also, kickoff
    returner J.R. Reed and defensive end Tony Bryant were released.

    Signed to the roster Tuesday were: kickoff returner Willie Ponder; offensive
    lineman Adam Haayer; cornerback Chidi Iwuoma; and defensive end Eric Moore.
    Moore was signed through 2007; the others were signed through this season only.
    Ponder, most recently with Seattle, led the NFL in kickoff returns with a
    26.9-yard average for the New York Giants in 2004.

    Moore recently was released by the New Orleans Saints.
    Iwuoma, a member of the Super Bowl XL champion Pittsburgh Steelers, worked out
    for the Rams on Nov. 3.

    Haayer was in training camp with the Rams this summer.
    Ponder will take over the team’s kickoff return chores immediately. The Rams
    gave Reed what turned out to be one-last chance last Sunday in Seattle, and he
    averaged only 21 yards on three returns.
    Moore was unavailable when Bryant was signed Oct. 18, and the Rams think he has
    more potential as a pass rusher.

    With Fisher expected to miss at least the next four weeks, and with just seven
    games to go, the Rams decided to place him on IR and bring in Iwuoma, who was
    co-captain of Pittsburgh’s special teams unit last season, and had spent part
    of this season with New England

    We got a kickoff returner,thats good.I'm sad to see Reid and Bryant go but in Reids case,if you can't produce,you shouldn't get paid.

    GC got his wish...Ponder is now a Ram!

    RF16 and others got their wish...Fisher's slow recovery will take too long to bring him back this year.

    Will this be the end of Travis Fisher as a Ram? Dang it, I hope so!

    Will our kickoff returns improve instantly because of Ponder? Dang it, I hope so!

    Go Rams!!! :l

    Yeah I think Fisher is done as a Ram.I've looked up this Eric Moore guy, and he looks like a nice addition.His senior year in college he was a top All American Candidate,but that's just college.I like the additions.

    Does anybody know anything about our new aquisitions? We know Ponder from Seattle. How about the other three new players? Nick, any thoughts on these guys?

    Iwuoma seems to be able to help out on special teams too, which will probably instantly elevate him above JB on the depth chart

    I want to see Bartell get a shot now that Fisher is out. Hill will obviously start, but Bartell should come in on nickel and dime formations

    With our luck he's probably the son of Michael Moore. :\

    Haayer has played in the NFL so he could be some solid depth.

    Moore could be a great pass rusher, but he won't help us against the run which is what we need.
