Defensive back

When the LA Rams added veteran defensive back, Kareem Orr, to their 90 man roster, it was a bit of a surprise. No, not the position. The LA Rams clearly needed some talent to add depth and competition to their secondary. It’s simply that the performance of Orr while playing for the Tennessee Titans was good, but not the type of good that catches the eye. Well, unless you are working for the LA Rams personnel department that is.

Orr is a 5-foot-11 195-pound defensive back who signed on with the Tennessee Titans in 2019 off the roster of the Chattanooga Mocs. Yes, that is correct. The Mocs. The Titans were not the only team intrigued by the secondary playmaker.

When the Titans released him earlier this year, the LA Rams pounced.

So far, Kareem Orr has put up six tackles and one deflected pass. But he has been a star of training camp too. We know that the team drafted Robert Rochell to join the ranks of the Rams defensive backs for the 2021 NFL season. But if there was any belief that Orr was added to be a camp body, you can put those undervalued estimations to rest. He is competing for a role with the LA Rams, or some NFL team with a need for a productive defensive back.
