NFL: Los Angeles Rams-Training Camp

The Los Angeles Rams have made a pair of roster transactions today.

First, they elected to bring back QB Dylan Thompson for a second straight training camp. Thompson, a former South Carolina quarterback, signed with the Rams for camp last offseason and was waived in the preseason.

In order to make room for Thompson, the Rams waived RB De’Mard Llorens, one of the most productive players in Northwestern State football history. Llorens was signed after a successful tryout at the rookie minicamp a couple weeks ago. This move is another reminder that NFL can mean “Not For Long”:

While Thompson will likely serve as a “camp arm” (limiting the reps needed from Jared Goff and Sean Mannion with the back end offense), this roster move still strikes as an odd one as the Rams waived Aaron Murray before getting into training camp. Not sure why Thompson was preferred to Murray, but regardless, this move further indicates that the Rams are likely satisfied with Goff and Mannion for this upcoming season.
