The Rams have signed tight end Zach Potter, according to the NFL’s Monday transaction report.

The 6-foot-7, 265-pound Potter appeared in all 16 games for the Jaguars in 2012, catching two passes for six yards. Potter played 199 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Potter will likely be vying for a spot behind Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks on the Rams’ tight end depth chart. Potter’s blocking would figure to be one of the keys to whether he sticks on the final roster.

Potter, 27, is entering his fifth NFL season. A defensive end at Nebraska, Potter originally signed with the Jets after the 2009 draft before joining Jacksonville.

    They should have signed his brother Harry instead.

    Good for Jack Potter getting some love on PFT……

    It’s about time someone outside of the equipment manager recognized Jack. He is a class act and a total team player.

    I understand his roommate TE Kyle Reed was asked for a comment… “There is no I in Jack, total team player.”

    @thesteelers – I’m sorry yours is a team on the decline, while the Rams are on the rise. Sounds as if it’s taking a toll on you, at least you have the Pirates to root for still.. LOL
