Rams sign 5th round draft pick Foster

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have signed their fifth-round draft pick, wide receiver pick Brooks Foster.

Terms of the deal with the 160th overall selection were not disclosed.

Foster had 97 catches for 1,237 yards and six touchdowns during his career at North Carolina. He started 7 of 13 games last season and was second on the team with 30 catches for 334 yards and two scores.

Foster becomes the second member of the 2009 draft class to sign. Third-round selection Bradley Fletcher, a cornerback from Iowa, signed a 4-year contract on Friday.

Five draft picks remain unsigned, including the No. 2 overall pick, offensive tackle Jason Smith, and the Rams' second-round pick, linebacker James Laurinaitis.

Training camp opens July 30.
