Los Angeles Rams sign Chunky Clements

The most recent addition to the Rams defensive line happens to have an amazing football name.

The Los Angeles Rams have signed former Minnesota Vikings and Houston Texans DT Chunky Clements. Clements played for Virginia and went undrafted in 2017.

What should we expect from good ‘ol Chunky? Sadly, history dictates that he’ll be on the practice squad or at best, at the very bottom of the 53-Man roster. He did have 26.5 tackles for loss and six sacks in four seasons playing at Virginia.

At 295 pounds, Clements could add some legit depth, backing up guys like Michael Brockers and Aaron Donald. So, think of Clements as a more unexperienced version of Ethan Westbrooks.

This could have something to do with Aaron Donald’s contract drama. He’s probably just a body for camp since Donald won’t be around. This whole Donald situation has gone on for too long and I can’t think straight anymore. But this signing is fun, even just for the enjoyment of his amazing name.

Welcome to the Rams, Chunky!
