Carthon, son of former Giants running back Maurice Carthon, had worked as a scout for the Atlanta Falcons.

Carthon reunites with current Rams general manager Les Snead, who recently was hired from Atlanta, where he had served as director of player personnel. Carthon was a scout with the Falcons.

The Falcons' front office has seen some shakeups since Snead's departure, including the internal promotions of Dave Caldwell to the position of director of player personnel and DeJuan Polk to the position of director of pro scouting. Former Indianapolis Colts executive Chris Polian joined the Falcons' personnel department last month.

Maurice Carthon played for the Giants from 1985 to 1991, and spent the 1992 season with the Colts.
