The St. Louis Rams shook up their roster a tad today, making a couple of moves that were first reported by Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Earlier today, the Rams signed offensive lineman Mark LeVoir to give the team some depth as starting right tackle Jason Smith battles concussion symptoms. They released linebacker Jabara Williams in order to free up space on the active roster for LeVoir.
LeVoir, 29, began this season with the Baltimore Ravens but was released by the team last week. He's played in 35 games since joining the NFL in 2007, including two starts with the New England Patriots in 2008 and another start with the Ravens in Week 4 of this season. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame.
Williams, the Rams' seventh-round pick from earlier this year, played special teams with St. Louis the past two weeks after being inactive for the first quarter of the season. Drafted out of Stephen F. Austin, he was never viewed as a potential starter in St. Louis.
