Incognito no longer: Rams sign final pick

ST. LOUIS (Sept. 29, 2005) -- Three weeks into the season and more than five months after the draft, Richie Incognito became the last player picked to sign when he agreed to a four-year contract with the St. Louis Rams.

The offensive guard was the second of the Rams' two third-round picks, and the 81st overall pick. Incognito had a kneecap injury at the time of the draft, and coach Mike Martz said then he would have been a first-rounder otherwise.

Incognito, an All-Big 12 selection at Nebraska as a sophomore in 2003, missed last season after transferring to Oregon and being suspended. He has been rehabbing from the knee injury during on-and-off negotiations.
