  • Rams Make Roster Moves

    The St. Louis Rams have signed G Chris Dishman and TE Ryan Prince, the team announced today. The franchise has also released P Jesse Nicassio.

    Dishman, 6-3, 375, is a product of Nebraska and will enter his eighth NFL season in 2004. He played his entire career with Arizona after being drafted by the Cardinals in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 1997 NFL Draft. Dishman played in 14 games for Arizona in 2003, starting two.

    Prince, 6-4, 253, is a product of Weber State. The Farmington, UT, native is an NFL Europe exemption to the Rams' roster after playing the 2004 NFLEL season for the Berlin Thunder. Prince was released by San Diego earlier in the week after spending part of the 2004 offseason with the Chargers. Prince spent 2003 training camp with the Oakland Raiders and 2002 camp in Jacksonville. In 2001, Prince played in eight games, starting two, for the Jaguars in his only NFL action.

    Nicassio, 6-0, 192, was a rookie from Eastern Washington who signed with the club on June 10

      The more things change, the more they stay the same.

            The St. Louis Rams have signed DB Nijrell Eason, P Jesse Nicassio, LB Fred Pagac, and WR Brian Sump to one-year contracts, the team announced today. In other roster moves, the Rams released WR Nick Narcisse and DT Jeff Ruffin.

            Eason, 6-0, 200, spent last season on the Cardinals' reserve/injured list with a shoulder injury. The Arizona State product has played in one NFL game, for Arizona in 2002, after spending most of the season on their practice squad. Eason was also allocated to NFL Europe in 2002 by the Pittsburgh Steelers and spent 2001 training camp with the Cardinals after signing with the club as an undrafted free agent.

            Nicassio, 6-0, 192, is a rookie from Eastern Washington. 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.

            Narcisse, 5-11, 178, was a rookie from Tulane who signed with the Rams on April 30.

            Ruffin, 6-3, 295, was a rookie from Illinois who signed with the Rams on April 30....

            Rams re-sign Lucas and another back
            by RamWraith
            I am not sure why in the hell we need 4 running backs on our roster.

            Rams bring back Lucas; Bronson out for year

            The roster shuffling at Rams Park continued today when the team signed safety Justin Lucas, who had been cut Sunday, and former Detroit Lions running back Stephen Trejo.

            To make roster space, safety Zack Bronson was placed on injured reserve and tight end Mike Brake was release
            Bronson, who signed with the Rams on Sept. 4 after seven seasons in San Francisco, suffered an ankle injury Wednesday and will miss the entire season.

            Lucas played five seasons for Arizona before coming to the Rams in the offseason. He recorded eight solo tackles this preseason but was released in Sunday's roster cutdown. Brake was an undrafted free agent from Akron who had appeared to be an improbable addition to the 2004 roster.

            Trejo, who is 6-2 and 250 pounds, played linebacker at Arizona State alongside Rams safety Adam Archuleta. He made the Lions' roster as an undrafted free agent and moved to offense, where he appeared in 46 games over three seasons in Detroit.

            The roster-shuffling continues unabated at Rams Park.

            On Friday, little more than 48 hours before Sunday's season-opening kickoff, the Rams made two more moves. As expected, the roster exemption was lifted for left tackle Orlando Pace, meaning he is on the active roster and counts against the 53-man limit.

            Offensive tackle Greg Randall was released to make room for Pace, who signed his one-year, $7.02 million franchise tender on Sunday night.

            Also, the Rams promoted cornerback Dwight Anderson from their practice squad to the active roster. Linebacker Dedrick Roper, the former Pittsburgh Steeler signed earlier in the week, was released to make room for Anderson. Dedrick, we barely knew you.

            The move leaves the Rams with only five linebackers on their 53-man roster.

            Anderson, a rookie free agent from South Dakota, potentially will help a secondary that is thin at cornerback because of Travis Fisher's broken forearm. Anderson is fast, athletic, but very raw.

            The Rams have made seven changes to their active roster, involving 14 players, since last Sunday's "final" roster cuts.

            Nfl Europe National Player Assigned To Rams
            by RamDez
            By ClanRam Staff

            The St. Louis Rams have been assigned G Peter Heyer as part of the NFL International Development Practice Squad program, the team announced today.

            Heyer, 6-3, 310, saw action this past NFL Europe season for the Rhein Fire, starting in five of the six games he played. As one of NFL Europe's national players, Heyer will spend the entire 2004 season on the Rams' practice squad. The native of Germany will also not be eligible to be claimed by another team or promoted to an active roster.

            "This program is a major step in our development of international players," said NFLEL Senior Director of Football Operations Nick Polk. "We are very excited about seeing how these players progress mentally and physically during an intense few months with their NFL teams."

            Heyer played in the last six games of the Fire's season, starting the last five, after he played in nine games for the fire in 2003. After the 2003 season, Heyer was in training camp with the New Orleans Saints. In 2002, Heyer played in all 10 games for the Fire.

            "For Peter, as for all of these guys, this is going to be a great opportunity to receive intensive coaching," said Cologne Centurions' offensive assistant and former St. Louis Rams' guard Tom Nütten. "The most important thing for them will be the opportunity to work on their technique, and I would expect them all to come back to Europe as much improved players."

            In college, Heyer won the German Football League championship in 2000 as a member of the Cologne Crocodiles, and was a European champion with the German national team in 2001. Heyer has also represented the Team Europe junior all-star squad in the annual Global Junior Championship played ahead of the Super Bowl.

            The other three players who were assigned are S Richard Yancy to the San Francisco ***** (Germany, Rhein Fire), DE Christian Mohr to the Seattle Seahawks (Germany, Berlin Thunder), and G Rolando Cantu to the Arizona Cardinals (Mexico, Berlin Thunder)....

            Rams Cut 5 As Roster Nears Pre-Camp Limit

            Rams cut 5 as roster nears pre-camp limit

            BY KATHLEEN NELSON | Posted: Thursday, July 1, 2010

            The Rams have released five more players: running back DeMaundray Woolridge, defensive end James Wyche, linebacker K.C. Asiodu, defensive tackle Leger Douzable and center Clint Mower.

            Douzable appeared in 12 games last season, starting once and making 11 tackles.

            Asiodu appeared in 10 games and made eight tackles.

            Along with the release earlier of cornerback Danny Gorrer, the moves bring the roster down to 82 players. The number must be reduced to 80 by the time rookies report July 28.

            The New Orleans Saints acquired Gorrer off waivers. A rookie from Texas A&M, Gorrer played in three games and made one start, accumulating five tackles.
