Sunday NFL Transactions: NFC West

Listed below are the Sunday roster moves for the four NFC West teams. Following the 53-man roster cutdown deadline yesterday, many teams will make slight tweaks to their rosters, claiming players off waivers or signing guys who clear waivers. Those transactions for the Cardinals, Rams, 49ers, and Seahawks are noted below.

Additionally, as of 12:00pm CT today, teams can begin constructing their 10-man practice squads. You can check out our glossary entry on practice squads to brush up on those changes, as well as all the other guidelines that govern the 10-man units, whose players practice with the team but aren’t eligible to suit up on Sundays.

Rams Cut Cornelius Lucas, Place Ryan Davis On IR

The Rams are the latest team to start the cut down to 53 players, which must be completed by Saturday afternoon. Los Angeles made the following transactions:

Released:

Waived:

Waived/injured:

Placed on injured reserve:

Lucas could have conceivably given the Rams a bit of depth at offensive tackle, as he has 35 career games under his belt (although he’s played in only six contests over the past two seasons). Davis, meanwhile, flashed during training camp and may have been an option on the edge if not for injury.

Rams Sign Seven Undrafted Free Agents

The Rams have agreed to terms with seven undrafted free agents, the club announced today:

  • LaQuvionte Gonzalez, WR (Southeastern)
  • Ricky Jeune, WR (Georgia Tech)
  • Jeremiah Kolone, G (San Jose State)
  • Curtis Mickell, DB (Southern Mississippi)
  • Steven Mitchell, WR (USC)
  • McKay Murphy, DT (Weber State)
  • Tegray Scales, LB (Indiana)

Scales began his collegiate career at Indiana by earning freshman All-American honors before being named second-team All-Big Ten during his senior year. Per Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, Scales is a “vocal leader” who offers “elite instincts,” but could struggle to add weight to what is already a small size. Scales put up a whopping 36.5 tackles for loss over the past two seasons, and also put up 13 sacks over that same period.
