Karney's deal keeps fullback market moving

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The fullback market is moving again now that former Saints starter Mike Karney and the Rams have agreed to terms on a contract.

This presumably means Leonard Weaver will find a home in the near future. The Eagles and Bucs are possibilities for the unrestricted free agent from Seattle. Weaver could also re-sign with the Seahawks.

If Weaver signs elsewhere, the Seahawks might be more likely to sign former Raider Justin Griffith, who visited with the team recently and played for Seattle offensive coordinator Greg Knapp in Oakland and Atlanta.

Meanwhile, Karney gives the Rams a straight-ahead blocking fullback to clear running lanes for Steven Jackson. Jackson lobbied for a physical fullback last season. Karney is nearly 260 pounds. The first time I really noticed him was when he laid out then-Seahawks cornerback Andre Dyson during an exhibition game before the 2005 season.
