    Rams shuffle their roster again

    By Jim Thomas
    Of the Post-Dispatch
    The roster-shuffling continues unabated at Rams Park.

    On Friday, little more than 48 hours before Sunday's season-opening kickoff, the Rams made two more moves. As expected, the roster exemption was lifted for left tackle Orlando Pace, meaning he is on the active roster and counts against the 53-man limit.

    Offensive tackle Greg Randall was released to make room for Pace, who signed his one-year, $7.02 million franchise tender on Sunday night.

    Also, the Rams promoted cornerback Dwight Anderson from their practice squad to the active roster. Linebacker Dedrick Roper, the former Pittsburgh Steeler signed earlier in the week, was released to make room for Anderson. Dedrick, we barely knew you.

    The move leaves the Rams with only five linebackers on their 53-man roster.

    Anderson, a rookie free agent from South Dakota, potentially will help a secondary that is thin at cornerback because of Travis Fisher's broken forearm. Anderson is fast, athletic, but very raw.

    The Rams have made seven changes to their active roster, involving 14 players, since last Sunday's "final" roster cuts.

    It was only a matter of time before Randall got cut.

        Yeah,only five LB's on the roster worries me as well.Our starting three are pretty solid,but if an injury should occur ,Well...we could be in deep trouble.I hope this is only a temporary situation.

          Not use to seeing all these roster moves this close to the season. Its almost like the staff wasn't ready for the beginning of the season. I just see it as all the injuries catching up with us. I sure hope our 5 LB's can hold up.

            Rams cut 5 as roster nears pre-camp limit

            BY KATHLEEN NELSON | Posted: Thursday, July 1, 2010

            The Rams have released five more players: running back DeMaundray Woolridge, defensive end James Wyche, linebacker K.C. Asiodu, defensive tackle Leger Douzable and center Clint Mower.

            Douzable appeared in 12 games last season, starting once and making 11 tackles.

            Asiodu appeared in 10 games and made eight tackles.

            Along with the release earlier of cornerback Danny Gorrer, the moves bring the roster down to 82 players. The number must be reduced to 80 by the time rookies report July 28.

            The New Orleans Saints acquired Gorrer off waivers. A rookie from Texas A&M, Gorrer played in three games and made one start, accumulating five tackles.

            Gordy Promoted To Active Roster

            Gordy promoted to active roster

            The revolving door at cornerback continues for the St. Louis Rams. The team has placed Tim Atchison on the injured reserve list with a hamstring injury and promoted Josh Gordy from the practice squad to the active roster to take Atchison's place.

            Gordy, 5-11, 195, entered the league in 2010 as an undrafted rookie with Jacksonville. He subsequently spent 10 weeks on Green Bay's practice squad, and then played in two late-season games for the Packers, recording one special teams tackle.

            After being released by the Packers at the end of this preseason, he was signed to the Rams' practice squad two weeks ago. A native of Augusta, Ga., Gordy was a four-year starter at Central Michigan.

            His brother, Christopher Edwards, was a linebacker at Georgia Tech. His cousin, Robert Edwards, was a first-round pick by New England in 1998 at running back. Another cousin, Berry Gordy, was the founder of the Motown record label.

            Gordy's spot on the practice squad has been filled with the Rams re-signing running back Chase Reynolds after a one-week hiatus.

            Font Size: Default font size Larger font size Share The St. Louis Rams reached the 75-man roster limit today by designating tackle Phil Trautwein as waived/injured.

            Trautwein suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in his knee last week in practice and is facing six to eight weeks of recovery time.

            Teams must reduce their rosters to 53 by 5 p.m. Saturday (St. Louis time).

            Trautwein, 6-foot-6 and 308 pounds, was an undrafted rookie out of Florida in 2009 who appeared in four games with the Rams.
