St. Louis Rams Sign Vernon Gholston

The St. Louis Rams announced on Wednesday that they have signed defensive end Vernon Gholston to a contract.

Gholston was drafted by the New York Jets out of Ohio with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft. He ranks fifth in Buckeyes history with 21.5 sacks and was widely regarded as one of the top talents in the 2008 draft class after being named Big Ten defensive lineman of the year in 2007.

After three unproductive years, though, Gholston was released by New York. He never recorded a sack as a member of the Jets. The Chicago Bears signed him in July 2011, only to release him a month later.

Gholston takes cornerback Josh Gordy's spot on the roster. Gordy was traded to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for a draft pick.
