Based off a recent goodbye message on Twitter, it appears the Los Angeles Rams are moving on from running back Aaron Green.
With NFL teams having to trim down their rosters to 53 players by the Saturday deadline, the one interesting position for the Los Angeles Rams to keep an eye on was their situation at running back. Between Todd Gurley as the starter and Malcolm Brown as the backup, there was an interesting competition taking place for the No. 3 spot at running back between Aaron Green and Justin Davis.
After Les Snead recently hinted the former USC star would be part of the team’s plans during a recent interview, Green posted a message on Twitter Friday afternoon thanking the Rams for the opportunity, indicating he’s already been informed that he’s been cut. Here’s the message from Green below from Twitter:
Based off this, it’s safe to say that Los Angeles decided to go with Davis as the No. 3 running back at the moment over Green since the position was up for grabs with Lance Dunbar continuing to be sidelined with an injury. Originally, Green joined the Rams last offseason as an undrafted free agent, and even though he still seems to be a likely candidate for the practice squad, it’s tough not to feel bad for the running back since he seemed to have a good chance of making the roster a few weeks ago.
Of course, Green’s final preseason performance against the Green Bay Packers (12 rushing yards on seven carries) wasn’t anything to brag about. As far as the rest of the cuts for Los Angeles are concerned, these next 24 hours will be fun to watch with other key names, like Nelson Spruce, hoping to land a roster spot.
