Placekicker Josh Brown was among five players waived by the Rams, who also cut ties with tight end Demarco Cosby, defensive tackle John Henderson, cornerbacks Nate Ness and Chris Smith and running back Quinn Porter.
St. Louis drafted Missouri Western kicker Greg Zuerlein in the sixth round Saturday.
The Rams will save $2.7 million by cutting the 33-year-old Brown, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Brown, who signed a five-year, $14.2 million contract in 2008, made just 21 of 28 field-goal attempts last season.
