|CB Fletcher Impressing Rams, So Far
|EARTH CITY, Mo. (AP) -- New St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher admits he is not that familiar with veteran cornerback Bradley Fletcher.
But he likes what he has seen so far.
Fletcher's problem has been staying on the field.
After playing all 16 games for the Rams in 2010 and making 65 solo tackles and four interceptions, he appeared in just four games in 2011 before tearing his right ACL for the second time in three seasons.
That prompted the Rams (No. 28 in AP Pro32) to add depth at the position during the offseason, signing free agent corner Cortland Finnegan, who played for Fisher at Tennessee, and drafting cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins in the second round and Trumaine Johnson in the third.
Fletcher welcomes the competition.
