          Rams sign fifth-round draft pick

          The Rams signed safety Jason Shivers of Arizona State, their fifth-round choice (158th overall) in April's draft, to a four-year contract Thursday. The 6-foot, 201-pound Shivers turned in a strong showing at last month's minicamps and is a strong contender for a backup job behind Aeneas Williams and Adam Archuleta.

          Shivers, whose agent is St. Louis-based Reggie Smith, landed a deal worth $1,031,000. Shivers receives a signing bonus of $111,000, plus base salaries of $230,000 this year, $305,000 in 2005 and $385,000 in '06.

          "We've got that put to bed," Smith said. "It wasn't going to be a big deal to get that one done."

          Shivers, 21, is a Phoenix native. He led Arizona State in tackles in each of his three seasons.

          He was an All-Pacific 10 Conference honoree and a third-team All-American last year, and was named the Sun Devils' most valuable player on defense as well as their special teams MVP.

          He played in 36 games for ASU, starting the final 34, before leaving after his junior season. He recorded 314 tackles, including two sacks and five others for lost yardage. He intercepted six passes, had three fumble recoveries and forced five fumbles.

          Shivers averaged 26.4 yards on five kickoff returns and 5.3 yards on three punt returns.

          He completed all but a few hours toward his degree in landscape architecture and business while also running his own company. Shivers Landscaping employs 20 people in Phoenix.

          Though he played mostly free safety at ASU, Shivers said, "I knew everything as far as strong (safety). Right now, I feel like I know both positions very well."

          He added that he believes his skills mesh nicely with the Rams' defensive schemes.

          "The defense is beautiful," he said. "I'm happy where I am."

            S Jason Shivers has signed a three-year contract with the St. Louis Rams, the team announced today.

            Shivers, the Rams' fifth-round draft selection from Arizona State (158th overall), played in 36 games for the Sun Devils, starting the final 34. He recorded 314 tackles (186 solo) with two sacks, five tackles for loss, three fumble recoveries, five forced fumbles, six interceptions, and 10 passes defensed. Shivers also averaged 26.4 yards on five kickoff returns and 5.3 yards on three punt returns.

            The Phoenix, AZ, native left ASU after his junior year that saw him earn Defensive and Special Teams MVP honors. Also as a junior, Shivers earned all-America third-team and all-Pac 10 Conference first-team honors by the NFL Draft Report, adding second-team all-Pac 10 honors from the league's media.

            Shivers is the first 2004 Rams' draft choice to sign a contract, and the 16th draft pick in the NFL to sign to this point....

            Sanders signed
            by RamWraith
            Colts signed S Bob Sanders to a five-year, $37.5 million extension through 2012. The deal includes $20 million in guarantees.

            The deal makes him the NFL's highest paid safety. Sanders, a two-time Pro Bowler who entered the league as only a second-round pick in 2004 due to concerns over his height (5'8), is the leading candidate for Defensive Player of the Year. He has 90 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions, and six breakups as the starting strong safety in the NFL's top secondary this year

            McCollum contract details
            by general counsel
            two years, 2.5 million total, which includes 500k upfront, cap hit presumably of 1.25 million per year. Seems like an excellent deal for me, good depth and possibly a starter depending on how incongnito develops.
