Rams waived K Sam Ficken.

It would normally be an indication that Greg Zuerlein (groin) is ready to return, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that is not the case. Another veteran will apparently be signed to continue filling in. Ficken converted just 1-of-3 field goal attempts in two games in place of Zuerlein.

Rams waived QB Brandon Allen.

The Super Bowl-or-bust Rams could no longer justify carrying three quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. They will go forward with Sean Mannion behind Jared Goff. As's Tom Pelissero points out, Allen was claimed by three separate teams when the Jaguars waived him in 2017.

Rams COO Kevin Demoff said the team offered the Raiders an "aggressive package" for Khalil Mack before Oakland traded him to the Bears.

The Rams are working wonders with the salary cap this offseason, and if they'd have landed Mack, we're not sure this team could be stopped. It's fun to think about, but obviously didn't happen. Demoff said the Raiders turned down the Rams' offer because Oakland thought the Rams' picks would be too low in the order. For all the acquisitions and contracts the Rams have handed out this year, they still have a ton of cap room in 2019 and beyond. Edge rusher is truly the only real weakness on this roster, but they make up for it with Aaron Donald and the secondary.

Rams waived TE Temarrick Hemingway, DB Dominique Hatfield, WR Khadarel Hodge, TE Henry Krieger-Coble, WR Steven Mitchell, DB Steven Parker, QB Luis Perez, LB Ejuan Price, DB Ramon Richards, and RB Larry Rose.

Hemingway was a 2016 sixth-rounder but never was able to find the field.
Sep 1 - 4:26 PM

Rams released OT Cornelius Lucas.

Lucas was hoping to make the team as a backup tackle but the Rams are going in another direction. Standing at a hulking 6'9" and 328 pounds, the five-year vet has appeared in just six games (one start) over his last two seasons.

The Rams won't sign free agent OLB Junior Galette.

"It just didn't work out, for reasons that we will keep inside," coach Sean McVay said. Galette visited with the club and took a (successful) physical but never worked out. He also visited the Seahawks Tuesday but has yet to receive an offer.
Aug 21 - 7:26 PM

Free agent OLB Junior Galette will visit the Rams on Sunday.

It's the first interest in Galette since he met with the Raiders in April. Galette returned after a two-year layoff last season, posting three sacks over 407 snaps. He would be rotational depth for the Rams.
Aug 18 - 2:19 PM

Rams waived FB Sam Rogers.

The Rams also cut RB Lenard Tillery and signed DT Dalton Keene and S Charles Williams. A sixth-round pick last year, Rogers spent his rookie season on the Rams' practice squad.
May 15 - 12:50 PM

Cowboys acquired Tavon Austin from the Rams in exchange for the No. 192 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

The gadget player goes from one of the most crowded receiver corps in the league to arguably the least. The overpaid former first-round bust couldn't find a role in Sean McVay's resurgent 2017 offense but that shouldn't be an issue in Dallas. The Cowboys need bodies at wideout. Austin can still resemble a game-breaker on film but rarely on the actual field. For his career he's averaged a running back-like 8.7 yards per catch. He was used more as a runner than receiver in 2017. Even if a bigger role materializes, Austin is unlikely to have 2018 fantasy value.

Free agent OLB Connor Barwin will visit the Cardinals this week.

Last month, Rams GM Les Snead said the team was attempting to re-sign Barwin, but nothing has happened to this point. Barwin recorded five sacks across 656 snaps last season.
Apr 9 - 10:29 AM

The Rams could re-sign CB Kayvon Webster.

Webster's release was a cap move, saving the Rams $3.5 million. He's played under DC Wade Phillips the last three years and remains a strong scheme fit. Webster should eventually be brought back at a lower salary.
Apr 6 - 6:54 PM

Rams released CB Kayvon Webster.

