The St. Louis Rams have re-signed defensive end Eric Moore and guard Mark Setterstrom and signed four other free agents, the team announced today. 

Moore, four-year NFL veteran, played in seven games for the Rams and was inactive for nine other contests in 2008.  Moore joined the Rams in 2006 and has spent time on the team's active roster and practice squad.  A former sixth-round draft choice (186th overall) of the New York Giants in 2005, Moore has seen stints with the Giants and New Orleans Saints.

Setterstrom, a seventh-round draft choice (242nd overall) of the Rams in 2006, missed the entire 2008 season after suffering a knee injury in the preseason.  He started the first three games of 2007 before suffering a knee injury that forced him to miss the rest of the year.  As a rookie in 2006, Setterstrom played in seven games with six starts.

The Rams also signed quarterback Jeff Otis, defensive back Marcus Brown, tight end Eric Butler, and center Tim Mattran. 

Otis is a St. Louis native and the son of former St. Louis Cardinal, Jim Otis.  Jeff Otis attended Christian Brothers Academy in St. Louis before playing collegiately at Columbia.  He entered the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals in 2006 and was allocated to the Frankfurt Galaxy of NFL Europe.  Otis has seen practice squad stints with the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders.

Brown signed as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Arizona Cardinals out of McNeese State.  He spent time as a member of the Cardinals practice squad in 2008 before being signed by the Cincinnati Bengals after the regular season.  He was released by the Bengals in early March. 

Butler played collegiately at Mississippi State and entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the New York Giants.  Butler spent 2008 on practice squads of the Giants and Indianapolis Colts.

Mattran, a Stanford University product, spent 2008 as a member of the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars practice squads.  He entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Vikings in 2008.
