NFL: Rams sign defensive tackle Thomas


Associated Press

ST. LOUIS Defensive tackle Hollis Thomas has signed with the St. Louis Rams after being released by the Saints in April.

The 35-year-old free agent is a 13-year veteran and played the last three seasons with New Orleans. He spent his first 10 seasons with the Eagles after signing as an undrafted free agent in 1996, and has started 123 of 162 career games with 20 sacks.
Thomas missed the first half of last season after hurting a triceps muscle in training camp. He was released in September with an injury settlement and re-signed in November, totaling 10 tackles in the final eight games.
The Rams also waived defensive linemen Kirston Pittman and Willie Williams on Wednesday, along with wide receivers Travis Brown and Horace Gant.
