Offensive lineman Davin Joseph signed with the St. Louis Rams on Wednesday, the team announced through its Twitter account.

The 30-year-old two-time Pro Bowler had spent his entire career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after being drafted No. 23 overall in the 2006 draft. Joseph made the Pro Bowl in 2011 but missed all of 2012 after injuring his knee during a preseason game against the Patriots, and he had a disappointing year last season. The Bucs failed to complete a trade during the season and ultimately released him in March.

With the Rams, Joseph should provide insurance for Jake Long should he suffer a setback from his ACL surgery. If Long does go down, Rodger Saffold could have to kick outside for him or right tackle Joe Barksdale, which would pave the way for a shot at a starting job for Joseph.
