The LA Rams continued to fill vacancies on the team’s roster, finally filling the two remaining open spots on the team’s 16+1 practice squad roster. After addressing the needs on defense with the signing of inside linebacker Christian Rozeboom and the trade for outside linebacker Von Miller, the team returned to shore up the offense once more.

Even as the team had already added one wide receiver in Warren Jackson, the Rams felt that another receiver made sense here. The team knows that both the offense and special teams still are in need of playmakers, so that is what the team signed up to the roster. The Rams added WR Brandon Powell and RB Mekhi Sargent.

The LA Rams certainly paid attention to the social media pleas for help, as both new additions have the right background and skillset to help out the team reinforce both the return and coverage units for the Rams special teams.

Now, the question is, will this simply be too little too late? We know that the organization is taking full advantage of activating two players in time for a football game. That has helped reduce the wear and tear, somewhat, on the team.

But the cohesion of the special teams has suffered as a result. With the Rams roster splitting further into elite players who don’t do special teams, versus young talented players with little to no NFL experience, it’s becoming harder for the team to assemble a special teams roster that can establish continuity.
