3 veterans who won't make LA Rams roster Week 1

The 2023 LA Rams are out to prove they can once again contend with veteran talent, but some veterans won't be so lucky

Sony Michel, RB

One of the more recent and notable signings around the NFL came when the Rams signed running back Sony Michel for his second stint with the team. Sadly, for Michel, this stint likely won't last very long.

The Rams have, of course, stated how they want to use Cam Akers as their workhorse and in a variety of ways this season. That relationship seems to have been repaired, thankfully. Behind Akers is last year's fifth-round pick Kyren Williams, whom the team likes a lot and figures to get some work to relieve Akers this coming season.

Then, there's rookie Zach Evans, whom the Rams took in the sixth round this year out of Mississippi. The Rams like Evans a lot and he's been creating some buzz throughout the team's offseason program, already.

If Los Angeles decided to keep four running backs, then maybe Michel has a shot. But, he'd also have to beat out last year's undrafted rookie Ronnie Rivers who was also well-liked and looked to have a shot at some meaningful snaps when the Rams were going through their issues with Akers and also working through injuries.

Michel has experience in McVay's system, and he could prove to have plenty left in the tank. But, there are better guys ahead of him and some youth ahead of him as well.

Trending. Love Rams pushing boundaries. Come hell or high water, I love the Rams willingness to push the boundaries. dark
