    ESPN.com's John Clayton reports the St. Louis Rams have signed free agent WR Brad Pyatt (Colts) to a one-year, $432,500 contract. He will receive a $7,500 signing bonus and a minimum base salary of $425,000. Pyatt had a two-year offer from the Pittsburgh Steelers, but decided to take the one-year offer from the Rams.

    Yep.

    In 2003-2004, he averaged 26.7 yards per return. He missed last season with a shoulder injury.

    Re: Rams | Pyatt signed

    2003
    19 returns
    544 yards
    28.6 yards per return

    2004
    10 returns
    230 yards
    23.0 yard per return

    I suspect he was signed to compete for the kick returner job. Don't be surprised if competition is brought in through the draft, though.

    Re: Rams | Pyatt signed

    If I was Pyatt I would sign with Pittsburgh with Randle El gone, but I'm glad we have him.

    Perhaps if Looker does not pan out (he should) or McDonald gets a good offer next season, Pyatt could be like a 4th or 5th WR next season IF he pans out as a kickoff returner. Those avg. numbers are good, perhaps he could bust out for 1 TD too.

    He'll probably be on our "hands" team for onside kicks and the fact he's a solid tackler helps him a lot if someone else wins the KR job.
