The surgery comes with a five-month recovery timetable. It appears as if this shoulder injury was much more significant than the one he played through in 2014. Saffold should be ready for 2016 training camp.
Austin was drafted eighth overall in 2013 and has been used as an all-purpose weapon through his first three seasons. Last year, Austin caught 52 passes (on 86 targets) for 473 yards and five touchdowns, and rushed 52 times for 434 yards and four more scores. The shifty wideout has also returned one punt for a touchdown in each season since entering the league. Given his dynamic versatility, it's of little surprise that the Rams decided to exercise Austin's option, keeping him under contract through 2017.
After joining the league as an undrafted free agent, Magee saw action in just four games with the Ravens last season, notching five yards on two carries. He'll join the Rams as a camp body, but remains a long shot to make the teams' final 53-man roster.
Cunningham -- who rushed for 140 yards on 37 carries and caught 26 passes for 250 yards in 2015 -- had visited with the Patriots in free agency, but he has elected to re-up with Los Angeles where he continue to provide the Rams' backfield with a change-of-pace element behind Todd Gurley, as well as contribute on special teams.
Spruce followed a monster junior season, 105 receptions for 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns, with a bit of a down-year in 2015, recording just 84 catches for 942 yards and three touchdowns. Weighing in a 6-foot-1, 206 pounds, Spruce has proved himself to be a reliable option in his time at Colorado, dropping just three passes in his last 288 targets. While he lacks an explosive skill set, he'll look to add depth to a young Rams' receiving corp led by Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt.
Hemingway could have easily gone in the fourth or fifth round, so this looks like a nice value for the Rams. Hemingway (6-foot-5, 244 pounds) has good size and equally good athleticism, highlighted by his 4.71-second 40 and 6.88-second three-cone drill.
In 10 games last season, Whittaker ran 32 times for 145 yards (4.5 ypc) and a touchdown and caught five passes for 60 yards and another score.
The special teams selections are as follows:
With Jared Cook gone, Harkey should play a larger role in the offense as the Rams love two-tight end sets. He only had five catches for 26 yards last season and is primarily a blocker, but should see at least a minor spike in production in 2016.
Coples, whose deal carries a maximum value of $9.75 million, figures to work as a defensive end in the Rams' 4-3 defense, with the team looking to add some pass rushing depth following the offseason departure of Chris Long. Though Coples was limited to just eight tackles in 2015, he did record 37 tackles and 6.5 sacks while with the Jets in 2014.
Forrest was a decent enough player at Kentucky, surpassing triple-digit tackles in 2014, but the Wildcat defense was a mess over that time frame, and Forrest's Combine showing was not good. With a 4.91-second 40 and weak jump numbers, Forrest might struggle to run in the NFL.
This was Mannion's first look of the season, and he performed decently in his sparse game time. Nick Foles has been awful the last two weeks, and if Case Keenum is still hurt, the Rams may give Mannion a shot at the starting spot. That being said, the Rams' offense is putrid and no matter who's under center, they're not going to produce much fantasy-wise.
Recovering from a knee surgery and with very serious allegations of race-influenced assault hanging over him, Higbee carries far more baggage than anyone selected to this point in the draft. He's a rare athletic talent at tight end, but his April 10 arrest leaves his situation highly uncertain. Higbee claims he's not guilty, and his arraignment is May 5.
Bailey suffered a pair of gunshot wounds to the head last November, underwent surgery soon after, and has been working relentlessly to return to the field since. Unfortunately, his release from the team suggests the Rams don't believe his NFL career can continue much longer. Should he clear waivers, NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported that Bailey is expected to rejoin the team in a non-playing role.
Britt seemed to find some chemistry with Case Keenum near the end of the year, averaging more than 20 yards a catch over his last five games with a pair of touchdowns. It's doubtful Keenum will be the quarterback to begin 2016, so some of Britt's value will hinge on that decision in St. Louis, although he did a decent job with what he had this season.
A collision during one of Los Angeles' practices last week left Johnson concussed, and his absence from minicamp suggests the cornerback is still working his way through the concussion protocol. Johnson should be all right for training camp, but questionable for the remainder of minicamp.
