RB Brian Leonardâ€™s agent, Mike McCartney confirmed that the deal had been finalized. â€œThis is a great trade for Brian,â€ McCartney said. â€œI give the Rams credit for putting him in a great situation, with a great QB in Carson Palmer, where he can be a RB. Theyâ€™re going to put him in the nickel (package) right away.â€ Later in the afternoon, the Rams formally announced the trade. â€œThis move allows us to add more depth to our defensive line rotation,â€ coach Steve Spagnuolo said in a statement. After releasing Chris Perry recently, the Bengals donâ€™t have a clear No. 2 RB behind starter Cedric Benson. The Bengalsâ€™ offseason roster currently includes Lindenwood University product Dede Dorsey, Kenny Watson and sixth-round draft pick Bernard Scott at RB.
