The Rams have added another linebacker, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with former Vikings LB Ben Leber. ESPN's John Clayton first reported the move. Leber picked St. Louis over Seattle, one of the Rams' division rivals.

Leber, who was one of the plaintiffs this summer in the Brady antitrust suit, has played in all 16 games in each of the past four seasons. He recorded 35 tackles, four passes defensed and one interception last season, but it was Leber's only season without a sack.

The 10-year veteran has 24 career sacks and five career interceptions. The Rams also signed ex-Texans LB Zac Diles and ex-Packers LB Brady Poppinga this offseason.
