The Los Angeles Rams have signed undrafted free-agent receiver Nsimba Webster to their practice squad. On a day the Rams front office was busy making moves, add Webster to the equation.
The rookie made defied all odds by making the team's original 53-man roster after going undrafted out of Eastern Washington University. The organization released Webster last Saturday to make room to promote running back John Kelly from their practice squad. After starting running back Todd Gurley was ruled out against the San Francisco 49ers, the team needed to add a third running back.
Earlier today, Rams executed a trade with the Cleveland Browns for offensive lineman Austin Corbett for a 2021 fifth-round draft pick. Surprisingly they traded their all-pro cornerback Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens for linebacker Kenny Young and a 2020 fifth-round pick.
They pulled a blockbuster trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jaylen Ramsey for a 2020 and2021 first-round draft pick and a 2021 fourth-round selection. The Ramsey move was expected considering the fact they traded Peters away for a linebacker.
Webster was inactive during his short stint on the active roster; however, he will work hard to make it back. Head coach Sean McVay, really impressed with Webster's playing making ability and won't be long before he makes it back to the active roster.
