    Rams sign Dockery and Johnson

    Rams signed TE Darcy Johnson, formerly of the Giants.
    Johnson, 27, has just nine career catches in four seasons. The Rams are scary-thin at tight end, however, so he has a decent shot to make the team.

    Rams signed CB Kevin Dockery, formerly of the Giants.
    Dockery, 26, is undersized at 5'8/188 and coming off an awful season. When on his game, he is a feisty nickel back and knows the Rams' scheme, having played for Steve Spagnuolo in New York. He'll be a fair bet to make the club.

    Good depth I suppose. Haven't really ever heard anything about Darcy Johnson.

    Re: Rams sign Dockery and Johnson

    Dockery i expect to be on the 53 man roster..and pleased with the signing.. only 26 and probably the best Nickle back we got now.

    Johnson..compete for a spot..but probably 3rd or 4th option at best once we`ve drafted a TE...which i`m sure we will.

    or alternatively..
    More Super bowl winning back ups to be back ups for last seasons worst team...who happens to be coached by the coach who led them to the best years of their careers.

    Would rather have Dockery playing than some of the DB's we have now....

    As for Johnson, he's strictly depth. I don't see him on the roster next year.
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    I swear I've seen Dockett listed at 5'10 other places. Either way, he'll make a fine nickle back or at least fight it out with King I suppose.

    Dockett is about 6'3 and a DT...

    first named that popped in my head reading that title was Darnell Dockett. IN which spittle flew from my mouth and I hastily clicked the thread title only to be disappointed.

    Don't know much about Johnson but Im sure the Rams did their homework on him and I know they know much more about him then I do. Dockery looks to be a good signing.

    I don't care what team a guy comes from as long as he can fill the role needed and play ball *cough* Peoria...

    I actually like what we have done with this FA structure. The younger starters that we want haven't been available, so we have filled up most of our depth issues with capable vets. If you look at it where else could we use some depth RB and LB come to mind for me. We could still possibly address that with guys like Na'il Diggs and Willie Parker. I think we have really opened up what we could do in the draft allowing us to draft young starters.

    Gosh, I sure hope that Dockery makes the team. Can't wait to say Kevin "Hickory, Dickory Dockery. The cat ran up the"....well, I can't remember the rest of it right now.

    Anyway, once again, good signing, great depth.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Re: Rams sign Dockery and Johnson

    Well, these two player additions seem to be alright.

    I'm usually wary of small CBs but I suppose that the mere fact they've made it to the NFL (this would be his 5th year) leaves room for hope. Maybe if KD starts eating a junkier diet and begins sleeping at night hanging from his feet, he'll grow into a 6 footer, 200 DB by the 1st regular season game. Seriously though, this may be an upgrade from Tye Hill.


    KEVIN DOCKERY, CB. TRANSACTIONS:

    -- Originally signed by the Giants as a rookie free agent on May 16, 2006.

    GIANTS NOTES:

    -- Since earning a roster spot as a rookie free agent, Dockery has become an important contributor as the nickel corner, an occasional starter and on special teams.

    -- Has scored 2 career touchdowns, one on a 96-yard interception return and the other on a 71-yard blocked field goal return.

    CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:

    -- Has played in 40 regular season games with 5 starts and 4 postseason games... Career totals include 109 tackles (77 solo), 3 interceptions - including 1 he returned 96 yards for a touchdown - 21 passes defensed and 17 special teams tackles... Dockery also has 11 tackles (7 solo), 2 passes defensed and 3 special teams tackles in the postseason.

    -- In 2008, played in 13 games with 1 starts and played in the NFC Divisional Playoff game vs. Philadelphia... Missed games vs. Dallas, at Philadelphia and vs. Baltimore due to a to transverse process fracture... Finished with 34 tackles (23 solo), 1 interception, 7 passes defensed... Had a season-high 7 tackles (6 solo), 2 passes defensed and 1 QB hurry in action as the nickel corner vs. Cincinnati (9/21)... Got his only interception of the season vs. Seattle (10/5) when he picked off a Matt Hasselbeck pass for Bobby Engram in the 3rd quarter and returned it 44 yards... Scored his 2nd career touchdown on a 71-yard blocked field goal return vs. Philadelphia (12/7).

    -- Started at left cornerback in the season finale at Minnesota (12/28) and finished with 6 tackles (5 solo)... Intercepted a Donovan McNabb pass for DeSean Jackson in the 2nd quarter in the NFC Divisional Playoff Game vs. Philadelphia (1/11)... Also had 5 tackles.

    -- In 2007, played in 13 games with 4 starts and played in 2 postseason games... Missed game vs. Green Bay (9/16) with an ankle injury and was slowed late in the season with a hip injury... Started at left cornerback vs. the Jets (10/7) and at right cornerback at Chicago (12/2), at Philadelphia (12/9) and vs. Washington (12/16)... Finished the regular season with 39 tackles (27 solo), 8 passes defensed and 1 forced fumble... Had 6 tackles and 1 pass defensed in the post season.

    -- Made his first career start vs. the Jets and finished with 3 tackles (1 solo) and 1 pass defensed... Had 3 solo tackles in nickel and dime packages in Super Bowl XLII.

    -- As a rookie in 2006, played in 14 games in the nickel and dime packages... Was one of 7 players to tie for the team lead with 2 interceptions... Finished with 36 tackles (27 solo), 2 interceptions, 6 passes defensed and 4 special teams tackles.

    -- At Dallas (10/23), picked off a Tony Romo pass for his 1st career interception, which he returned 96 yards for a touchdown in the 4th quarter... Dockery's return tied for the 4th-longest in Giants history and was the team's longest since Lawrence Taylor scored on a 97-yard return at Detroit on Nov. 25, 1982.

    -- Recorded 8 tackles (4 solo), 4 passes defensed and 1 interception in action in nickel and dime packages at Carolina (12/10)... Intercepted his 2nd pass of the season when he picked off a Chris Weinke throw in the 4th quarter.

    Re: Rams sign Dockery and Johnson

    anyone who can return an INT for a 96 yard TD against the Cowboys is welcome at my club..

    as nickle backs go..he`s not too much undersize..we`ve certainly missed "little" Corey Ivy..i hope Dockery can fill that hole the way i think he can.

    Amen Ramblin'. Ivy fits in well with the Ravens' scheme so let's hope Dockery will have the same sort of effect being back with Spags.
