Rams Cut Isaiah Battle

8:31pm: Should a team claim Battle on waivers, it would have to pick up Battle’s $80K in bonus guarantees, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

7:11pm: After using a fifth-round pick in this summer’s supplemental draft on Isaiah Battle, the Rams determined the Clemson product was not ready for action, waiving the rookie tackle, according to NFL.com’s Gil Brandt (on Twitter).

The Rams lost a 2016 fifth-round draft pick as a result of Battle’s selection and now have nothing to show for it. Battle was the only player picked in this year’s supplemental draft.

Battle couldn’t usurp either Andrew Donnal or Darrell Williams on the second team of the Rams’ depth chart. St. Louis kept 10 offensive linemen, per Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Twitter link).

The 22-year-old must pass through waivers.

    The likelihood of a 5th round pick making the team next year was not very good, they didn’t waste anything

    Also uscbill… another wasted 5th round pick? ? Do a little research and see how many 5th rounders start. It may not be the same ratio as 1-3 rounds but teams are made on late picks. Look at the Seahawks lol
