The St. Louis Rams made two more roster moves on Thursday. Cornerback Marquis Johnson and wide receiver Dominique Curry were released to clear up space on the roster following the 2012 NFL Draft and the team's addition of some two dozen undrafted free agents.

Curry never caught on at wide receiver, but he did prove to be a valuable contributor on special teams. The Rams signed Curry as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He landed on the injured reserve list in September of that year with a torn ACL. He played last season, almost exclusively on special teams.

Johnson was a 7th-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. A cornerback out of Alabama, he too struggled with injuries during his time with the Rams. He played briefly last season, once he returned from the PUP list.

The Rams drafted two cornerbacks in the draft this year, with a 2nd- and 3rd-round pick, which spelled the end for some of the carryovers. Ditto wide receiver. The team drafted two receivers and signed Steve Smith as a free agent.

NFL teams can carry 90 players on the roster, with no exemptions, through the third week of the preseason.
