    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).
    For those who don't The Rams signed Ricky Manning Jr. today. I provided the link for you all to check.

    I hope these guys show me something good. I don't care what their past issues have been. Just don't bring it to St Louis.

    I don't think the rams would have signed them without really investigating them, and their relationships with past coaches. I think Ricky Manning shores up our Secondary somewhat. It gives us some depth, the main place we needed it.

    Great great move, the best player on the market at our thinest position. Anyone know who was released to make room for him?

    Re: Rams Sign Ricky Manning Jr.

    I'm happy that A, we signed an experienced corner who used to be pretty good(I think he started in Carolina's super bowl), and B, that he's from UCLA. I'm wondering if there's any chance of us going after some of the linebackers that are being tossed onto the scrap bin. Has Victor Hobson been picked up yet?

    Oh no! Dont tell me owens is gone. Is he not the one who replaced that worthless Madison hedgecock. The Hedgecock that now has a super bowl ring and a new contract with the giants. One of linehams brilliant moves among many last year.

    Re: Rams Sign Ricky Manning Jr.

    Does anyone know how much we're going to owe Manning Jr. if he makes the roster? I know the Bears gave him a fat enough contract that the Panthers didn't want to match it...especially after he got in trouble a couple of times. Are we on the hook for that or part of it?

    Maybe this thread should be merged with the other two or three threads on the same exact topic/article?

    I don't think so because he was released.

    Ricky Manning Jr is a great pick up. he is a solid starter and seems to be most productive during playoff time. I remember the NFC title game where he picked off Mcnabb 3 times in that game 3 TIMES!!!!
