Safety Maurice Alexander has gone from the Rams starting lineup to their inactive list to off the team entirely in a pretty big hurry.

The Rams announced on Monday that they have waived Alexander. The move comes a day after Alexander, who started the first four games of this season and 19 games over the previous two years, was left on the inactive list for the team’s game against the Seahawks.

Rookie John Johnson had a strong game in his first NFL start, including an interception of Russell Wilson that he returned 69 yards to set up a field goal in the first half.

The Rams activated wide receiver Mike Thomas to fill the open roster spot. Thomas was suspended for the first four games of the season and his roster exemption was set to expire. Thomas had three catches for 37 yards as a rookie last year.

  1. Another crazy move by Snead. With many injuries throughout the NFL some team will need Alexander, and most likely the Rams. Afterall, the league is only through game 5.
    How about trading Austin or Thomas to the Giants? They need WR help badly and the Rams will need draft picks. The only thing the Rams are winning is another losing season can we predict 7-9.

  2. Rams will be below .500 by week 10. Seahawks played a meh game and won on the road. That’s not how these Rams games usually go. Keep trying to fill that stadium though.

  3. Would love a solid reason Alexander was waived. I actually liked his play. Maybe I missed something.
    We were robbed on the “Gurley Fumble” foot hit out before ball left hand. But thats another story.
    Can’t win a game if you miss short field goals and gift wrap turnovers.

    Rams will go 13-3 this year. And beyond.

    Go Rams
