It looks as if Ed Nelson, the somewhat unused muscle at the end of Jim Calhoun’s UCONN bench has been playing the wrong sport all these years. After starting out at Georgia Tech and showing some promise as a basketball player, then transferring to UCONN where he became 5 expendable fouls, Ed Nelson has signed a 2 year contract with the St. Louis Rams. He is aware that he probably won’t make the regular season roster, but hopes to make the practice squad to continue to develop his skills. This makes the 3rd TE the Rams have picked up this weekend after taking Joe Klopfenstein and Dominque Byrd in the draft.
