The Rams added depth to their offensive line with the signing of veteran C Hank Fraley, who was recently released by the Browns. Fraley’s agent, Ralph Cindrich, announced the signing on Twitter. Fraley has played center for most of his 10-year career but also can play guard. He was a starter for the Browns from 2006-08 but made only four starts for Cleveland in '09. Fraley previously played six seasons for the Eagles.
Fraley will presumably be the primary backup at center behind 2009 free-agent addition Jason Brown, who has become the anchor of the Rams’ O-line in relatively short order. At the end of the season Brown was being backed up by Mark Setterstrom, a restricted free agent who did not receive a tender offer from the Rams.
