The LA Rams are back on the waiver wire again, this time, picking up former Atlanta Falcon WR Austin Trammel. So what are the LA Rams not telling us about their wide receiver room?  Simply the age-old trend that we’ve witnessed time and time again, that Rams head coach Sean McVay has never met a wide receiver that he doesn’t like.

The team needed to fill a roster spot, one that was created by waiving injured TE Kyle Markway. We’ll need to circle back to discuss the LA Rams tight end situation, but for now, let’s focus on the news announced this week.

The Rams’ assignment of Markway has resulted in an open roster spot, and with the current questions over the availability of Van Jefferson, the team is focused on the wide receiver depth.

So now let’s talk about their latest wide receiver addition, Austin Trammel. He was a wide receiver who had a bit of optimism from some of his 2021 NFL draft profiles.

He was signed by the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted rookie after the 2021 NFL Draft and is a graduate of Rice University.  He stands 5-foot-10, weighs 185-pounds, and was cut by the Falcons in June due to an undisclosed injury. He had since tried out with the Houston Texans with no success.

Trammel has an uphill battle to claim any type of roster spot with the Rams as an August signing, but that is not to say that he has no chance.

Trammell played in two games for the Falcons last season, on special teams, and the Rams are clearly interested in determining if he has a chance to make this year’s roster for the Rams on special teams.
