The Rams signed free agent wide receiver Steve Smith, filling a pressing need.
Smith, who led the NFL with a franchise-record 107 receptions for the Giants in 2009 and made the Pro Bowl, will be entering his sixth season. Last year he caught nine passes in 11 games for the Eagles before being sidelined by a knee injury.
Smith was a second-round draft pick in 2007 and had five catches for 50 yards in the Giants’ Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots. He has 231 career receptions with 12 touchdowns.
The Rams are thin at wide receiver after the free agent departure of Brandon Lloyd, although slot receiver Danny Amendola is expected back from a dislocated right elbow sustained in the opener.
