DENVER (AP) -- The Denver Broncos have added their second 300-pound-plus lineman of the week, acquiring defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy from the St. Louis Rams in exchange for an undisclosed 2008 draft pick.

The 320-pound Kennedy spent the last four seasons with the Rams, who picked him 12th overall in the 2003 draft.

The Broncos signed 345-pound defensive tackle Sam Adams on Monday. He's a three-time Pro Bowl player who spent last season with Cincinnati.

In 53 career regular-season games, Kennedy has 149 tackles -- 76 of them solo -- plus four sacks for 19 yards, five pass breakups, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

He has 30 career starts, including all 16 games with the Rams last year, when he had a career-best 55 tackles -- 32 of them solo.

The Broncos waived first-year cornerback Eric Hill to make room for Kennedy on the roster.
