Rams agree to terms with TE Fendi Onobun

The St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms with sixth round draft pick TE Fendi Onobun. The team hasn't officially announced the deal, but Adam Caplan of Fox Sports reports it to be a 4-year deal worth $1.92 million and a $129,000 signing bonus. 

Onobun is the classic sixth round project pick. With measurables of 6'6" and 252 lbs, the University of Houston grad student with just one year of football under his belt, continues the tradition of college hoops players turning into NFL tight ends. Only time will tell if he's the next Antonio Gates. His contributions will be mostly limited to special teams this season, but the coaching staff will be working on a mind meld between him and QB Sam Bradford going forward. 

And finally, some reassurance from the PD's Jim Thomas about the Rams last two unsigned draft picks, Bradford and OT Rodger Saffold:

There's no reason to believe that Bradford won't be in training camp on time, give or take a day or two. Condon does not have a history of holding out clients; and Demoff's track record in signing players has been good so far during his brief tenure in St. Louis.

That's been the talk for some time now. And like we said over the weekend, the Rams don't really have any leverage to play hardball at the negotiating table.
