Rams add FB Ovie Mughelli to the mix

The St. Louis Rams have added a blocking back that’s paved the way for plenty of yards in the past.

Perhaps he’ll be a good addition for Steven Jackson. Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Rams have signed Ovie Mughelli, a Pro Bowl performer in 2010, to a one-year contract.

The Falcons cut Mughelli loose earlier this offseason and he made a visit to the Rams. Now, he’s in the mix for a roster spot. It’s important for fullbacks to get their chances early because some teams are not carrying a player at the position anymore making it a tough position to crack.
