With rookie minicamp beginning, the Los Angeles Rams announced that they have officially signed 22 undrafted free agents, including former Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick and former Kennesaw State wide receiver Justin Sumpter.
The signings bring the Rams’ roster to 90 players, which is the limit that a team can go into training camp with. So if the Rams make any other signings or acquisitions, a player on the roster would need to be waived to make room for them.
Of the 22 signings, 19 had already been reported. The new ones include Iowa defensive back Jake Gervase, Utah State wide receiver Jalen Greene and Mississippi Valley State defensive tackle Bryant Jones.
Here is the complete list of undrafted free agents that are in camp with the Rams:
WR Alex Bachman, Wake Forest
TE Kendall Blanton, Missouri
OT Chandler Brewer, Middle Tennessee
TE Romello Brooker, Houston
TE Keenan Brown, Texas State
RB Matt Colburn, Wake Forest
DT Marquise Copeland, Cincinnati
DE Landis Durham, Texas A&M
DB Jake Gervase, Iowa
WR Jalen Greene, Utah State
OT Brandon Hitner, Villanova
C Vitas Hrynkiewicz, Youngstown State
DT Bryant Jones, Mississippi Valley State
OT Matt Kaskey, Dartmouth
WR Johnathan Lloyd, Duke
LB Natrez Patrick, Georgia
OT Justice Powers, UAB
LB Troy Reeder, Delaware
DT Boogie Roberts, San Jose State
WR Justin Sumpter, Kennesaw State
DT Tyrell Thompson, Tarleton State
WR Nsimba Webster, Eastern Washington
After the Rams’ offseason signings and draft picks, one area of need that they didn’t really address was linebacker after the departure of Mark Barron. For that reason, players like Patrick and Reeder may have the best opportunity to make the roster if they impress this summer.
Defensive line, especially on the interior, is also an area of need after the expected loss of Ndamukong Suh, who still has not signed with another in free agency but likely will not be returning to the Rams. Los Angeles drafted Greg Gaines out of Washington to help fill that void though.
