Ed "Pi Double I" Henderson
The Los Angeles Ram has added running back and returns specialist Raymond Calais to their active roster. Calais, the rookie from the University of Louisiana, is a seventh-round draft selection of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs waived Calais after not surviving their 53-man roster however was added him to their practice squad. The Rams did not waste any time signing Calais off the Bucs practice squad and adding him to the team.
Calais ran one of the fourth fastest 40-times at the 2020 NFL Combine this past spring and was on the Rams radar before the Bucs selection.
Calais brings added speed to the crowded Rams backfield and can potentially take over with the kick return duties.
Calais was tagged as one of the shiftiest back at the NCAA level and was a dangerous return specialist. It is yet to be determined if Calais will be active for week one against the Dallas Cowboys at the new $5-billion So-Fi Stadium. The kickoff time is at 5:30 pm PST and will be the first game in the Rams new stadium.
The Rams need to release another player that will be named later in a corresponding move.
