Rams add seven to offseason roster

EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams took care of a little business on Tuesday evening, signing seven practice squad members to their offseason roster.

The Rams signed receivers Devon Wylie and Emory Blake, defensive tackle Doug Worthington, linebacker Marshall McFadden, offensive tackle Steven Baker, guard Travis Bond and defensive back Christian Bryant.

Of that group, only McFadden spent time on the active roster this season. He appeared in five games for the Rams, working exclusively in a special teams role. When the Rams brought end Chris Long back from injured reserve late in the season, McFadden was sent back to the practice squad.

Bryant is the only Rams' draft pick among those signing. He was a seventh-round pick in last year's NFL draft but did not make the roster out of training camp.

Blake has been a mainstay on the practice squad the past couple of seasons. Bond also spent time on the Rams roster in preseason this year before being released. Wylie, Worthington and Baker were added from various other stops throughout the season.
