The Rams are taking a look at an offensive lineman who was drafted with a pick included in the Percy Harvin trade.

Offensive guard Travis Bond, whom the Panthers let go on Monday, has been awarded to St. Louis on waivers, according to the NFL’s transaction log.

A North Carolina product, Bond (6-6, 330) was a seventh-round selection of the Vikings in 2013. The Panthers signed Bond from Minnesota’s practice squad in November, and he appeared in two regular season games for Carolina, playing six snaps (four offense, two special teams).

Bond primarily played right guard in college, but he also made a handful of starts at right tackle, and positional versatility would probably help his cause in making the Rams’ roster.

  1. “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” I’ve never been of reserve guard Brandon Washington. I can only presume that Rams are always seeking to upgrade the O-line, will take a look. The team seems to prefer versatility to “specialists.” If Bond can do the job, he’ll make the squad. My bet is that McCray was unable to play up under down the line.
