Rams Sign Danario Alexander

The St. Louis Rams have announced that they have signed free agent wide receiver Danario Alexander to a contract on Sunday. Last years 5th round draft pick Brooks Foster was released to make room for Alexander. With the Rams wide-outs only making three catches Saturday night against the Cleveland Browns the Rams are in need of some additional talent at the WR position. Last season at Mizzou Alexander caught 113 passes for 1,781 yards and 14 touchdowns. During his career Alexander had 191 receptions for 2,778 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Danario Alexander hurt his knee while participating at the Senior Bowl in January and was unable to participate at the combine or pro-day, and was not drafted by any team in April due to the serious knee issues he has had the past few years. Alexander however is a excellent athlete who has been timed in the 4.4 second range, has broad jumped 11-feet, 1-inch and has a 43 inch vertical jump. Doctors stated Alexander would be ready by training camp and he passed a physical in St. Louis back in early August. The only question is what took the Rams so long to take a chance on Danario.
