Rams sign former first-round pick Gholston
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams have signed defensive end Vernon Gholston, the sixth overall pick in the 2008 draft but so far a bust in the NFL.
The Rams announced the signing Wednesday night on their Twitter feed. The team also brought in Andre Carter for a workout.
Gholston had no sacks in three seasons with the New York Jets, who tried to convert him to an outside linebacker. He did not play last season after getting released by the Chicago Bears in late August.
St. Louis had a roster spot open after trading cornerback Josh Gordy, who was traded to the Colts for a draft pick Tuesday.
