Former Eagles defensive tackle Trevor Laws tweeted Wednesday evening that he has joined the St. Louis Rams. Citing league sources, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has confirmed the news and reports that Laws agreed to terms a one-year deal.
Laws, who turns 27 before the season, tallied 20 tackles and a sack as a reserve lineman in Philadelphia last year. He was a disappointment as the 47th overall pick in the 2008 draft, but the Rams need defensive tackles to bolster an annually poor run defense.
Laws, who will compete for playing time next to Kendall Langford in St. Louis, was the No. 75 overall player on the PFT Hot 100.
