Romberg breaks through among Rams castoffs

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

Another NFL team has signed one of the Rams' unrestricted free agents for the first time since the current signing period opened Feb. 27.

Center Brett Romberg, whose prospects in St. Louis dimmed even before the team signed Jason Brown from the Ravens, has reached an agreement with the Falcons.

The Rams still have a league-high 15 unrestricted free agents without contracts for 2009. No other team has more than 12 (Seattle). Romberg was a part-time starter for the Rams last season. He appeared best suited to a utility backup role.
