You are going to be hearing a lot about cuts over the next week, so I figured I’d get it all started tonight since the Rams have begun trimming the roster. According to the team, the Rams let go of wide receivers Joe West and Jared Jenkins and tight end Schuylar Oordt.
None of these guys really had a chance to make the final roster, and I would consider them just camp bodies, but I did like what I saw from Oordt in limited time. I liked him in college, and I thought he made a pretty nice showing for himself while he was here. As far as West and Jenkins go, they are both nice players but never had a future with this team considering the logjam of bodies we have at receiver already. I want to wish all of these guys good luck as they try to continue their careers, and I hope all of them find a spot on a roster or practice squad this season.
This is just the first round of cuts, as the team has to get down to 80 players by Tuesday afternoon and the final 53 by Saturday. For those of you who are roster junkies like me, this is going to be a very interesting week. There are numerous positions still undecided, so make sure you stay tuned to Ramblin’ Fan for all your roster-cut news.
