  • Rams re-sign Lucas and another back

    I am not sure why in the hell we need 4 running backs on our roster.

    Rams bring back Lucas; Bronson out for year Sports
    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.

    Another Arizona State guy. I really hope we're not passing up on better talent because we'd rather get guys from a certain location.

      tight end Mike Brake was release
      Dang. Every kid I'm pulling for gets cut --- Anderson, King, Morgan, Sump, now Brake. If anybody would like to see someone else get cut, just PM their name to me with a $20 money order and I'll be glad to pull for them to stay on the roster. They'll be cut in a matter of hours.
      Trejo, who is 6-2 and 250 pounds, played linebacker at Arizona State alongside Rams safety Adam Archuleta.
      No way, an Arizona State player on the Rams. Who'd a thunk it? (Sarcasm intended)

      Big guy, hope he's a good blocker.
      The more things change, the more they stay the same.

        It's too obvious. He is not coming in as a RB, sMartz's move will be to convert Trejo back to LB.

            dont be surprised if we resign brake and waive burley from the practice squad if he clears waivers.

              "I'm sorry Justin, you're just not good enough to play for the Rams this year."

              A few days later...

              "So Justin, we have a few holes we need filled and you just might be what this team needs."

                Rams shuffle their roster again

                By Jim Thomas
                Of the Post-Dispatch
                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.

                Rams Make Roster Moves
                by RamWraith
                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

                No Rams-Patriots Deal On Running Back

                No Rams-Patriots deal on running back

                On a day Laurence Maroney was shipped to Denver, league sources told the Post-Dispatch that the Rams had been talking to New England about trading for one of its running backs.

                But the sources said the Rams were more interested in other running backs on New England's roster, not so much Maroney, the St. Louis native who has been slowed by injuries for much of his four seasons with the Patriots.

                Maroney, who attended Normandy High and the University of Minnesota, was traded along with a New England sixth-round draft pick to Denver for a Broncos fourth-round pick. Maroney did not play in New England's season opener because of a thigh injury.

                The Patriots currently have four running backs on their roster, including veterans Kevin Faulk, 34, Fred Taylor, 34, and Sammy Morris, 33, plus youngster BenJarvus Green-Ellis, 25.

                The Rams' conversations with the Patriots date back at least to late August, when the teams met in Foxborough for the third game of the preseason. But for now, the Rams' search for backfield help behind Steven Jackson remains just that — a search.

                Otherwise Tuesday was a busy day at Rams Park, although minus any earth-shattering moves. The Rams signed former New York Giants tight end Darcy Johnson to the active roster, releasing defensive tackle Jermelle Cudjo to free up a roster spot.

                The Rams also did some work on their practice squad. Fullback Brit Miller and fullback-tight end Jamie McCoy were added, with wide receiver Brandon McRae and running back Allen Patrick released from the squad to make room.

                The Rams also worked out three street free agents Tuesday: offensive tackle Kirk Chambers, safety Macho Harris and linebacker Kevin Malast. But none of the three was signed.

                Johnson, the tight end, was with the Rams during training camp but didn't survive the cut to 53 players. He's a solid blocker with limited receiving skills. The Rams now have five tight ends on their active roster, but one of them — rookie Michael Hoomanawanui — is expected to miss at least a month with a sprained ankle suffered in the first quarter Sunday against Arizona.

                Hoomanawanui also played fullback, and with him unavailable for several weeks, Mike Karney is the only fullback on the roster. Which probably explains the signings of McCoy and Miller to the practice squad as insurance. McCoy was in training camp with the Rams as an undrafted rookie.

                Miller appeared in five games last season with San Francisco as an undrafted rookie. Miller, who is from Decatur, Ill., was converted to fullback after playing linebacker at the University of Illinois. He had six special teams tackles and was credited with 17 special teams blocks in those five games for the *****.

                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.

                Meet the Rams Undrafted Free Agents ..

                The St. Louis Rams added 24 undrafted free agents to the roster officially on Friday. While most of the names will be players you have never or barely heard of, there are players on this list who will most likely be on the roster come opening day. More importantly for the Rams is to see if some of these players might be good enough to make a difference now and in the future. Here is a quick rundown of each player and whether they will have a shot to make a difference in 2011 and beyond.

                Offensive Line

                Bryant Browning-Guard-Ohio State: If you want to root for someone to make the roster as an undrafted Free Agent this might be the guy. Browning is a three year starter at guard from Ohio State and was their captain. A high character guy who had hamstring issues during the Combine. He has had some problems with the pass rush though. Browning will have a shot at making the roster.

                Tyler Donahue-Tackle-Bowling Green: Donahue was on a bad offensive line in college, but has the strength to give the NFL a shot. He is probably a long shot to even make the practice squad.

                Kevin Hughes-Guard-SE Louisiana: Made the transition from guard to tackle in college and will be asked to try and play guard for the Rams. Clearly he has some versatility which could make him valuable for the Rams. With guard positions up for grabs he could have a shot of making the roster.

                Randall Hunt-Tackle-Illinois: Started 23 games with the Illini and has very good size. More of a run blocker than a pass blocker. Will probably have a tough time making it onto the active roster.

                Karri Kuuttila-Guard/Tackle-Lock Haven: Another offensive lineman who showed versatility during his college days playing both guard and tackle. At 6’6 he will be one of the bigger offensive lineman on the field.

                Jacob McQuaide-Long Snapper-Ohio State: Bringing in a long snapper with Chris Massey on the team makes McQuaide nothing more than a “camp snapper.” A smart guy though. He is an aeronautical engineer major.

                Beau Warren-Center-Virginia Tech: An Honorable Mention All-ACC Center who was the only senior on a Virginia Tech offense that was 14thrunning the football last season. Probably not much of a chance to make the Rams roster.

                Defensive Line

                Damario Ambrose-Defensive End-Arkansas: Only 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks last year for the Razorbacks. Appears to have versatility to play both the end and tackle positions on rushing downs. Low performance in college may or may not translate into the NFL.

                Kenneth Charles-Defensive End-Stephen F. Austin: Keep an eye on Charles in training camp. Charles moved from defensive tackle to end before his senior year in college and he exploded into a dominant player. Charles had 16 sacks and 25 tackles for loss last season. If he can make that...
