Rams Sign RB Quinn Porter; Will Return Kicks

The St. Louis Ram added a running back to the 53-man roster today. Quinn Porter was signed away from the Cleveland Browns practice squad. Porter will be the third running back on the roster this week, behind Cadillac Williams and Jerious Norwood, with Steven Jackson out against the Giants

According to Porter's agent, he will return kicks for the Rams. Jerious Norwood returned kicks last week for the Rams, and I wonder if he will now replace Danny Amendola on punt returns. In training camp this year, rookie WR Greg Salas did some return work, and fellow rookie WR Austin Pettis had one return in the preseason. Amendola gave the Rams a solid option at punt returner, and that contribution will be missed. The Eagles punted just once last week...once. 

Porter was an undrafted rookie last year signed by the Packers. He bounced around before ending up with the Cleveland Browns. Hmm, think they got some insight from Pat Shurmur?

He was wearing number 39. Obviously, that will change with the Rams. 

Expect another move or two soon.