The move saves Los Angeles approximately $3.5 million in cap space, which the Rams needed after Ndamukong Suh's deal put them over the salary cap. Webster became expendable this offseason when the Rams acquired Marcus Peters from Kansas City and Aqib Talib from Denver. The 27-year-old is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles he suffered late last season. The Rams could be open to bringing Webster back at a lower cost when healthy.

MMQB's Peter King reports the Giants' "likely" asking price for Odell Beckham is two first-round picks.

King also believes a pre-trade contract agreement paying Beckham more than $18 million per year would be required for any trade to come to fruition. King is convinced the Rams are currently the NFL's most interested team in Beckham and would stay involved in trade talks for as long as they go on. ESPN's Adam Schefter has also indicated he believes the Giants' interest in trading OBJ is genuine.

The Boston Sports Journal's Greg Bedard passes along word from a "Bill Belichick-friendly source" that the longer Rob Gronkowski goes without committing to the team, the chances of the Patriots trading him increase.

This is pure speculation, but it isn't the first time we've seen it, as MMQB's Albert Breer hinted at it as well in a piece on Thursday. Both Breer and Bedard are ex-Patriots beat writers with plenty of connections to the team. Gronkowski has yet to inform the Patriots of his 2018 plans, and some think Belichick could use that as fuel to trade the star tight end, who may be tiring of playing at a massive discount in New England. Bedard mentions the 49ers and Rams as suitors should Gronkowski become available. 29-year-old (in May) Gronk is the fourth-highest-paid tight end at $9 million per year and has two years left on his deal.

The New York Daily News' Gary Myers reports Odell Beckham "has told a couple of Rams players he wants in."

The Rams also clearly want to acquire Beckham and reportedly have put the No. 23 pick on the table. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Giants are looking for "at least two first-round picks," however, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Giants would have to be "blown away." That asking price could change if Beckham says he will not sign an extension, but right now it is unclear if the Rams are willing to give up a king's ransom while also agreeing to Beckham's lofty contract demands. It seems absurd for the Giants to trade Beckham, but there is enough smoke around this story to take it seriously.
Mar 29 - 9:38 AM

The New York Daily News reports the Rams are interested in trading for Odell Beckham.

The Daily News also reports the Giants' asking price is a first-round pick "plus." The "plus" would seem to indicate a deal could get done without multiple first-rounders. Newsday reported earlier Monday the Giants prefer to keep Beckham to trading him but it's beginning to appear the trade talk isn't purely smoke. Absent a truly landslide haul — which already appears off the table — the Giants will lose any Beckham trade.
Mar 26 - 4:19 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Rams "appear to be the front-runner" for Ndamukong Suh.

That appeared to be the case once the Jets bowed out of the sweepstakes, but Rapoport adds the Titans and Saints are still in the running. Suh was cut by the Dolphins two weeks ago.
Mar 26 - 8:41 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports it's "less than a sure thing" free agent Ndamukong Suh signs with the Jets.

The Jets have emerged as one of the top landing spots for Suh. The Rams still look to be the favorites, but the Jets have the most cap space and made Suh the largest offer. New Orleans and Tennessee also remain in the mix.
Mar 23 - 5:25 PM

Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz reports free agent Ndamukong Suh is "intrigued" by the idea of playing on the Rams' defensive line alongside Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers.

ESPN Rams reporter Alden Gonzalez adds that Suh remains in Los Angeles Tuesday evening and is scheduled to have dinner with the Rams tonight. He's expected to visit the Raiders on Wednesday if he makes it out of L.A. without a contract. Schultz also reports Suh "likes" Saints DE Cameron Jordan and wouldn't be opposed to playing alongside him in New Orleans. If Suh wants to win, it would seem the Rams and Saints are his top two suitors to this point.
Mar 20 - 9:59 PM

Free agent RB Mike Davis is visiting the Rams on Monday.

Despite a fairly successful run as a starter late in the season, the Seahawks declined to tender Davis as a restricted free agent, allowing him to test the market. He would compete for a backup job with the Rams.
