Last season, Sullivan served as a backup in Washington, where new Rams head coach Sean McVay served as the offensive coordinator.
Sullivan missed the 2015 season with back injuries, but he started 93 games with Minnesota. The 32-year-old center played with the Minnesota Vikings from 2009 to ’14.
The Rams are moving Greg Robinson to right tackle, while last year’s starting right tackle Rob Havenstein will move to right guard. Thus, Sullivan could start at center since last year’s starter Tim Barnes was released in March.
Otherwise, L.A. also added outside linebacker Carlos Thompson this week. Thompson, 25, has played two games with the Houston Texans after being signed as an undrafted free agent in 2015. Houston waived Thompson in August of 2016.
The 6-foot-5, 243-pound Thompson is a hybrid rusher that fits under Wade Phillips’ 3-4 scheme. Los Angeles is converting their defense from a base 4-3, so Thompson could be a quality depth piece.
Stay tuned to see if the Rams add any more pieces before the NFL Draft begins April 28th.
