    I was wrong, or my title was wrong for quoting Balzer when he wasn't sure. I take responsibility, though/

    Damn. Someone's going to pick him up; if he manages to get to our practice squad, there are thirty-one other teams that should be ashamed of themselves.

    Agreed. But I'm DE greedy. Glady have him on the team to continue to learn from Quinn and Long. He's not going to get mentors like that anywhere else in the league.

      So Rams keep only 9 defensive linemen and Ethan Westbrooks is one of them.

      Rams have now officially announced their roster moves. Sam is among the listed cuts. The one missing cut was safety Christian Bryant.

    We should sign him to the practice squad if he's there, after clearing waivers..But he simply was not better than Westbrooks....

    Was outplayed by Westbrooks, liked him, but no great loss. Did any of our 7th round picks make it?

    Kind of sad. The kid did everything he needed to do and still didn't make the roster. Since he was cut we can't trade him, so then what really was the purpose of using a draft pick on him?

    A 7th round pick on last year's SEC co-defensive player of the year? Low risk.

    And probably would have made the 53 if UDFA, Westbrooks wouldn't have played better than him.

    How come you're not asking this question about the other 7th round draft picks we cut today?

    In the end, if he somehow makes it to our PS, he has a shot at making it to the 53 at some point. He's a talented player, he was worth the draft pick.
