Rams sign veteran offensive lineman

 ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams added depth to the offensive line, signing veteran center Hank Fraley.

The 32-year-old Fraley, a 10-year veteran, was released earlier this month by the Cleveland Browns and landed with the Rams on Tuesday. Fraley made 52 starts in 63 games with Cleveland and had been due a roster bonus.

The 6-3, 310-pound Fraley spent his first six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles while Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur were with that franchise. Shurmur was Fraley's position coach in 2000 and 2001.

Fraley has made 123 career starts and has started 10 postseason games, including a Super Bowl with the Eagles. He has been primarily a center but also has started at guard and played at right tackle early in his career.
