The LA Rams roster has officially been trimmed down to the 53-player limit. But even so, everyone knows that the Rams are not done yet. After all, there is a huge goose egg in the Rams roster where a name of a starting place kicker should be listed.
But before you suffer from a panic attack, the LA Rams have a plan in place. This year, the Rams enjoy the benefit of preferential treatment in matters involving the NFL Waiver Wire. There is only one catch to making use of claiming players. In order to claim a player off waivers, they must be assigned to an open roster spot. That means that just after setting up their initial 53-man Rams roster, any successful claims will result in a completely new iteration.
