Rams Sign Fullback Mike Karney

Coming off the release of OT Orlando Pace (Devaney says Barron for now is the LT and Bell is the RT), the Rams signed former Saint Mike Karney.

Karney is a 5 year pro who is 5’11”, 255 lbs. Now that’s a big blocker, something the Rams need to show Steven Jackson that there ARE holes open for him and that he doesn’t have to run all the way to the sideline to pick up a yard.

Karney isn’t much of a receiver or runner, and in 5 years has totaled 39 rushes for 79 yards and 5 touchdowns, to add with 53 receptions for 295 yards and 2 touchdowns. He’s regarded as a good blocker and not much of a receiving back, probably why the Saints dumped him.

He agreed to a 3 year deal for 3.6 million dollars total.
