St. Louis Rams Cut Roster Down To 80

Over the course of the last three days the St. Louis Rams have cot WR Joe West, TE Schuylar Oordt, WR Jared Jenkins, LB Na'il Diggs, S John Dempsey, DE Kenneth Charles, CB Dionte Dinkins and CB Mikail Baker to get down to the 80 player limit. Teams must now make some very tough choices to get down to the 53-man roster limit by midnight on Saturday, September 3rd. Overall these cuts came as no surprise however Mikail Baker was a 7th round draft pick this year. The Thursday night game for the Rams vs. Jacksville will be the final chance for players to show what they have to try and make the squad. The Rams are going to have some tought choices to make especially at wide receiver, linebacker and in the secondary. In addition to draft picks Greg Salas and Austin Pettis, the Rams also have Danario Alexander, Dominique Curry and Mardy Gilyard. I believe the last three all sit on the bubble and will need to play very well to make the team. 33% of the current roster will be gone by Sunday so stay tuned for all of the updates.
