3. Steven Parker
While the Rams were already fired up over what the future holds with John Johnson at safety after last year, the team took the hype to new levels this offseason by convincing Eric Weddle to come on board following his release from the Baltimore Ravens.
Take this into consideration with the addition of Taylor Rapp from this year’s draft, things are looking good at safety for Los Angeles with the team loaded with talent.
Of course, as a result of the Rams being stacked at the safety position heading into September, it also means this could make it a little more difficult for other players to earn a roster spot, which seems to be the case for Steven Parker.
The last thing Los Angeles wants to do is use an unnecessary roster spot at safety when it could easily be used at a different position, and even though Parker’s potential is great, this seems like it would be the right move for the Rams.
Parker certainly deserves plenty of credit for the effort made over the last few weeks in preseason, but unfortunately all of the current safeties Los Angeles is expected to keep around makes this more difficult to pull off.
