Rams Claim TE Brody Eldridge


The Rams front office certainly isn’t done adding pieces for the upcoming season, and another new face will join the roster this week as the team claimed TE Brody Eldridge off waivers from the Colts. Eldridge is known more for his blocking ability than anything else, and he will join the stable of players the Rams already have at the position.

Eldridge has 14 receptions in 17 career games, so it’s no secret that he is a blocker and not much else. I find it curious that the team would make this move with the number of tight ends we already have on the roster. He’s going to be in a battle for a roster spot, but this probably doesn’t bode well for a number of guys already on the team. He has played other positions like fullback and on the offensive line, so I guess he could be a potential fullback candidate. I’m not sure that the Rams would claim him and try to switch his position, but it’s a possibility.
