The Rams are ready to get training camp up and going, and there will be a new face on the field when they do so. The team has reportedly signed fullback Ovie Mughelli to a one-year deal. Mughelli was a Pro Bowler in 2010 with the Atlanta Falcons, and he has been viewed as one of the elite blocking backs in the league.
I’m a big fan of this move. Upgrading at fullback might not have been at the top of the to-do list, but if he’s healthy Mughelli could be a perfect fit in what appears to be an offensive approach that will feature running the ball prominently.
It’s not a big secret that Steven Jackson loves having a big, bruising fullback leading the way in front of him, so I’m sure nobody likes this move more than him.
