The St. Louis Rams and head coach Jeff Fisher put former Washington Redskins outside linebacker Rocky McIntosh through a workout and a minicamp tryout on Wednesday, and on Thursday morning Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the Rams would like sign McIntosh "relatively quickly." The 29-year-old was originally drafted in the second-round (No. 35 overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft, and over six season with Washington he has recorded 324 tackles, 143 assists, three interceptions, eight sacks and eight forced fumbles. He recently played in a 3-4 scheme during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, and served as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 defense before that time.
As Thomas notes, McIntosh has also made free agent visits with the Minnesota Vikings and Miami Dolphins but the Rams may provide the best opportunity to claim playing time on the defense.
