Rams, as expected, add McGrorty to practice squad
Former Southern Oregon running back Dusty McGrorty has been signed to the St. Louis Rams' practice squad, as expected.
The team had told the Warrenton native he would be cut after the final preseason game, then re-signed once he cleared waivers, and it followed through Monday, according to the team's Web site.
McGrorty will make about half of the &
36;230,000 for which he originally signed.
McGrorty shattered 10 school or Northwest small-college records and compiled 5,414 rushing yards and 79 touchdowns during his Raider career.
