Almost out of football, former first round pick of St. Louis, gets another chance to make it in the NFL.
The Seattle Seahawks signed former St. Louis Rams first-round offensive tackle Alex Barron following a successful minicamp tryout.
A former No. 19 overall pick in 2005 from Florida State, Barron started 74 of 76 games with St. Louis.
For tackle Alex Barron, the trade that brought him from the St. Louis Rams to the Dallas Cowboys represented a chance to reach goals that eluded him through the first five seasons of his professional career.
