Rams Trade For Bears Safety Kevin Payne

The St. Louis Rams have traded for safety Kevin Payne from the Chicago Bears. The Rams have given the Bears an undisclosed 2011 draft pick in return for Payne. Kevin Payne from Louisiana-Monroe was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the 5th round of the 2007 NFL Draft. Payne has played in 32 games starting in 22 of those. Payne has 195 tackles, 4 interceptions and 1 sack in his three year NFL career. Payne played at both free and strong safety during the 2009 season. OJ Atogwe should sign his tender on June 1, but the Rams still have a definite need for secondary depth and Payne should help. At 6' and 210 pounds Payne is still not the thumper we need in the secondary but the Rams do continue to add players that should be able to contribute.
