Ben Leber Adds To St. Louis Defensive Overhaul


Ben Leber signed with St. Louis today, re-joining his old linebackers coach Paul Ferraro and former Minnesota defensive line coach Brendan Daly (from 2006-2008). Leber’s do-it-all lunch pail-mentality is the same as that of many others on the squad. It’s a one-year, $1.25 million deal (Clayton, ESPN).

This Ram defense looks completely different from the last season of the Scott Linehan era:

FS  O.J. Atogwe                                Quentin Mikell
SS Corey Chavous                           Craig Dahl
LCB Ronald Bartell                          Ronald Bartell
RCB Fakhir Brown                           Bradley Fletcher
