Ed "Pi Double i" Henderson
In a surprising move today, the Los Angeles Rams have re-signed their sixth-round selection of the 2018 NFL Draft. Offensive lineman Jamil Demby played collegiately at the University of Maine was signed from the Detroit Lions practice squad, rejoining the Rams active roster.
The Rams waived Demby, subsequently after they activated the 2017 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald, to the active roster. Donald had been holding out awaiting a new contract extension. In a risky move, the Rams waived Demby and were optimistic that Demby cleared waivers as they intended to add him to their practice squad roster. However, the Lions claimed Demby and added him to their active roster.
The Rams have played with only seven active linemen since the release of former starting guard Jamon Brown. Demby addition now gives the Rams eight active roster, as well the Rams having their entire 2018 draft class under contracts.
