Rams claim DB Darious Williams off waivers

The Rams have given up 62 points over the last two weeks and they added a new player to the defensive roster on Monday.

The team announced that defensive back Darious Williams has joined the team via a waiver claim. There’s no corresponding move needed because the Rams only had 52 players on their roster.

Williams was waived by the Ravens over the weekend when Baltimore restored cornerback Jimmy Smith to the roster after his suspension. Williams made the Ravens out of camp as an undrafted rookie and played 26 special teams snaps in three regular season appearances.

Williams is likely ticketed for a similar special teams/reserve role if he’s active for the Rams, although they could try different things in the coming weeks if the defense doesn’t tighten up.

  1. This guy showed off in the slot during training camp, I’m surprised BB missed this one.

    Rams defense got steamrolled by the Seahawks offensive line. Aren’t there anymore high priced pro bowlers they can add to shore that up?”

    Helps when the OL is holding so obviously, tha they’re literally hugging Donald on every play.

    Yea right.

    More to do with Marcus Peters feet stuck in the turf and the injury to Talib.

    5-0 feels better than 2-3.

  5. LA spent all that money on DB’s and still desperate? Well, I give them credit for going all in, and going for it on 4th and 1. Dallas, not so much!

    Someone isn’t paying attention. Every OL player on every team grabs the shoulder pads on every defensive rusher. It’s so obvious a hold, but somehow today that’s called blocking. Years before that was a hold and flagged every time a ref saw it.

  7. The Rams are 5 and 0. They were close to scoring on the last play of the game, but chose to run out the clock instead. They still have some defensive problems to iron out, especially because of injuries, and missing they’re field goal kicker, but are still winning.
