  • Rams re-sign Daniel Fells, Mike Karney

    Adam Schefter's twitter and

    "Rams re-signed TE Daniel Fells to a one-year, $1.5 million deal."

    The Rams plan to draft a tight end (per Arizona's Rob Gronkowski), but Fells currently tops the depth chart after hauling in 21 balls for 273 yards and three touchdowns last year. St. Louis won't have a fantasy-caliber TE in 2010.

    "Rams agreed to terms with FB Mike Karney on a three-year, $3.6 million contract. The deal includes $1.2 million guaranteed."

    St. Louis has searched for a punishing lead blocker since Scott Linehan inexplicably waived Madison Hedgecock in-season two years ago. Karney, 28, should have something left in the tank. He's not much of a threat with the ball in his hands, but only turns 28 this July and was an All Pro in 2006. Karney is used to playing in a dome and figures to help Steven Jackson.

    i thought Karney was still under contract with us anyway..if not..good to see him locked up for 3 years now .

    the way Schefter is talking about him is like we have signed a player that wasnt already on the roster beforehand tho..

        The Karney thing is from last year. He signed a three year contract last year.

        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.

          hahaha you right RamsSB. damn u rotoworld. anyway i'm still glad to see Fells resigned. he's a fine #2 TE and hopefully we can snag one in the draft as its one of the deepest positions this year.
