Rams sign Fairley, try to explain Bradford deal

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams agreed to terms with defensive tackle Nick Fairley on a one-year free agent deal, bringing in Fairley to a news conference as a brief surprise before introducing new quarterback Nick Foles.

Fairley went back upstairs at Rams Park to sign contract papers while Fisher, general manager Les Snead and Foles met the media.

The coach and GM spent much of the news conference trying to explain why Sam Bradford had become expendable. Fisher said Bradford would probably not have been back even if he'd agreed to a pay cut.

At every news conference since the season ended, Fisher had said Bradford would be his quarterback next season.

Fairley fills an opening in the defensive line rotation after the Rams released tackle Kendall Langford.
