Kicking game in crisis as Rams reduce roster to two quarterbacks


Hey there sports fans, I've got some news about the Rams, and it ain't pretty! They made their 53-man roster cuts this Tuesday and let go of guard Logan Bruss, their top choice from last year's draft. Bruss, a third-round pick from Wisconsin, spent his rookie season on the bench nursing a torn ACL and didn't impress enough this summer for the Rams to keep him around. 

Coach Sean McVay mentioned in a video call that the Rams are looking to re-sign Bruss to the practice squad, assuming he clears waivers by Wednesday. "We had an open mind with competition at every single spot, and we felt like the ten guys that we kept did a good job of earning those spots," he said. 

And that's not all - they also cut loose QB Brett Rypien, leaving Matthew Stafford as the starter with rookie Stetson Bennett, a fourth-round pick from Georgia, as his backup. But here's the kicker, pun intended - they got rid of rookie kicker Tanner Brown, leaving them without a kicker for now. McVay, with a grin, assured everyone that they'll have a kicker ready for their season opener against Seattle on September 10th. 

Switching gears, let's talk about the Angels. They put six players on waivers, signaling that they're looking ahead to the future rather than pushing for a playoff spot this season. This includes starting pitcher Lucas Giolito, their biggest trade deadline acquisition, and outfielder Hunter Renfroe. If these players are claimed by other teams, the Angels could save an estimated $7.5 million and dodge paying a luxury tax. 

Finally, the Chargers made some cuts too, waiving 35 players to reach the NFL-mandated 53-man roster limit. They'll start building their practice squad, which can have up to 17 players, this Wednesday. 

So that's the scoop on our LA teams. Lots of changes, and we'll see how they all pan out in the upcoming season. Stay tuned!
