Ben Leber, one of the best players available, picked the Rams over the Seahawks and other teams on a one-year deal.— John Clayton (@ClaytonESPN) August 9, 2011
Former Viking linebacker Ben Leber has found a new home in St. Louis. He signed a one-year deal with the Rams worth $1.25 million. Leber was a very solid cog of the Vikings defense for the past five seasons, playing in all but one game during his tenure in Minnesota. He never racked up a ton of stats, but he seemed to have a knack for making big plays. His consistency won't be easy to replace, even though LB is one position where the Vikings are fairly deep. Best of luck to Mr. Leber with his new team. I'm really going to miss making those cheesy "Leber 2000 is really cleaning up!" jokes about him in the game threads.
