Rams add a DT to the practice squad

The St. Louis Rams made a minor move today, swapping out a couple of defenders on the practice squad. 

Cornerback Terrail Lambert was released to make room for DT Mitch King, according to an evening tweet from Jim Thomas of the Post-Dispatch. Both players were former members of the Colts' practice squad. Lambert spent last year there, picked up after the 49ers released him. A former Iowa player, King was signed by the Titans in 2009 as an undrafted rookie free agent. The Colts picked him up this year, and cut ties on Nov. 12. 

According to his scouting report at SBNation, King is mostly a role player, and is probably some insurance for Darrell Scott who has been dealing with injuries lately. 

LB Clint Ingram and DT Boo Robinson paid a visit to Rams Parks today, neither left with a contract. Ingram, a former Jaguars third round pick,  sat out last year with an injury. That the Rams at least kicked the tires on Ingram could signal that they have some concerns about the OLB issue that's been widely discussed here, there and elsewhere. From Ingram's SBNation scouting report:

A high-energy big hitter who also wraps well. Anticipates nicely in coverage and keeps mistakes to a minimum. Picks his spots for the occasional sack.

The coverage thing is intriguing.
