    Rams sign defensive back Michael Stone

    Rams acquire help on special teams

    In a move to bolster their special teams and add depth in the secondary, the
    Rams agreed to terms Thursday with free agent Michael Stone. Contract terms
    weren’t immediately available.

    Stone, 27, was a second-round draft pick by the Arizona Cardinals in 2001 after
    playing his college ball at Memphis. Stone primarily has been a special teams
    player with the Cardinals. A safety/cornerback listed at 6 feet, 201 pounds,
    Stone had only three tackles on defense last season, but was second on the Big
    Red in special teams stops with 17.

    He missed the entire 2003 season with a torn pectoral muscle.

    “This was the No. 1 special teams guy (available) in our evaluations,” said Joe
    Vitt, Rams assistant head coach and linebackers coach.

    Stone could have a chance to get into the mix at safety as well.

    “As people see, you can’t have enough safeties,” Vitt said. “We went through a
    lot of them last year. This kid can run. He can tackle. He’s physical. He
    understands the game. We still think he has ascending skills.”

    After visiting Rams Park at the start of this week, Stone also visited New
    England. Vitt said that signing Stone doesn’t preclude the Rams from signing
    corner/safety Michael Hawthorne, a Green Bay free agent who also visited Rams
    Park earlier this week.

    The guy missed an entire year with a Torn Tittie? What a painful sounding injury.

    That's what happens when you go overboard with a titty twister. Lessons should be learned through his experience.

    If anybody complains about this signing, I will punch them. Right in the kidney.

    It's about time we got special teams studs. BRING BACK ROMAN PHIFER PLEASE!
