Top pick Barron signs five-year deal

Thursday, August 11, 2005

The St. Louis Rams have signed offensive tackle Alex Barron, their top draft choice, to a five-year deal, the team announced Wednesday.

As a senior at Florida State, Barron was one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy, which recognizes the country's top collegiate offensive lineman.

Rams coach Mike Martz told KSDK-TV that he does not expect Barron to be a starter by the beginning of the season.
