Dan Wetzel:

Rams sign former first-rounder Gholston

The SportsXchange

The Rams signed former first-round pick Vernon Gholston to a one-year deal.

Gholston was the sixth overall pick in the 2008 draft but the Ohio State product didn't make the transition from college defensive end to 3-4 rush linebacker with the Jets. He was released after three seasons and never recorded a sack in a regular-season game.

Gholston was signed after working out for the Rams along with former Patriots defensive end Andre Carter. Carter isn't yet recovered from a torn quadriceps that ended his 2011 season with the Patriots in December.

Gholston was out of the NFL last season. He was released by the Bears on Aug. 29, 2011.
