ST. LOUIS (AP) -St. Louis Rams' first-round draft pick Adam Carriker was expected to be on the practice field Friday, hours after agreeing to a five-year contract.
Terms were not disclosed. Rams spokesman Rick Smith said the deal was reached early Friday, before the first workout of training camp.
Also expected at practice was quarterback Marc Bulger, who was a no-show for a mandatory team meeting Thursday, when players were to report. Bulger is signed through next season but is seeking a new contract and had threatened to hold out.
Smith said the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback arrived at camp early Friday. He said Bulger's agent and the Rams continue to discuss a contract extension.
Carriker played defensive end at Nebraska, where he was the Big 12 defensive lineman of the year as a senior, leading the Cornhuskers with seven sacks. He is expected to move to defensive tackle for the Rams, who have struggled in recent years at that position.
