Rams snag Mikell

Quintin Mikell has agreed to terms with St. Louis Rams on a four-year deal, espn.com reported today.

The former Eagles safety was an unrestricted free agent. Earlier in the day, The Inquirer learned that the Eagles were not going to pursue Mikell or any of their free agents.

Mikell had no comment when reached before his deal with the Rams was reported, but he did tweet the following:

"I want to thank all of my fans for the awesome support," Mikell wrote. "It's been great playing for Philly. But it's time to move on. Hopefully, I will continue to have your support as I move on. I'm very excited for the chance to play with a very dangerous and up and coming team. I'm a Ram now. Let's get it CRACKIN!!"

Mikell won't have to wait long to enact revenge on his old team. The Rams host the Eagles in the season opener on Sept. 11. The veteran safety will also be reuinted with former Eagles linebackers coach and current Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo.
