From The RamCave:6/9/22

Travin Howard

By Joe Torosian

The Los Angeles Rams on Wednesday waived linebacker Travin Howard. 

Viewed as the No. 3 linebacker on the depth chart this coming season, the Rams tendered Howard this off-season. But the signing of Cooper Kupp to a three-year extension led to Howard’s release and the freeing of $2.54 million in salary.

A seventh-round pick in 2018 by the Rams, Howard saw a lot of time on special teams. But heading into 2020, he was slated to be a starter at inside linebacker before suffering a knee injury.

In 2021, Howard started in four games (including the playoffs), recording 28 tackles, six pass deflections, and two interceptions. His interception in the NFC Championship game secured the Rams’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers and sent them to the Super Bowl.

Entering 2022, Howard appeared to be third on the depth chart behind Bobby Wagner and Ernest Jones. His departure opens up an opportunity for undrafted free agent Jake Hummel.

Also remaining on the roster at linebacker are Christian Rozeboom, Jake Gervase, and Anthony Hines.

A player listed as at the edge to keep an eye on is Justin Hollins. If depth at the edge position develops, Hollins can move inside and work off the ball. Not saying it will happen, but keep an eye on him just the same.

D’Marco Farr

On this date in 1971, former Rams’ defensive tackle DeMarco was born.

Farr, an undrafted free agent out of Washington, played 100 games for the team from 1994 to 2000. Recording 36.5 sacks, and three interceptions, while somewhat undersized at 6-1/276.
