Rams also made roster move: Promote S Christian Bryant and release CB Brandon McGee. Bryant can help on special teams and depth at safety.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) October 2, 2015
To fill Bryant's spot on practice squad, the Rams have signed CB Eric Patterson (Ball State) who was in camp w/Indy and w/Pats in offseason— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) October 2, 2015
It's perhaps an inauspicious end to CB Brandon McGee's time with the St. Louis Rams. Having slipped down the rungs of the cornerback chart, McGee was promoted as part of a transaction trio on Tuesday that saw the Rams bid adieu to RB Isaiah Pead and bring WR Nick Toon into the fold.
McGee was a fifth-round selection for the Rams in the 2013 NFL Draft along with RB Zac Stacy. Both McGee and Stacy, along with 2013 fourth-round pick C Barrett Jones, are no longer under contract with the team.
Today, McGee is making way for S Christian Bryant, who will be needed with S Maurice Alexander sidelined with an injury for the time being. Bryant's slot on the practice squad will be filled in the interim by newly signed CB Eric Patterson who comes over from offseason jaunts with the Patriots and Colts.
