What Moves Are Next?

See the below posts for the recent roster moves by the Rams, which now leaves a few open slots for the Rams to acquire new players.

UPDATE 3: The Rams promoted Leger Douzable from the practice squad to the active squad to fill Hollis Thomas’s spot.

UPDATE 2: Douglas is promoted to the active squad as expected.

UPDATE: The Rams added DT Marlon Favorite to the practice squad yesterday to fill 1 open practice squad spot.  Favorite (6-1, 317) was an undrafted free agent in Carolina camp.  (via HBalzer721 twitter)

2 spots are open on the active roster.

1 is available for 4 games while David Vobora is suspended.  Expect the Rams to promote from the practice squad for this spot.  The Post-Dispatch speculates that it could be practice squad LB Dominic Douglas.

The second spot is available after Hollis Thomas’s release.  The Rams could use some help rushing the passer.  Too bad pass rush DE Bryan Smith was just picked off the Rams practice squad by the Jacksonville Jaguars a few days ago.  The Rams could go a lot of directions with this roster spot as they have a lot of defensive linemen on the roster already.

The practice squad could have 3 open spots if someone is Douglas is in fact promoted to the active roster.  The Rams lost DE Bryan Smith to the Jaguars, promoted WR Nate Jones to replace Laurent Robinson already.  Look for the Rams to scour the street free agent market for young, practice squad eligible players to fill out their 3 spots.

It should be interesting to see what the Rams do with their new roster flexibility.
