The St. Louis Rams have re-signed free agent TE Lance Kendricks, the team announced today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Kendricks is entering his fifth season with the Rams after the team selected him in the second round of the 2011 draft. Last season, he scored a career-high five touchdowns to lead all St. Louis pass catchers and finished the year with 27 receptions for 259 yards.
Since entering the NFL, Kendricks has appeared in 62 games (51 starts) and registered 129 catches for 1,388 yards and 13 touchdowns. He is fifth in team history among tight ends for most touchdown catches and is five shy of tying franchise leader Damone Johnson (1986-92). Kendricks set career highs in receptions (42) and receiving yards (519) during his sophomore campaign in 2012. At the time, his 519 receiving yards were the most by a Rams tight end since the team moved to St. Louis in 1995.
The Milwaukee, Wisc. native attended the University of Wisconsin where he started 17 of 30 games and caught 62 passes for 914 yards.
