St. Louis Rams Sign CB Rod Hood

As expected, the St. Louis Rams signed cornerback Rod Hoodaccording to the Post-Dispatch. The veteran corner will bolster a secondary thin on talent and experience after the loss of Ron Bartell in week one massacre against the Eagles. Terms of the deal are unknown at this time.

Hood is a known commodity for the Rams. He began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent with the Eagles, with Steve Spagnuolo coaching the secondary. Hood spent four years there. Rams fans may remember him from his two year run with the Arizona Cardinals in 2007 and 2008, where he enjoyed some success. 

The Rams checked under the Hood (ha!) twice already this season. Hopefully his knee met with the approval of team medical staff. He will most likely start practicing tomorrow. 

It's not a signing that promises to set the world on fire, but in case you hadn't noticed, the waiver wire isn't exactly filled with stud corners. Hood's experience in this defensive system gives him a leg up on some of the other candidates they looked at recently. Hopefully, he and Bradley Fletcher can stem the bleeding in a defense prone to giving up big plays through three games this season.
