Change is a constant for the Rams offensive line, so even after they didn’t draft any last weekend, they cut one in the aftermath.

According to Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times, the Rams released backup offensive lineman David Arkin.

He played in two games for them last year, after making the move from St. Louis as a member of their practice squad. He’s also been with the Colts, Seahawks, Dolphins and Cowboys.

The Rams signed veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworth and center John Sullivan in free agency. They didn’t draft any linemen over the weekend, the second year in a row they didn’t.

  1. The Rams will never find out if Goff can be their franchise QB if they can’t protect him.

    It looks like he will be throwing nothing but quick slants next year as we will not have time to throw.

  2. Well if you want a solid O-line, you need to draft someone or else have deep pockets. Most free agents cost more than they are really worth and at or past their prime. I know this was a weak class for linemen but get a couple development projects. Maybe they signed a bunch of undrafted kids for this??

    They have drafted several lineman during the last couple drafts. It is one of the things coach Kromer has said he is looking forward to. Plenty of young players to work with. The Rams drafted 7 offensive lineman from 2015-2016(only 6 remain)

  4. The issue is player evaluation. Yes, they have drafted O-line over the years. Greg (the bust) Robinson and a
    bunch of mauler types that can’t pass defend. Then they trade the farm last draft to pick up Goof who’s not pro ready and came from a non pro style set in California. The franchise will continue to struggle as
    they stick with Snead and an unproven coach. Their most recent draft shows a GM who pleases a young coach by reaching for a bunch of add on’s failing to draft best player available or solid picks to build both lines. With the 2018 pick the Rams are on the clock.
