Rams set to sign veteran guard Davin Joseph

The Rams continue to add parts for their offensive line, with a veteran addition that could pay dividends.

According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, the Rams are set to sign veteran guard Davin Joseph, formerly of the Buccaneers.

He visted the Rams in March, and has also done the tour with stops in Dallas and New England.

The two-time Pro Bowler could obviously lend some guard depth after the Rams lost Shelley Smith to Miami in free agency. They were able to hang onto Rodger Saffold and drafted Greg Robinson second overall, giving them what should be a good set of guards (assuming Jake Long is well enough to play left tackle to start the season).

Of course, that would require Joseph to be recovered from the knee injury that cost him last season, but if he’s well, he could help.

    More talented strength for the trenches. Bradford might just get time to throw.

    Next move will be the June 1st Scott Wells cut in order to pay for this.

    They needed insurance in case Saffold or Robinson ends up playing LT at any point.

    Who’s going to play QB when Bradford gets hurt or benched ??

    He didn’t have a knee injury last season and played the whole year, he just completely sucked…and I’m sure he still does.

    a former pro bowler as a back up for depth is fine long is not guaranteed to be ready so another guy as insurance makes sense to me especially if he comes on the cheap!! this is not gonna make barrett jones feel too secure however.
