Rams trade RB Leonard to Bengals

St Louis Post-Dispatch - [Full Article]

RB Brian Leonard’s agent, Mike McCartney confirmed that the deal had been finalized. “This is a great trade for Brian,” McCartney said. “I give the Rams credit for putting him in a great situation, with a great QB in Carson Palmer, where he can be a RB. They’re going to put him in the nickel (package) right away.” Later in the afternoon, the Rams formally announced the trade. “This move allows us to add more depth to our defensive line rotation,” coach Steve Spagnuolo said in a statement. After releasing Chris Perry recently, the Bengals don’t have a clear No. 2 RB behind starter Cedric Benson. The Bengals’ offseason roster currently includes Lindenwood University product Dede Dorsey, Kenny Watson and sixth-round draft pick Bernard Scott at RB.
