The St. Louis Rams have signed former Tennessee Titans defensive end William Hayes to a one year deal.
The addition of Hayes helps the Rams shore up their defensive line with the departure of James Hall.
A four-year veteran, Hayes had his best season in 2009 when he started 11 games and had 50 total tackles with 4 sacks. Hayes is primarily thought of as a run stuffer and could potentially help a Rams ball club that gave up 152 rushing yards per game last season, second worst in the league.

GREGG THE BOUNTY HUNTER
If it were up to Cris Carter, Gregg Williams would never set foot on an NFL sideline ever again.
The Titans will have a sort of homecoming for numerous members of the organization the quarterbacks in particular when they kick off their preseason schedule at Seattle.
A date has yet to be officially scheduled, but the game will be played between Aug. 9 and 13. With veteran Matt Hasselbeck and Washington state native Jake Locker set to battle it out for the team's starting...
Now here's an idea you don't see every day. The St. Louis Rams may have blundered by trading away the chance to draft Robert Griffin III.
Football Nation contributor Justin Bonnema proposes that very thought today when he wrote:
"What [the Rams] have done is trade themselves into the six overall pick, just above mid-round mayhem. They’ve successfully secured a spot...
Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has had a very interesting career to say the least. Johnson was projected to go in either the second or third round in the 2008 NFL draft before running a 4.24 40-yard dash. His combine performance warranted a first-round grading as he was taken 24th overall by the Titans.
Johnson’s rookie year saw him finish second in AP rookie of...
Many of us are guilty at times of being short-sighted when it comes to the draft, looking at upgrades that are hoped for now while overlooking future needs. In that vein, I believe it's a good idea to take a look at the Titans starters (or those who could be starters) in 2012 whose contracts will expire at the end of this season.Seven players in the last year of their contracts...
5. Cortland Finnegan, CB, St. Louis Rams
Cortland Finnegan, who recently signed a massive five-year deal with the St. Louis Rams after becoming a Pro Bowl cornerback with the Tennessee Titans, would love to be called the NFL's dirtiest player (as he has once declared). Don't let his diminutive stature (5-foot-9, 190 pounds) fool you; he's one pesky, annoying man. Heck...
As an Ole Miss grad, the subject of his alma mater might have proved a tempting one for Ruston Webster to bring up during his organization's recruitment of Peyton Manning seeing as Manning's brother Eli and father Archie played there but the Tennessee Titans new general manager kept the discussions to business.
"All Titans," said Webster, who was elevated to...
Earlier today, I mentioned the fallout from BountyGate has predictably divided the public into two factions: Those, like a certain Vikings punter, who are adamantly and vehemently against Gregg Williams’ tactics, and those who choose to take a softer stance on the subject matter.
We’ve already seen one end of the spectrum, but now we’re seeing the other end — the sympathetic...
Nobody knows anything.
That’s the title of chapter five in Brian Billick’s book “More Than A Game”, in which Coach Billick describes how teams are about 50/50 when it comes to drafting a quarterback with the first overall pick. The underlying theme suggests that no matter how much film study a team does and no matter how good a player is in college or at the combine, none...
