St. Louis Rams: The Cuts Have Begun - 12 Shown The Door...

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

According to the St. Louis Rams official site, the team has moved, or  parted ways with 12 players thus far as they carve their roster down to 75. With 2 more to go before tomorrow's deadline, the cuts so far aren't all that surprising. E.J. Gaines is on injured reserve, and Damian Williams had his contract terminated.

These ten players were cut, with the only mild shocker being Imoan Claiborne. With the loss of Gaines, I would have thought a corner back who had a decent preseason was close to a lock. But this is the NFL, so anything can happen! Stay tuned to Turf Show Times as cuts come in today and tomorrow. Also, don't forget the big "cut to 53 day is on September 5th...

OT T Steven Baker (East Carolina)
OT Travis Bond (North Carolina)
CB Imoan Claiborne (NW Louisiana State)
S Jay Hughes (Mississippi State)

LS Tyler Ott (Harvard)
K/P Michael Palardy (Tennessee)
WR Tyler Slavin (New Mexico)

TE Brad Smelley (Alabama)*
LB Korey Toomer (Idaho)* - waived injured
C David Wang (Virginia Tech)

Per Myles Simmons- "Wide receiver Isaiah Ferguson was previously waved/injured, bringing the roster to 77."
