After calling up CB Donte Deayon to the 53-man active roster, the Los Angeles Rams have filled his practice squad spot by signing CB Adonis Alexander:

Alexander is a former 6th-round draft pick by the Washington Redskins in 2018’s Supplemental NFL Draft. The hulking CB stands at 6’3” and 205 lbs, coming out of Virginia Tech.
Alexander was waived by the Redskins just prior to the season, landing on Washington’s practice squad. Alexander lasted on the practice squad until October 1st, now joining the Rams’ practice squad.
The Rams had two practice squad spots vacated yesterday after signing Deayon and OL Chandler Brewer to the active roster, though they filled one of the spots immediately by signing OL Nate Trewyn. The 10th spot on the practice squad is now occupied by Alexander, who’ll logically replace Deayon.
Alexander is only 23-years-old, has played in nine NFL games, and only has four tackles in his short career.
