Rams Low on Cornerbacks Sign Marcus Brown

Even with an 80 man roster the St. Louis Rams secondary is in need of more healthy players. The Rams added cornerback Marcus Brown to their training-camp roster. Brown was an undrafted free agent picked up by the Arizona Cardinals in 2008. He also was on the Cincinnati Bengals and St. Louis Rams practice squads in 2009. The Rams will bring him back and give him another opportunity to make the squad.

The Rams currently have 5 cornerbacks injured Ron Bartell (ankle), Bradley Fletcher (knee) and Justin King (calf), Jerome Murphy (ankle), and Kevin Dockery (hip). Young players Marquis Johnson, Kevin Dockery and Antoine Thompson were all torched by the Minnesota Vikings in extended action Saturday night. To make matters even worse safeties James Butler (knee) and Craig Dahl (knee) are also injured.

Marcus Brown is a large corner at 6' 2" and 200 pounds who preformed very well at his pro day in 2008: CB Marcus Brown (6-1 ¼, 201): Ran the 40 in 4.53 (against the wind) and 4.35 (with wind), had a 43 ½-inch vertical jump, 11-foot, 6-inch long jump, 4.18 short shuttle, 7.09 cone drills, 7 reps in the bench press, and ran position drills.
