The St. Louis Rams are giving a another player a chance, signing former New England Patriot and University of Missouri receiver T.J. Moe. Moe wasn't drafted last April in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Patriots signed him as an undrafted free agent, but he ruptured his Achilles last May. He was released in March.

At 5'11 and 204 pounds, T.J. Moe is often compared to slot receivers Danny Amendola and Wes Welker.  He ran a 4.74 in the 40 yard dash; but game tape, suggests he's quick a quick receiver with reliable hands. He's the prototype for a slot receiver, the position he will likely be fighting for with the Rams.

There's a chance that Moe could make the Rams final 53 roster, but right now, it's hard to look at this signing as anything more than a tryout type deal. If he does make the final roster, he will more than likely be Tavon Austin's backup.

Moe joins Kenny Britt as the second receiver that the Rams have picked up in the off-season. Despite the two moves, the Rams could still draft a receiver like Texas A&M's Mike Evans or Clemson's Sammy Watkins.

The Rams are still looking for talent at a position that has a lot of question marks.
