Isaac Bruce Traded To St. Louis, Plans To Retire As A Ram

Wide receiver Isaac Bruce has been traded to the St. Louis Rams today, according to several sources. 

Not so that he can relive the "Greatest Show on Turf" days, however, but so he can retire with the team for which he began his should-be Hall of Fame career.

VanRam of the Turf Show Times, SB Nation's Rams' blog, gave a quick synopsis of Bruce's career Monday afternoon.

A second round pick in 1994, Bruce was with the Rams through good times and bad, moving from LA to STL, before the cold hard facts of business put him out there as a free agent for the hated 49ers to sign. In hindsight, that wasn't such a great move for a team that could have used the receiving help in the two seasons since parting ways.

It's a classy move by an organization that took some heat, mostly undeserved, for its handling of history.

Bruce finishes his career among the all-time top 10 for receptions (1,024 -- 5th all-time), receiving yards (15,208 -- 2nd) and TD catches (91-- 9th).
