    The St. Louis Rams finally have a full backfield after reaching a three-year contract agreement with fullback Mike Karney on Tuesday night.

    Karney agreed to a three-year, $3.6 million contract that includes $1.2 million in guarantees, according to a source. The Rams have been struggling at that position since they released Madison Hedgecock in 2007. Hedgecock ended up becoming a Pro Bowl alternate for the New York Giants last season.

    The signing of Karney gives St. Louis a chance to be more successful in two-back formations. The 27-year-old Karney was named to the All-Pro team in 2006 when he played for the New Orleans Saints. The Saints released him on March 5, putting one of the league's more respected fullbacks on the market. The Rams were quick to have him in for a visit.

    The 5-foot-11, 258-pound Karney had 46 career starts in five seasons with the Saints. Karney will be the blocking back for Rams halfback Steven Jackson.

    Absolutely love this signing!

    yes!!!!!!! things are really looking up.

    This a weird analogy, but it is like when your buddy breaks up with his terrible girlfriend and changes his house to a bachelor Pad and you say I really like what you have done with the place.

    We now have a good FB and if we draft Loadholt in Round 2 we would have a monster line for Jackson to run behind.

    LT - Barron 6'7 320
    LG - Greco 6'4 320
    C - Brown 6'3 325
    RG - Incognito 6'3 330
    RT - Loadholt 6'8 332

    FB - Karney 5'11 255

    Jackson and Bulger should be very happy with the new regime if they can assemble those blockers for them.

    The only problem I have with that is our big money free agent last year is left off that list. Even if he doesn't work out at RT do you really see Greco taking Bell's starting spot? I think it may be possible for him to surpass Bell eventually, but I think if we draft Loadholt then Bell will be our starting LG on opening day.

    But hey, those are some big boys paving some holes for THE Big Boy.

    I'm really feeling this pickup right now. Devaney and Co. are bringing in some quality players, might not be the flashy type of acquisitions, but they can play solid football for years to come.

    Steven Jackson is giving out high fives right now, as I am. High five everyone!

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!
