The Los Angeles Rams joined teams in making a series of cuts to get just a bit closer to their final roster number on Monday afternoon.
The Rams announced that they waived six players just after 3 p.m. ET on Monday. The team revealed that it had let go of three defensive backs and three offensive players ahead of Tuesday’s 53-man deadline.
The most notable of the Rams transactions was waiving Troy Warner, the younger brother of San Fransisco 49ers standout linebacker Fred Warner. The undrafted rookie out of BYU played well in LA’s three preseason games, but ultimately didn’t do enough to warrant a spot on the final roster.
Warner joined defensive back Brontae Harris, wide receiver Jeremiah Haydel, guard Jeremiah Kolone, guard Jordan Meredith, and defensive back Donovan Olumba as the other players that the Rams waived Monday.
LA Rams transactions:
• Waived DB Brontae Harris
• Waived WR Jeremiah Haydel
• Waived G Jeremiah Kolone
• Waived G Jordan Meredith
• Waived DB Donovan Olumba
• Waived DB Troy Warner
