Howard signed a contract with the Rams on Wednesday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Rams took Howard in the seventh round of last year's draft and ultimately stashed him on the practice squad for the entirety of the 2018 season. The TCU product will now stick around in Los Angeles this offseason with the aim of securing a depth role on a roster that has a number of linebackers (Dante Fowler, Cory Littleton, Matt Longacre) and special-teamers (Ramik Wilson, Bryce Hager) slated to test free agency.
The Rams waived Howard (undisclosed) from injured reserve Saturday, per the league's official transaction log.
The rookie seventh-round pick out of TCU couldn't shake his mystery injury. Howard will be free to sign with another team once he's healthy.
Howard (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.
Howard is stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
The Rams waived/injured Howard (undisclosed) on Saturday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.
Howard was the Rams' seventh-round pick in April's draft. He's a talented young linebacker, but he's also undersized, standing at 5-foot-11 and 211 pounds. If he clears waivers, he'll revert to the team's injured reserve.
