3. John Kelly
Around this time last year, there was plenty of excitement surrounding John Kelly possibly being a potential steal after looking at the impact made during training camp and preseason.

Unfortunately for Kelly, the Rams decided to make the former Tennessee star as part of Saturday’s roster cuts, which came as a bit of a surprise since while Justin Davis seemed like he was on his way out, Kelly seemed to be safe.
Despite all of the uncertainty surrounding Todd Gurley heading into September with his knee, Kelly still seemed like he would be capable of seeing some carries behind Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson during the 2019 season as insurance to the position.
This move may come as a surprise to some Rams fans, but on a positive note, at least this is one of those moves that won’t impact the offense in a big way.
At the end of the day, if Sean McVay truly believed he was capable of turning Kelly into a secret weapon on offense, the Rams coach would have kept the young running back around.
Kelly certainly showed potential last summer, but this is the perfect example of how quickly circumstances can change in the NFL for certain players appearing to have a future with a team.
