Less than 48 hours after trimming their roster to 53 player, and just over a week since losing Donnie Avery to injury, the St. Louis Rams have acquired WR Mark Clayton from the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for "late round" considerations.
Clayton, a former first round pick, became expendable after the Raven signed T.J. Housmanzadah, who was released by the Seahawks this weekend. He never put up big numbers in Baltimore, but the Ravens have never really been much of a passing team...until this year. Clayton has to be relishing the opportunity he has in St. Louis, where he could start with Laurent Robinson and Danny Amendola.
The Rams have an open spot on their practice squad following yesterday's cut, so a player currently on the roster will most likely be moved over there.
