ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Rams and outside linebacker Rocky McIntosh, a starter for most of six seasons with the Redskins, have signed a free-agent contract.
The 29-year-old McIntosh could challenge for a starting spot in St. Louis, which has also signed Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Mario Haggan to contracts at the position.
McIntosh was a second-round draft pick in 2006 and played under Gregg Williams, the Rams' defensive coordinator who has been suspended indefinitely for his role in the Saints bounty scandal.
McIntosh worked out for the Rams on Wednesday and coach Jeff Fisher said the player's familiarity with the defensive system is a major plus.
