Rams sign 403-pound lineman

The St. Louis Rams signed 403-pound undrafted rookie offensive lineman Terrell Brown this week.

When the Rams brought Brown in for a workout, they thought he was 388 pounds. It turns out the 6-foot-10 tackle had recently put on 15 pounds.

"Actually, we weighed him in at 403," Rams coach Jeff Fisher told reporters Thursday.

Brown played sparingly at offensive tackle and on the defensive line at Mississippi.

"We had him in for the tryout, and he had some issues that we had to clear up from a physical standpoint," Fisher said. "But he got that put behind us. We worked him out on both sides of the ball -- defensive line, offensive line -- and we felt like his best position would be right tackle.

Brown played mostly on defensive line in college but the Rams plan to convert him into an offensive lineman.

Brown is considered a long shot to make the 53-man roster.
