  • Rams Make Roster Moves

    By ClanRam Staff

    The St. Louis Rams signed DT Bernard Holsey to a one-year contract the team announced today. The Rams also released S Shane Walton.

    Holsey, 6-2, 286, started all 16 games for the Washington Redskins in 2003 and led defensive linemen collecting 41 tackles (31 solo) and added 2.5 sacks. During his eight-year career, he has played in 104 games, starting 36, and has made 182 tackles (106 solo), 8.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

    Holsey, who played collegiately at Duke, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent by the New York Giants in 1996, and played for them through 1999. In 2000, he played in 16 games, starting 13, for Indianapolis and was out of the NFL in 2001. He returned in 2002 and played in 16 games, starting 13, for New England before being signed as a free agent by Washington in 2003.

    Walton, a fifth round draft choice in 2003, played in four games last season before being placed on injured reserved October 9, tallying six special teams tackles.

    2000 Draft - what a stinker
    by ramhard
    I was reading draft stuff and they had a link to every teams 2000 draft as a recap, since these guys should now be in their prime. You can see why the Rams talent level has dropped off. They got literally NOTHING from this draft.

    CLASS OF 2000
    Tuesday, April 20, 2004

    1st round, 31st overall – Trung Canidate, RB, Arizona
    Canidate played in 36 games with the Rams, starting three, two in 2001 and one in 2002 before being traded to the Washington Redskins before the 2003 season. After playing in only three games due to injuries in his rookie season, the former Wildcat standout put up impressive numbers when given the chance in 2001. Canidate rushed 78 times for 441 yards (5.7 average) with six touchdowns, while making 17 receptions for 154 yards (9.1 average) and returning 36 kickoffs for 748 yards (20.8 average) in 2001.

    In his first career start in place for the injured Marshall Faulk, Canidate rushed 23 times for 195 yards at the New York Jets 10/21/01, scoring two touchdowns. Both touchdowns came on memorable plays – one was a direct snap to Canidate, ran in for 12 yards; and the other was on an option play where WR Az-Zahir Hakim ran 12 yards and pitched the ball to Canidate for the last 44 yards. It was the most rushing yards in a running back’s first career start since Gerald Riggs gained 202 for Atlanta 9/2/84. Canidate became the Rams kickoff returner again at the end of the 2002 season and returned seen kicks for a 28.1-yard average, with a career-long of 53 yards.

    2nd round, 62nd overall – Jacoby Shepherd, CB, Oklahoma State
    Shepherd played in 22 games for the Rams, starting one. In 2000, Shepherd notched 17 tackles (13 solo) with one interception, coming against San Diego 10/1 off Chargers’ QB Jim Harbaugh. He made seven special teams tackles in 2000 and six in 2001 before being placed on the reserve/injured list 11/17. Shepherd was traded to the Houston Texans after the 2001 season for a conditional draft pick.

    3rd round, 94th overall – John St. Clair, OL, Virginia
    St. Clair became the Rams’ starting right tackle in 2002 and performed admirably. The Virginia product started 13 games at right tackle, three games at left tackle, and played at left tackle in two of his starts at right tackle due to injuries to T Orlando Pace and T Grant Williams. In 2003 St. Clair saw action as a goal-line tight end and on special teams, making his first career reception for 18 yards at Cleveland 12/8 on Monday Night Football

    St. Clair spent his first two NFL seasons on the Rams’ active roster, but was a designated inactive for each game in those two seasons. The former first-team all-America selection as a Cavalier signed with the Miami Dolphins as an unrestricted free agent after the 2003 season.

    4th round, 104th overall – Kaulana Noa, OL, Hawaii

    Draft Rewind CLASS OF 1995
    Tuesday, April 11, 2006

    1st round, 6th overall – Kevin Carter, DE, Florida
    Carter spent six seasons with the Rams as the starting left defensive end before being traded to the Tennessee Titans during the 2001 offseason. Carter started 93 of the 96 games he played in St. Louis, making 305 tackles (217 solo) while notching 62.5 sacks. The 1995 Carroll Rosenbloom Memorial Award winner, given to the Rams’ rookie of the year, also had seven fumble recoveries, 14 forced fumbles, and 11 passes defensed. Carter started all four postseason contests the Rams played in during his tenure in St. Louis, including Super Bowl XXXIV against his current team, the Titans. He made eight tackles (six solo) with three sacks in the postseason with the Rams.

    Carter, the former first team all-America choice at Florida, had many memorable achievements with the Rams, including his NFL-high, and official team-record 17 sacks in 1999 (sacks became an official NFL statistic in 1982, but Rams DE David “Deacon” Jones made 22 unofficial sacks in a season twice, in 1964 and 1968). During that Super Bowl season, Carter also had two fumble recoveries, two passes defensed and four forced fumbles, helping him earn his first Pro Bowl invitation.

    2nd round, 38th overall – Zach Weigert, OL, Nebraska
    Weigert spent four seasons with the Rams, starting at both right guard and right tackle in 46 of 49 games. In 1996, Weigert started all 16 games at right tackle and received a game ball against Atlanta 11/10 after helping the team to its highest rushing total (279) since 1984. 1997 was the 1994 Outland Trophy Award winner’s, given to the nation’s top interior lineman in college, most notable as he caught one pass for one yard at Washington 11/30 to give the Rams a first down on the game-winning drive that ended with a 25-yard field goal by K Jeff Wilkins with four seconds remaining. Three weeks later at Carolina 12/20, Weigert scored his first career touchdown as he recovered a fumble by RB Jerald Moore in the end zone, becoming the first Rams offensive lineman to score a touchdown since Tom Newberry in 1986.

    2nd round, 62nd overall – Jesse James, OL, Mississippi
    James spent time with the Rams in both the 1995 and ’96 seasons, playing in two games. The former all-SEC first-team selection made his NFL debut on special teams at Atlanta 11/19/95 and saw his only other action with St. Louis in the 1996 season opener against Cincinnati before being suspended for the next five games for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.

    3rd round, 82nd overall – Steve McLaughlin, K, Arizona
    McLaughlin played the first eight games of the 1995 season for the Rams, scoring 41 points, which gave him a second place finish for the Rams’ scoring title. The 1994 Lou Groza Award winner, given to the nation’s best...

The Oak Park, CA, native redshirted as a true freshman at Washington State, transferred to Citrus Community College in Glendora, CA for two years, before punting for the Eagles the last two years. For Eastern Washington, Nicassio set a school-record punting 112 times for a 42.3-yard average.

    Pagac, 6-0, 218, is a rookie from Ohio State. The Dublin, OH, native played in 39 games with two starts in Buckeyes' career. Pagac totaled 70 tackles (36 solo) with one sack, one fumble recovery, and one interception for Ohio State.

    Sump, 5-11, 186, spent the 2004 Arena Football League season playing for the Los Angeles Avengers. The Colorado School of Mines product spent the 2003 training camp with the San Diego Chargers after earning first-team all-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference honors three times.

    By Kevin King

    St. Louis, MO - Former Oklahoma defensive end C.J. Ah You has re-signed with the St. Louis Rams.

    Ah You signed an exclusive rights free agent deal with the Rams Wednesday for the 395-thousand dollar minimum.

    He played in eight games last season before suffering an ACL tear in November that ended his season. The injury may also keep him out of the season opener.

    Last season, he recorded 17 tackles and one sack.

    Ah You was taken by the Buffalo Bills in the seventh round of the 2007 NFL Draft, but was released prior to the start of the season.

    Two months later, the Rams added him to their practice squad and he's been on the roster ever since.
