ANOTHER D-lineman?!?

June 8, 2007

The Denver Broncos have traded St. Louis a sixth-round draft pick in next year’s draft for St. Louis’ former first-round choice Jimmy Kennedy.

Kennedy is 6’4″ and 325lbs. He is a former Penn State star whom the Rams had hoped would solidify the interior of their defensive line. Over the past two seasons, though, the Rams had issues with Kennedy not complying with their defensive scheme (they wanted a runstopper — he wanted to get sacks).

Last year Kennedy started all 16 games for the first time in his career and recorded a personal-best 55 tackles (32 solo). The defensive tackle also had one sack (5 yds.), two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble and one pass breakup in 2006.

Kennedy joins 16 other D-linemen already on the roster including recently signed Sam Adams.

To free up this roster spot Denver released first-year CB Eric Hill.
