It’s roster cut Sunday. And just as some of us were wondering why it was so quiet at Rams Park this came along: Rams full back Ovie Mughelli gave us a heads up that the cuts were indeed coming.
Then the tweets from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch started popping up. It’s a tough day for many around the league…
These four players didn’t see a whole lot of playing time in the past few weeks. It shouldn’t come as a surprise but it still has to be hard to swallow. Especially for kicker Garrett Lindholm who probably knew coming into camp he didn’t have much of a chance.
Stay tuned as more cuts will be announced.

More names are rolling in. Certain Rams fans are not going to be happy.
#1 K Garrett Lindholm
#17 WR Charles Gilbert
#19 WR Brandyn Harvey
#35 RB Nick Schweiger
#36 RB Calvin Middleton
#45 LS Travis Tripucka
#47 FB Todd Anderson
#53 LB Noah Keller
#54 LB Alex Hoffman-Ellis
#68 T Ryan McKee
#70 G/T Kevin Hughs
#77W DT John Gill
#81 TE Brody Eldridge - Suspended four games for violating the leagues PED policy.
#84 WR Danario Alexander – waived/injured. Rams COULD potentially resign him if he clears waivers but with his injury history – mainly bad knees – this is very unlikely. Sorry, I know many of you were pulling for him.
#99 DT Trevor Laws – Placed on injured reserve.
This brings the Rams roster to 75. But the really hard cuts are yet to come as they get down to the final 53 by Friday, August 31st.
