The Los Angeles Rams wasted no time signing a familiar player of former Denver Broncos linebacker coach and their current Defensive Coordinator Brandon Staley. The Rams claimed second-year linebacker from Oregon Justin Hollins to add to their 53-man active roster and reuniting him with Staley. The Bronco's surpringly waived Hollins and Tommy Davis yesterday after cutting thier roster down to 53 players.
The 6'5" 247-pound Hollins was a fifth-round selection of the Bronco's last season and was one of the fastest linebackers at the 2019 NFL Combine. In his rookie year with the Broncos, Hollins played in all but one game after replacing Brandon Chubb, after a season-ending injury. Hollins recorded 21 tackles, two pass deflections, and one sack.
As the Rams add Hollins to their active roster, it now gives the Rams four-inside linebackers on the depth chart and is not surprised if they not done making roster changes. They currently are carrying three centers on the roster, and potentially, Brian Allen or Coleman Shelton can be released.
The Rams will host the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday at their brand new $5Billion So-Fi Stadium in Inglewood, CA. Due to the pandemic's wave of the Covid-19, the game will have no fans in the stadium, which affects the Rams without their home-field fan noise.
