First Roster Cut Casualties Begin To Emerge

The first reports of cuts are starting to rain in from Rams Park  and from around the league, including the release of Terrell Owens up in Seattle. To this point they have been primarily no-name player, although we should except to see some hard cuts from the Rams in the coming days as the 53-man roster deadline looms closer. So far, Jim Thomas has reported a couple of players,



Unless you have been watching extremely closely, I highly doubt that you seen any of those names. Gill got some good reps in against the Cowboys this week, but that was primarily due to the plague of injuries that swept the Rams defensive line this past week. Sadly, Lindholm did not really have a chance to make the team, since teams rarely keep more than one place kicker on a team, and Greg “the Leg” is not going anywhere anytime soon. More cuts should be coming in soon…

In unrelated news to the Rams, although some may find it interesting, Alex Barron was dropped by Seattle. Alex Barron was supposed to be the replacement for Orlando Pace at left tackle. Before the drafting of Jason Smith, Barron was by far the biggest disappointment on the Rams roster, known primarily for his impeccable ability to jump offsides during key points of the game. Barron was traded in offseason prior to the 2010 draft to the Dallas Cowboys for Bobby Carpenter, who was dropped by the Rams during the preseason.
