The Bears have traded safety Kevin Payne to the St. Louis Rams for a 2010 draft pick, the team announced.

Originally a fifth-round pick of the Bears, Payne started 22 of 32 games played over three seasons, recording 195 tackles, four interceptions, 10 passes defended and one sack.

Payne was made expendable after the Bears traded for Chris Harris on Tuesday.

UPDATE: Bears would get a seventh round pick, if Payne makes the Rams roster.
