The Rams made the bulk of their roster moves on Monday, cutting 11 players to start the process of getting to 75 by the Tuesday afternoon deadline.
It’s not the first time Williams has tasted the axe from the Rams. The 2011 seventh-round pick was waived in October of his rookie year after playing two games and wound up on the Bears. He played five games there, failed to make the roster out of camp last year and wound up back on the Rams’ practice squad.
The play of three undrafted rookies — Ray Ray Armstrong, Daren Bates and Jonathan Stewart — helped make Williams expendable. With Jo-Lonn Dunbar suspended for the first four games of the season, it looks like the Rams will have a very young linebacker corps to start the year barring other moves to add players at the position.
Lee was signed in June after spending time with the Steelers and Saints.
