Rams trade Leonard to Bengals

I know this isn't huge news but is moreso for Unity and Vegito as they are Rams fans.
Rams acquired DT Orien Harris from the Bengals in exchange for FB/RB Brian Leonard.

Pittsburgh's 2006 fourth-round pick, Harris has bounced around the league. He does have some interior pass-rush ability, but isn't guaranteed a roster spot. Harris will compete with rookie Dorell Scott for snaps inside.
Bengals acquired FB/RB Brian Leonard from the Rams in exchange for DT Orien Harris.

A no-frills runner when healthy, Leonard showed promise as a rookie in 2007 but has since battled chronic shoulder woes. He only played fullback last year. Leonard will compete as a hybrid player and isn't a threat to Cedric Benson. He does have some third-down value, but lacks breakaway speed
Can't say I'm that surprised...with Karney around Leonard was expendable. Also, he wasnt going to be a RB with Pittman and Darby around.
