Rams Sign Davis

Posted Sep 1, 2006

The St. Louis Rams have been looking for a number two back, now they have one....

The Rams signed running back Stephen Davis to a 1-year contract Friday worth $850,000 that includes a $40,000 signing bonus. He will count $465,000 against the salary cap.
   In addition to the signing bonus, the Rams guaranteed $425,000 of his base salary. Davis also signed a split contract that will pay him less ($325,000) if he ends up on injured reserve.
   Davis wanted guaranteed money because of $275,000 in injury protection he was entitled to after ending the 2005 season on injured reserve. If Davis is on the Rams' opening-day roster, the entire base salary of $810,000 will become guaranteed, but would be superceded by the split if he is injured.
