Rams released DE/TE Mason Brodine. Sat out last season with fractured ankle.

Consider this a showing of TST's dedication to keeping you fully abreast of all roster moves...
Brodine first arrived in St. Louis in August of 2012 after being claimed off of waivers from the Oakland Raiders. A defensive end out of University of Nebraska at Kearney, Brodine stuck around the Rams for three seasons, the first two on the practice squad trying to convert to a tight end but mostly adding depth for special teams. He never did crack through. A broken ankle last year suffered in the preseason ended his 2014 action.
He's a good reminder of the back end of NFL rosters. Guys like Brodine plug away all year just to hold on to the tail of a moving beast they can never catch up with. They're in there during practices and throughout the offseason and putting in all the effort as the starters for an ounce of the fame and money. It's a cold world.
On a lighter note, Mason Brodine's alma mater's mascot is the Lopers, an apparent nickname for Antelopes, an animal that I did not realize was a mascot for anything anywhere. Click here to join the Loper Kidz Club.
Best of luck to Mason.
