Rams cut WR/TE Jacob Harris
Rams are cutting Jacob Harris, per a league source— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) August 30, 2022
With Harris off the 53, Lance McCutcheon looks more like a lock.
Rams cut OLB Chris Garrett
The #Rams are waiving LB Chris Garrett, per source. Seventh-round pick last year out of Concordia (Minn.) was a preseason standout, but now looking for a new opportunity.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 30, 2022
Rams cut OLB Benton Whitley
The Rams are releasing OLB Benton Whitley, per source. Whitley, a UDFA out of Holy Cross, got a lot of promising reps in the preseason on defense and on special teams. He's a guy I can see them wanting to develop if they can, has to clear waivers to get to the practice squad.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) August 30, 2022
TE Roger Carter
The Rams are releasing versatile TE Roger Carter Jr., per source. But he's a player they'd really like back for the practice squad if he clears waivers. Plays special teams and could elevate for game day if any depth concerns arise.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) August 30, 2022
Rams cut S Dan Isom
The Los Angeles Rams are cutting Daniel Isom and will want him back for practice squad, per a league source— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) August 30, 2022
No surprise, the Rams are reportedly cutting safety Dan Isom but “will want him back for practice squad” according to Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.
Isom played college football at Washington State and went undrafted this year. He is a 24-year-old rookie who had the game-winning interception in preseason Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers. His place on the cut list doesn’t hint at any other news for any other players or safeties, since Isom was a longshot to make it, but his place on the practice squad could mean that maybe T.J. Carter will have a tougher time making it back once he is released.

Rumors: Rams plan to keep Keir Thomas on 53
Hearing Rams OLB Keir Thomas is making the initial roster. UDFA rookie who really worked this summer. Solid against the run, not just a pass-rusher.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) August 30, 2022
