The Rams will sign veteran CB Al Harris and released OG Jacob Bell. The National Football Post reported and Harris' agent, Jack Bechta, confirmed on Twitter that Harris would be joining the Rams, while Pro Football Talk first reported that Bell was to be released.

Harris, 36, played in three games with the Dolphins last season after being released by the Packers. Harris suffered a knee injury that put him on the physically-unable-to-perform list to start the season. He has 21 career interceptions.

Bell, who started every game last season, was due a base salary of $6 million in 2011, according to Pro Football Talk, and the two sides could not agree on restructuring the deal.

The Rams also announced the re-signing of restricted free agents LB Chris Chamberlain, OG John Greco, OT Renardo Foster and LB David Vobora. The team re-signed exclusive rights free agents WR Danny Amendola and DE C.J. Ah You.

The team has signed seven of its draft picks: second-round TE Lance Kendricks, third-round WR Austin Pettis, fourth-round WR Greg Salas, fifth-round S Jermale Hines, seventh-round CB Mikali Baker, seventh-round LB Jabar Williams and seventh-round S Jonathan Nelson.

The way we see it

Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo loves physical, press corners like Harris, who was one of the better ones before his injury. He will likely be the third corner. The team signed Harvey Dahl, making Bell expendable.
