Default Rams sign Stephen Davis

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2569091

The St. Louis Rams found a veteran backup running back who can help their workhorse Steven Jackson when they agreed to a one-year, $850,000 contract with running back Stephen Davis on Friday.

The deal includes a $40,000 signing bonus and a minimum base salary of $810,000. Barring complications, the contract should be made official Friday, and Davis, a 10-year veteran, will begin practicing with the Rams for their Sept. 10 regular-season opener.

Davis, 32, was released by the Carolina Panthers on March 1 in a salary cap-related move that could also be attributed to Davis' history of chronic knee problems. The move saved Carolina nearly $3 million against the cap.

Davis visited the Rams a week ago, passed a physical and received an offer. The team awaited word for a week and Davis and the Rams finally worked out the deal Friday morning.

With Marshall Faulk gone for the season, Davis was a perfect fit to work with Jackson, who is considered one of the best young backs in the game.
