Rams sign Ovie Mughelli

Former Atlanta Falcons Pro Bowl fullback Ovie Mughelli has signed a one-year contract with the St. Louis Rams. Mughelli played in only seven games last season due to a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Mughelli was cut in May. He was scheduled to earn $3 million this season prior to being released. Mughelli, 32, visited the Rams and the Miami Dolphins earlier this year.

Mughelli signed a six-year, $18 million contract with the Falcons in 2007 that included a $5 million signing bonus. He started 38 games for Atlanta in five seasons.

Mughelli injured his right knee during a collision with safety Louis Delmas during a win over the Detroit Lions and was placed on injured reserve. The Falcons drafted Wisconsin fullback Bradie Ewing as Mughelli's replacement in the fifth round.
