The Los Angeles Rams are bringing back cornerback Shaun Jolly and signing him to the practice squad, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic’s sources. The news comes during the same week that cornerback Derion Kendrick was arrested, putting his immediate future in doubt. Jolly was waived with an injury designation on September 5th after spending training camp with the Rams.
Rams adding CB Shaun Jolly to their practice squad, per sources. Jolly had a great camp with them but got a hamstring injury. He’s healthy now, I’m told.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) October 19, 2023
Despite having the lowest-paid cornerbacks room in the NFL, not including Jalen Ramsey’s dead money, the L.A. Rams have had one of the best pass defenses in the NFL this season. Kendrick hasn’t been perfect, but good enough to contribute as a starter and former sixth round pick. Jolly may not immediately contribute this weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but could contribute soon.
Jolly, a former undrafted free agent out of Appalachian State, appeared in two games with the Rams last season. He has not played any snaps on defense in a regular season game during his career.
