The Rams re-signed punter Sean Landeta on Wednesday and expect to sign free-agent wide receiver Greg McMurtry in the next few days. The team retained Landeta by exercising its right of first refusal, matching an offer by the Detroit Lions. McMurtry, who played at New England last season, is expected to sign by the end of the week, said Jay Zygmunt, the team's senior vice president.

Reports from New York indicated that punter Sean Landeta, who was released by the Giants this week, was on his way to Anaheim to meet and possibly sign with the Rams today. Landeta, 31, who underwent reconstructive knee surgery last November, had slipped from his career mark of 43.3 yards per punt to 42.1 yards this season. He reportedly tried out Thursday for the Miami Dolphins but left without a contract.

Even Sean Landeta cannot do this at will--take a football, kick it while a bunch of guys rush at him and then watch it settle inside the five-yard line, with the aid of a bounce or a teammate. But he does have a pretty good idea of how to get it done, as witnesses Sunday at Anaheim Stadium can attest. As the second half of the Rams' 31-7 loss to the New York Giants wore on, the Rams were hoping for some decent field position. Landeta was most uncooperative.

The Miami Dolphins took a look at punter Sean Landeta and chose not to sign him Thursday, but Friday the Rams gave him a one-year contract without a tryout. "We've seen him kick . . . we know what he can do," Coach Chuck Knox said. "He's been doing it for a number of years, and we've been looking for more consistency." The Rams released punter Paul McJulien, who ranked last in the league with a 37.9-yard average. Landeta, who was released earlier in the week by the New York Giants, averaged 42.
