In what seems like never-ending roster movements, the Los Angeles Rams have signed recently-waived QB Brandon Allen to their practice squad:

This was an expected move as the Rams recently let go of UDFA QB Luis Perez leaving them with only Jared Goff and Sean Mannion on the roster. For most people, Allen likely outplayed Mannion in the preseason and deserved to be the backup QB, but it’s largely irrelevant. If anything were to happen to #16, neither of those quarterbacks are likely to cut it for a team with Superbowl aspirations.
You can take a look at some of the recent transactions the Rams have made as they’ve promoted certain players (WR KhaDarel Hodge), activated suspended ones (RG Jamon Brown), waived both active roster players (S Isaiah Johnson) and practice squad players (TE Temarrick Hemingway, QB Luis Perez), and signed new practice squad players (Brandon Allen, OT Darrell Williams Jr).
Get ready for week three!
