The Los Angeles Rams have signed safety Jordan Kovacs:
Rams have added safety Jordan Kovacs to roster. Played parts of last three seasons with Miami.— Rich Hammond (@Rich_Hammond) August 5, 2016
Kovacs, a four-year standout with the Michigan Wolverines, passed through the 2013 NFL Draft signing with the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent. In the last three seasons, Kovacs played in 28 games for the Dolphins as a reserve defender and special teams contributor.
At the end of the 2015 season, Kovacs was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs on a reserve/futures contract but was waived back in May.
Kovacs joins a Rams safety group crammed on the back end. T.J. McDonald is likely to regain his starting role that he’s held since Week 1 of his rookie year that he lost due to a non-alcohol-related DUI in May. With Rodney McLeod having joined the Philadelphia Eagles via free agency, that leaves Maurice Alexander, Cody Davis, Kovacs and three UDFAs in Rohan Gaines, Jordan Lomax and Brian Randolph clamoring for PT.
