The St. Louis were looking to add some size to their offensive line, and may have just signed the biggest player in NFL history.
The Rams and coach Jeff Fisher just signed 6’10” 403 pound Terrell Brown out of Ole Miss. played sparingly with the Rebels during his three-year Ole Miss career. Brown played just two games in 2012 at offensive tackle and eight games in 2011 as a defensive tackle.
Brown was reportedly signed as a defensive tackle by the Rams, but according to Pro Football Talk, Jeff Fisher immediately switch him to offensive line.
“Actually, we weighed him in at 403,” Fisher told reporters today. “We had him in for the tryout and he had some issues that we had to clear up from a physical standpoint. But he got that put behind us. We worked him out on both sides of the ball, defensive line and offensive line, and we felt like his best position would be right tackle. [Rams offensive line coach Paul Boudreau] said he’d love to have him. He’s a defensive lineman that we’ve converted to offensive lineman.”
Brown’s pro day measurable’s were not really that impressive, and that probably what prevented him from getting drafted.
Brown ran a 5.77-second 40-yard dash with a 5.44-second 20-yard shuttle and 8.93-second three-cone drill.
