  • S Shivers Signs Three-year Deal

    By ClanRam staff

    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.

      By ClanRam Staff

      The St. Louis Rams signed C Larry Turner to a three-year contract, the team announced today.

      Turner, 6-2, 295, was the first of two Ramsí seventh-round draft selections (238th overall) from Eastern Kentucky University. Voted Most Valuable Offensive Lineman, Turner made the successful move to center as a senior after playing guard for his first three seasons. Last season, he surrendered only two sacks and blocked for an offense that averaged 391.4 yards per game, earning all-Ohio Valley Conference first-team selection in his first year at center. As a junior, the New Carlisle, Ohio native earned all-Ohio Valley Conference first-team honors as he started all season at strong-side offensive guard, and blocked for an offense that averaged 381.5 yards per game.

      Turner is the second 2004 Ramsí draft pick to sign a contract, after S Jason Shivers....

      Erik Jensen has signed a three-year contract with the St. Louis Rams, the team announced Friday. Terms of the deal were not announced.

      Jensen, a 6-foot-2, 255-pound tight end from the University of Iowa, wass the first of the Rams' two seventh-round selections (237th overall) in the 2004 NFL Draft.

      As a senior, Jensen started 12 games for the Hawkeyes, setting career highs in receptions (12) and receiving yards (182) with one touchdown. Jensen caught 24 passes for 282 yards and three touchdowns in his career.

      Jensen is the fourth player of the Rams' 2004 draft class to sign, joining safety Jason Shivers (fifth round selection), center Larry Turner (seventh round) and linebacker Brandon Chillar (fourth round).

      With Jensen's signing, the Rams have three more picks left unsigned as they get ready to open training camp next Tuesday at Western Illinois University in Macomb. Those remaining unsigned include the team's No. 1 pick, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Tony Hargrove and quarterback Jeff Smoker.

      Steelers ink Colclough to 4-year, $3.27M deal

      Cornerback Ricardo Colclough, the second-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the first player chosen from Division II Tusculum College, has reached agreement on his first NFL contract, a four-year deal worth $3.27 million.


      A small-school standout with big-time cover skills, Colclough is the fourth of Pittsburgh's eight draft choices to come to contract terms. But his signing is almost as significant from a league-wide standpoint, given the ponderous pace of negotiations this year.


      The 38th prospect selected overall, Colclough is the second-highest drafted player to date to reach an accord. The only higher pick with a contract in place is linebacker Jason Babin, the latter of the Houston Texans' two first-round picks and the 27th player taken overall in the draft. Colclough is just the third player in the second round, and the sixth player chosen in the first three rounds, to come to terms.


      Overall, as of Sunday morning, only 44 of the 255 draftees have completed deals. And 26 of those players are in the sixth and seventh rounds.


      While negotiations with first-round choices figure to remain slow, there should be a spate of signings in the middle and late rounds this week, as the opening of camps gets closer.


      Colclough, 22, will receive a signing bonus of $1,892,800 and minimum base salaries of $230,000 (2004), $305,000 (2005), $385,000 (2006) and $460,000 (2007).


      Despite being very raw and having performed in a small-school program, Colclough is a superior athlete and is expected to contribute quickly for the Steelers, who are shaking up their secondary after two seasons of surrendering too many big plays. He will compete for either the No. 3 or No. 4 cornerback spot, behind starters Deshea Townsend and Chad Scott, and could also be used on returns.


      "He's definitely got a lot to learn, but he is going to help us this year," said Pittsburgh defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau earlier this spring.


      Colclough moved quickly up draft boards around the NFL after he demonstrated at the Senior Bowl all-star game that he could hold his own against top-level wide receivers. He was a true shut-down corner in Division II, but it was critical for him to convince scouts at the Senior Bowl that his talents projected well to the professional level.


      He played two seasons at Tusculum, following a stint at Kilgore (Tex.) Junior College, and started in all 20 of his appearances. Colclough finished with 15 interceptions (11 as a senior), 106 tackles and 25 passes defensed. He also averaged 28.7 yards on 23 kickoff returns and 14.4 yards on punt runbacks and scored four touchdowns on special teams.

      Denzel Washington's son among non-draftees to sign

      ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Signing the son of actor Denzel Washington on Monday ensured the St. Louis Rams of making a splash the day after the NFL draft ended.

      John David Washington, a 5-10, 200-pound running back was among 10 undrafted players signed by the Rams after playing for Division II Morehouse College last year.

      Washington had a school-record 1,198 yards with a 5.6-yard average and nine touchdowns, and added 10 receptions for 69 yards is senior year. He also ended his career as the school's single-game (242 yards) and career (3,699) leading rusher.

      Washington led the conference in rushing last season, and was named national player of the week by D2Football.com last season.

      Another unusual addition was Connecticut basketball player Ed Nelson, a 6-8 forward who hasn't played football since his freshman year of high school, as a tight end. Nelson played 29 games as a reserve at UConn after transferring from Georgia Tech, averaging three points and three rebounds.

      The Rams also signed kicker Josh Cummings of Pittsburgh, centers Mike Degory of Florida and Donovan Raiola of Wisconsin, tight end Jonathan Williams of New Hampshire, running back Antoine Bagwell of California (Pa.), defensive end Kory Lothe of Eastern Illinois, defensive tackle Tim Sandidge of Virginia Tech and wide receiver Clinton Solomon of Iowa.
