WR Drew Bennett signs long-term deal with St.Louis.

Former Titan wide receiver, Drew Bennett, and the St.Louis Rams agreed to a 6-year $30 million deal Saturday. The deal comes just days after the Rams lost two receivers, Kevin Curtis and Shaun McDonald, to free-agency. The deal also is a clear sign that long time Ram, Isaac Bruce may be on his last year in St.Louis.

Drew Bennett is a very explosive receiver that has great size and good hands, he has great speed and will give the Rams one more down-field threat.

Bennett's best season was in 2004, when he had personal bests with 80 receptions, 1,247 yards and 11 touchdowns and started all 16 games. Eight of the touchdowns came in three games, tying a record set by someone you may have heard of, a guy by the name of Jerry Rice.

According to sources, Bennett's deal includes $10 million in guaranteed money. It will pay him a total of $9.5 million over the first year of the contract.
