Kick returner/wide receiver

LA Rams wide receiver and kick returner Nsimba Webster was not expected to make much of an impact. Sure, he was projected to compete for a role on special teams. But in the face of three new coordinators, a wave of new talented class of receivers, and a new season, he was viewed by many, including us, like an indistinguishable face in the pack.

When we are wrong, we admit it. We were very wrong. Rams Nsimaba Webster showed up large and in charge not only for return role but as a receiver who can pull in passes for positive yards.

After all, that is the role the Rams need on this roster

Returning returner

Webster is a veteran, returning to his familiar role with the team after getting some action in 2019. While he only saw spot duty, he was clearly ahead of others in consideration after the team parted ways with Jojo Natson.  The fact is that 5-foot-10 180-pound WR Webster returned just seven punts in 2019 and just two kicks.

That changes this year. He will be the team’s featured returner. And based on the little information we have read about his training camp, he was the clear leader in bringing back both punts and kicks. And in some circumstances, he may see get some work for the offense as well.
