Stanley out, Amendola in

The St. Louis Rams made a move today to address their kick return problems, signing WR/KR Danny Amendola from the Philadelphia practice squad. To make room for the move they released last year's kick returner Derek Stanley.

This strikes me as a bit of a curious, albeit low level, move. Stanley, who returned kicks for the Rams most of last year, before injury derailed his season, averaged 24.8 yards per return. This year, Stanley had yet to return a kick for a team averaging 16.2 yards on 6 kick returns. Four players have returned kicks for the Rams, including blocking TE Billy Bajema.

Stanley had been returning punts, averaging 12.3 yards per return this season.

Amendola will return kicks and punts. He's a Texas Tech guy who came to the league as an undrafted free agent in 2008.
