The St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms on a new deal with center Tim Barnes.

According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Barnes is expected to sign the one-year, $1 million deal with the Rams on Tuesday.

Barnes was not tendered as a restricted free agent by the Rams and allowed to hit the market. After a visit with the Kansas City Chiefs, Barnes elected to stay in St. Louis.

Barnes started four games in place of an injured Scott Wells at center at the end of the 2013 season. Barnes has appeared in 45 games for the Rams over the last three seasons while serving primarily on special teams.

  1. Solid signing, this is an under the radar move that shows Snead knows how to build a football team.

    However, they are missing a key piece. This team would be scary good if they had a QB. Trading Bradford wasn’t necessarily a mistake, but for Nick Foles?? He wasn’t good in a system designed to make mediocre QBs look good.

    Tim Barnes might as well be ready to block for 6-7 seconds, and be ready to block 2 Defensive Lineman and perhaps a Linebacker or a Safety, all at the same time.

    They don’t have to be technically sound like Bradford, just have some guts and throw the dang ball.

  2. I’m Glad the Chiefs did not sign Tim Barnes. Even though he is a Mizzou product, he would have been one of those “Filler” guys that are on your roster but get paid to do nothing./ A glorified 3rd string qb.

  3. @fake french You are wrong about the Rams needing a qb. Nick Files is the real deal and has posted a top 5 qb rating through first 25 games to start a career.. there’s a big and good reason the majority of Eagles fans were upset Chip traded him for Sam.. I’ve been watching Nick very close for 6 years and he is very very good!! No doubt one of the top young QBs in the league.. Mark it down with moves like this Chip will be back in the college ranks in 3 years!
