Rocky McIntosh, a free agent who has spent his career with the Washington Redskins, worked out Wednesday for the St. Louis Rams, a team with a need at outside linebacker, and signed with them Thursday.

McIntosh worked out for Coach Jeff Fisher in the morning and participated in individual drills in the afternoon minicamp practice, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

McIntosh, 29, played six seasons for the Redskins, starting from 2007-’10. He was a second-round draft pick by the team in 2006. He was replaced in midseason last year by Perry Riley.

McIntosh also visited Minnesota and Miami, but might stand the best chance at a starting job in St. Louis.
