Kasim Edebali began his 2017 season playing in a scheme initially put together by Wade Phillips, in signing with the Broncos in March. Now, the fourth-year edge defender will play for Phillips in Los Angeles.
The Rams signed Edebali on Wednesday and placed Brandon Allen on IR, the team announced.
The Lions claimed Edebali off waivers in November after the Broncos parted ways with him, but Detroit followed suit in cutting him. Edebali, who initially played with the Saints from 2014-16, was a free agent for nearly a week. He played 56 snaps for the Broncos and Lions, mostly serving as a special teams presence this season. He received more playing time for the Saints, registering eight sacks in three seasons.
Allen spent all season on the Rams’ active roster after arriving in September via waiver claim. The Redskins also put in a claim for the former Jaguars draft choice in September, but the Rams attained Allen’s rights due to a higher waiver priority.
