Rams placed waiver claim on receiver

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Rams tried and failed to claim recently released Chiefs receiver Will Franklin off waivers, but the Lions' claim prevailed based on their worse record in 2008.

The Rams did add to their numbers at receiver late last week by signing Horace Gant, a former undrafted free agent from Division III St. Olaf. Gant is 6-foot-3 and 214 pounds.

Franklin was a fourth-round pick in 2008. He had seven catches in 13 games as a rookie.
