    Rams Report: Roach cut, Johnson signed in safety switch ..

    BY JIM THOMAS | Posted: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 2:11 pm

    Safety David Roach, who played in 14 games last season for St. Louis, got in only half a day's work Tuesday at Rams Park. Roach, 25, was cut after the morning practice. (The Rams have an evening practice later today.)

    Brett Johnson, a safety who played his college ball at California, will replace Roach on the 80-man camp roster. Johnson, 6-1, 194, had 107 career tackles and three interceptions at Cal, starting 22 games overall.

    Johnson was signed by Buffalo this spring as an undrafted rookie, but was released by the Bills, then subsequently signed by Philadelphia. The Eagles released Johnson in late July.

    Roach had nine tackles from scrimmage and eight special teams stops for the Rams last season. He would make the occasional hard hit, but was also prone to penalties and mistakes.

    David Roach met the Terminix man and the Terminx man won. (Sung to the tune of "I fought the Law and Law won.")

    Roach wasn't that bad of a player, but I'd rather have a healthy body on the field. Does anyone know if this guy is any good?

    Seeing as how he's been cut twice before playing his first NFL game, it doesn't look good.

    Anyone remember that safety that played for Nebraska? I can't remember his name, but the last Huskers game I watched, I wanted to see what Suh looked like. Suh didn't really do much, but that safety really caught my eye. If anyone remembers his name, call St. Louis and tell Spags to call the kid!

    lol. I was thinking the same thing, but I was hoping one of his die hard fans would follow him along and pump him up a little.

    Just out of curiosity does anyone see the Terminix ad in the banner when viewing this site? I'm being serious.

    I think we would be better off suiting up nolan cromwell than having either of these guys on the field. Our lack of depth is an ongoing source of irritation for rams nation.

    Amendola was cut by a few teams before he broke the rams return record. So I wouldn't assume he is a bad player because he has been cut.

    Who are these guys? The Rams picking up everybody elses trash. No wonder we suck and no real player will come to St. Louis. Funny how we courted Brian Westbrook from the time he was released by the Eagles, and he signs with the fortuniners, who weren't even interested in him until last week when Glen Coffee decided to retire. This is by far the worst stretch in Rams history. Yes, worse than the 90's.

    He was a pretty good tackler & wicked fast. He could contribute on STs.

    Well who else are we supposed to sign? At this time of the year, anyone who is available has either been cut by someone else or went undrafted and was passed over multiple times by every team. Or we could trade for someone, but the only way a team would trade a player is if they didnt want him anymore, he was a headache, or the compensation was too much.

    So either way, we are going to be getting some form of "trash"

    touche.......that's a good point. Although to be fair, it took Danny Boy 18 months to get cut twice, where Johnson managed it in 4 months.

    But, I concede, we can't necessarily rule the guy out.
