Rams Sign Williams
Moe Williams

Posted Aug 2, 2006

The St. Louis Rams have signed former Minnesota RB Moe Williams....

Stopped in their efforts to acquire running back Michael Bennett from the Saints, the Rams reached agreement Wednesday with former Vikings running back Moe Williams on a one-year contract. Williams was expected to begin practicing with the Rams either Wednesday night or Thursday afternoon.
   "He is familiar with the system and he's a veteran that has played in a role as both a backup and No. 3 guy," Rams coach Scott Linehan said of Williams, who was with the Vikings when Linehan was the offensive coordinator there from 2002-2004.
   Williams underwent microfracture surgery on his knee, but the Rams received a report that the procedure worked, which isn't the case with all players.
   Linehan said, "He feels he's in better shape than he was last year at this time."
   The coach added that the team was "in the mix" for Bennett, but that it just didn't work out. The Saints agreed Tuesday night to deal Bennett to the Kansas City Chiefs for an undisclosed pick in the 2007 draft. Some reports say the pick is in the fourth round.
