The Rams needed a center, and now they have one.
Veteran center John Sullivan will sign with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Rams have been looking for a center since cutting last year’s starter, Tim Barnes. They signed Ryan Groy to an offer sheet as a restricted free agent, but the Bills matched the offer. Sullivan was next on the list and is now in place as the Rams’ center.
The 31-year-old Sullivan was the Vikings’ starter from 2009 to 2014 but missed the entire 2015 season, then went to Washington last year and was a backup. New Rams coach Sean McVay coached Sullivan in Washington last year, so Sullivan arrives already knowing the offense.
Sullivan was the No. 85 player in our Free Agent Hot 100.
