MEQUON, Wis. (AP) -Second-round pick Donnie Avery signed with the St. Louis Rams on Saturday. The wide receiver was expected on the field for the day's second practice.
Avery, from Houston, was the first wide receiver taken in the draft, and the Rams believed that fact contributed to the brief holdout. He was the last of the Rams' draft picks to sign, with first-rounder Chris Long agreeing to terms a week ago.
Coach Scott Linehan said the contract was completed during the morning workout. Avery was nearby during negotiations, allowing him to make it to camp quickly.
``He'll be here this afternoon, catching up,'' Linehan said. ``Maybe get him a few extra reps, so it's good to get that one out of the way.''
