Brian McIntyre of Mac’s Football Blog reports that the Rams have signed offensive lineman Robert Turner, formerly of the Jets.
Turner, 27, made just two starts in five seasons with the Jets. He did play a notable role in HBO’s 2010 Hard Knocks series, however, as the goon Jets coach Rex Ryan appointed to light a fire in draft bust Vernon Gholston. The show portrayed that Ryan’s tactics may have worked when Gholston followed up with a couple of nice practices, but Gholston went on to play 16 games without a sack.
He was out of football last year and remains a street free agent.
Turner will be a special teams blocker in St. Louis.
