Rams chipping away at draft-pick signings

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Rams have reached contract agreements with fifth-round pick Brooks Foster and seventh-rounder Chris Ogbonnaya. Bryan McIntyre previously mentioned the Ogbonnaya's deal on Mac's Football Blog.

The framework for a deal with Foster appeared set after players drafted around him reached contract agreements. The 153rd through 163rd overall choices now have deals; Foster, a receiver from North Carolina, was the 160th player drafted.

NFC West teams now have deals with 17 of 29 draft choices from the 2009 class. The Rams have reached agreements with three of seven choices.
