Running back Jerious Norwood, one of many veteran tailbacks who hadn’t gotten much attention in free agency, visited the Rams today.
And he’s not leaving.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Norwood has agreed to terms with the Rams, where he’ll serve as an understudy to Steven Jackson.
In an April appearance on PFT Live, Rams G.M. Billy Devaney admitted that the team hasn’t done a very good job of getting help for Jackson. Norwood provides that help.
The departure of Norwood could put the Falcons in play for keeping Jason Snelling in Atlanta.
Then again, the Falcons may not miss Norwood. Injuries limited him to two games — and two carries — in 2010.
On that note, we wonder how much help he’ll really provide in St. Louis.
