Skins trade rookie TE-FB to the Rams

Jason Reid from the Washington Post is reporting that the Skins have moved rookie TE-FB Dennis Morris to the Rams:

The Redskins traded rookie tight end-fullback Dennis Morris to the St. Louis Rams, a person familiar with the situation said Monday.

The trade actually occurred Sunday, according to the league source who said he was unaware of what the Redskins received in exchange for Morris. Washington selected Morris in the sixth round (174th overall) of the 2010 draft.

A standout at Louisiana Tech, Morris, listed at 6-feet-2, 253 pounds, did not impress during training camp and the preseason.

The trade was conditional and the Redskins are taking a look at former Rams’ linebacker Hall Davis. Davis, who stands 6-foot-4, 273 pounds is a rookie out of Louisiana-Lafeyette. The Rams listed him as a defensive end, though Shanahan identified him as a linebacker.

“We’ll get a chance to look at him over the next couple of days,” Shanahan said.

Asked why the team parted ways with Morris, Shanahan said :”He wasn’t going to make our team.”
