Rams release Porter Gaud grad Mughelli

ST. LOUIS, MO (WCIV) - On the day known as "Black Friday" in the NFL for the roster cut downs, one Lowcountry native is feeling the effects of it.{}

Porter Gaud grad and NFL veteran Ovie Mughelli was released by the St. Louis Rams.{}

The former Falcons pro bowler was released earlier in the year by Atlanta in a cost-cutting measure, but was picked up just prior to preseason camp by the Rams.{}

Mughelli said on his twitter account today, "Rams released me today. I had a great time in St. Louis but evidently it's not in god's plan for me.{} The positive thing is that every team in the league knows there is a great fullback out there ready to help a team win. I'm still blessed."{}