Sensabaugh's deal with the team could be worth up to $19 million, with the 27-year-old cornerback coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 60 tackles and two picks for the Titans. The addition of Sensabaugh helps offset the Rams' loss of fellow cornerback Janoris Jenkins to the Giants.
The Rams made it clear when they traded for the number one pick in the draft and drafted Jared Goff that Foles was not the starting quarterback of their future. The team looked to trade Foles and were unable to find a partner, so they granted the quarterback's request for his release. He will not go through waivers and is currently a free agent, though it's unclear who he'll look to sign with. Last season, Foles threw for 2,052 yards, seven touchdowns, and 10 interceptions while completing 56.4 percent of his passes.
After a little bit of a midseason lull, Donald is back to his stellar self, with 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks his last two weeks. He continues to be a beast in the middle of the Rams' line and is already one of the top defensive tackles in the league.
The Rams had previously stated they were going to bring Battle along slowly, but reversed course. St. Louis will lose its fifth-round pick in next year's draft.
Bates came into the ruled doubtful due to a groin injury. Roberson was considered questionable with an ankle injury. The other five players listed are healthy scratches.
To make room for him on the 53-man roster, the Bucs released center Eric Kush. Kush was a gameday inactive for the team's Week 1 loss against the Titans on Sunday.
Gaines was the only player listed on the injury report. He was considered doubtful due to a concussion. The other six players listed are healthy scratches.
McDonald was excused midway through OTA's back in June and it seems that whatever kept him away at the time is now passed and won't be much of an issue going forward. He'll likely step back into his role as a starter after Christian Bryant filled the first team slot with McDonald out.
Ogletree was limited to only four games played last season due to a fractured fibula suffered in October, but was rather productive through his first two NFL seasons, totaling 228 tackles, 10 forced fumbles and three interceptions over that span. Although he'll be coming back from injury this year, Ogletree is expected to start at middle linebacker for the Rams, who released long-time defender James Laurinaitis earlier this offseason. Along with that move, Los Angeles' decision to exercise Ogletree's option provides a further vote a confidence that he'll remain a key contributor through the 2017 campaign.
After having recorded 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 13 games (including nine starts) for the Rams in 2015, Sims is not much of an IDP factor, but he does provide the team with valuable depth at defensive end in the wake of the departure of Chris Long.
Gaines was the only player listed on the injury report. He was considered doubtful due to a concussion. The other six players listed are healthy scratches.
The Rams have to be hoping Quick bounces back in 2016 after a rough campaign last year. He had only 10 catches for 102 yards, but was recovering from possible career-ending shoulder surgery. He was a very minor part of the offense in 2015 but as the Rams are bringing him back, they must have a plan to perhaps increase his role.
Mason has been excused from the team for personal reasons since early March, when he was arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana, reckless driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and resisting arrest. According to a recent TMZ report, Mason has subsequently been at the center of a number of other incidents involving police the past few months, with family members expressing concern about his mental health. While the details surrounding his situation aren't known, it does seem clear that Mason won't be with the Rams for the early part of training camp.
After last week's announcement that Quinn would undergo season-ending back surgery, landing on IR was inevitable. The pass rusher concludes his fifth season with 21 tackles (13 solo), including five sacks, and three forced fumbles across eight games.
It appears the Rams are willing to give "Legatron" one more shot at turning things around after a disappointing 2015 campaign in which he converted just 20-of-30 field goal attempts and 26-of-28 extra point attempts. It's possible he will have some competition in camp as well, but Zuerlein will likely enter the favorite to retain the job.
"We’re not going to make a decision real early,” coach Jeff Fisher said, per StLToday.com. “We’ll let them all play. We’re rotating them. They’re all getting opportunities to work with (QBNick Foles), so he’s familiar, not only with the exchanges, but also the communication. We’ll make that decision when somebody shows us he’s earned the job."
Poor pre-draft workout numbers pushed Cooper this far, but the skilled open-field runner was highly productive as the workhorse in the South Carolina offense the last two years. Despite 4.65 speed and weak jumps (31-inch vertical, 117-inch broad jump), Cooper's film and production give reason to think he can make an impact in the NFL, even if it's only as a slot wideout and returner. Landing with the Rams is not the greatest news for his fantasy prospects, however.
