No surprises in Rams' roster moves

EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The Rams moved closer to reaching the NFL-mandated 75-man roster Monday afternoon when they announced 11 cuts.

The team confirmed the release of four players we reported here yesterday in receiver Andrew Helmick, cornerback Robert Steeples, long snapper Jorgen Hus and kicker/punter Brett Baer.

Along with that quartet, the Rams also parted ways with quarterback Timothy Jenkins, receivers Raymond Radway and Demetrius Fields, linebacker Joseph LeBeau and tight end Colby Prince. Offensive lineman Graham Pocic also went with a waived/injured designation.

None of the cuts really came as a surprise given playing time and performance in the team’s three exhibition games.

Of the group, Radway flashed the most potential in the preseason, coming up with three catches for 78 yards including a 53-yard touchdown catch in the opener against Cleveland. But it was the catch he didn’t make in that game, a deep ball down the sideline that slipped through his fingers that may haunt him.

Radway tailed off a bit after that game and didn’t play an offensive snap against Denver.

The Rams previously parted ways with tight end Cameron Graham, and running back Terrance Ganaway opted to leave on his own accord last week. They have two more moves to make to get to the required 75 by Tuesday afternoon.
