ST. LOUIS (AP) -The St. Louis Rams filled a pressing offseason need Monday night, signing free agent guard Jacob Bell to a six-year contract.
The 6-foot-4, 295-pound Bell played for the Titans the last four seasons after being a fourth-round draft pick of the Titans in 2004. He started all 16 games at left guard last season and has made 46 career starts and played in 55 games in four seasons.
The Rams finished the year with three offensive line starters on injured reserve, a major reason for the team's offensive struggles in a 3-13 season. The Rams totaled 263 points, the franchise's lowest total since 1993.
Seven-time Pro Bowl tackle Orlando Pace was lost for the season with a torn labrum and torn rotator cuff sustained in the season opener, and Mark Setterstrom and Richie Incognito were sidelined with knee injuries.
Much of the season, the team filled in with retreads. A top backup, Todd Steussie, couldn't be plugged into the lineup until late in the season after breaking his foot in the preseason.
There's uncertainty surrounding Pace, who has finished the last two seasons on injured reserve.