Barron burst onto the scene with 72 tackles in 12 starts last season, including a 16-tackle performance against the Browns. The converted safety looked right at home at linebacker last season, and could fill in nicely in Alec Ogletree's spot as he moves to middle linebacker.
Kendricks signed a surprisingly lucrative four-year, $18.5 million contract last offseason, proving that the Rams value his work as a blocker. The team will likely be in search of a pass-catching complement via free agency or the draft, but it is quite possible that Cook's release leads to a significant bump in snaps and targets.
Los Angeles has a glut at quarterback, with the No. 1 overall draft pick joined by Keenuu, Nick Foles and 2015 third-rounder Sean Mannion. It appears the team will trade or release Foles, and there don't seem to be any real plans for Mannion. After signing a first-round RFA tender (worth about $3.6 million), Keenum figures to compete with Goff for the starting job, though it may be a competition in name only. A three-year starter in college, the 21-year-old Goff figures to take the reins sooner rather than later. It will be a surprise if he isn't under center in Week 1.
The Rams picked up the fifth-year option on Brockers' rookie contract earlier in the week, but it appears that they're fielding offers for him.
The Cowboys, Texans and Cardinals have been calling the Rams, trying to work out a trade, and the Dolphins are also trying to get involved.
AZCentral's Kent Somers cited a source refuting the report that the Cardinals had inquired about Brockers.
With a possible suspension looming for Tre Mason, Brown could find himself third on the depth chart behind Todd Gurley and Benny Cunningham. He had four carries for 17 yards in the season finale last year, and will likely get a hard look in the upcoming preseason.
Ayers spent last season with the Patriots recording 20 total tackles, four sacks and one interception. The 25-year-old spent four seasons with the Titans prior to playing for the Patriots.
For his career Ayers has 252 total tackles, 13 sacks and three forced fumbles.
Joyner is having a decent year as the nickel back, with 29 tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery. While those aren't huge IDP numbers, he's only in his second year and could be up for a starting position in the future.
Those on the offensive side of the ball are wide receivers Emory Blake, Austin Franklin and Justin Veltung, linemen Sean Hooey, Mitchell Van Dyk, Travis Bond and Brandon Washington, quarterback Garrett Gilbert and tight end Brad Smelley.
Defenders now gone are linemen Kourtnei Brown, Matt Conrath and Deantre Harlan, defensive backs Christian Bryant, Darren Woodard, Avery Cunningham and Greg Reid and linebackers Aaron Hill, Etienne Sabino, Phillip Seward and Lawrence Wilson.
The Rams also placed wideout Stedman Bailey on the reserved/suspended list.
Easley had a tryout with the Rams early on Tuesday morning, which obviously went well, as he's been signed to a one-year contract. Easley spent his first two years in the league with the Patriots, where he compiled 41 tackles and five sacks over 22 games. After being waived by the Patriots in April, he'll join the Rams 4-3 defense as an interior guy and will likely have to fight for snaps behind the likes of Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers. Easley did finish last season on injured reserve due to a leg injury as well, so it remains unclear if that may impact his training camp availability.
Janoris Jenkins, who was listed as questionable, will also give it a shot. Jenkins is dealing with a knee injury. Cody Davis will also try to play. He was questionable on the team's final injury report.
Tackle Jake Long is also bouncing back from surgery. Long tore his ACL seven games into the season. Fisher said that Long's rehab is "coming along" With Robinson's success at left tackle, the team is trying to decide where else on the line Long could fit in.
Less than one year removed from a torn ACL in his final season at Georgia, Gurley found traction in his second career game on Oct. 4 against Arizona and was one of the best backs in the league from there. Starting with his 146-yard showing against the Cardinals, Gurley reached the 100-yard mark in four consecutive games. He finished the year third in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,106 behind only Adrian Peterson and Doug Martin. Gurley beat out Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston and Oakland's Amari Cooper to take home the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
With Chris Long leaving, the Rams needed to keep Hayes, who has developed into a fairly effective pass rusher the last few years. Working is less of a rotation without Long, a 10-sack season isn't out of the question for Hayes.
