Rams Roster Cuts: Danario Alexander Waived, Trevor Laws To IR, 13 Released

The St. Louis Rams' roster is down to 75 players after the team made a round of moves that included waiving Danario Alexander.

The St. Louis Rams announced their full complement of roster cuts on Monday, trimming from 90 to 75 players. Among the more surprising, sort of, names on the list was that of wide receiver Danario Alexander. In addition to the players released, defensive tackle Trevor Laws was placed on injured reserve.

A total of 13 players were cut. That list includes:

FB Todd Anderson, TE Brody Eldridge, WR Charles Gilbert, DT John Gill, WR Brandyn Harvey, LB Alex Hoffman-Ellis, T Kevin Hughes, LB Noah Keller, K Garrett Lindholm, T Ryan McKee, RB Calvin Middleton, RB Nick Schwieger and LS Travis Tripucka.

The 13 players released does not include any real surprises. All 13 of them had a good run through camp and the preseason. A few might catch on somewhere else.

Laws, 27, was an underrated free agent addition to give the defensive tackles some veteran help behind starters Michael Brockers and Kendall Langford. The Rams signed him to a one-year contract in early April.

The Danario Alexander news is a bit of a shocker when you consider his talent level, but not so much when you look back at his injury history. He has yet to play in a preseason game while suffering from a never-ending hamstring injury.

It will be interesting to see if DX gets a flyer from another team. He certainly has the talent, but not the knees after having five knee surgeries. The Rams could also re-sign him after he clears waivers.
