    St. Louis Rams to retain DE Leonard Little

    per JT on stltoday.com
    INDIANAPOLIS _ At least one of the Rams dwindling number of Super Bowl ”survivors” is staying with the team. During a Sunday evening meeting here at the NFL Scouting Combine, the Rams informed the agents for Leonard Little that they are retaining the veteran defensive end on their 2009 roster.

    Little, 34, has one year remaining on his contract. Although he counts $7.6 million against the cap this coming season, only $2.5 million of that amount comes in the form of base salary and roster bonus. So the team wouldn’t really save all that much money by trading or releasing Little, who finished second on the team with six sacks in ‘08 despite playing much of the year with a torn hamstring.

    Little, wide receiver Torry Holt, and left tackle Orlando Pace are the only remaining players on the current roster who played in the Super Bowl 34 victory over Tennessee in 1999.

    Great news! Now Hopefully LL can stay healthy and have another break out season his new Headcoach.
    Bet Spags was instrumental in retaining Leonard Little's services.

    Six sacks by Little while playing most of the year with a torn hamstring. It seems like the last two years he has had several injuries. If he can have one last year of being healthy it could be a huge boost for this team. 2006 was the last time he was really healthy and he had 13 sacks. If healthy next year under Spags with a healthy Carriker and Long in his second year could make for a much improved pass rush.

    The sad part about Little is in his 11 year career he has only played in more then 14 games 3 times (2002, 2004, 2006).
