The Rams have had huge issues with kickers this season and thought they found a keeper in Lucas Havrisik. But they are starting to believe that it is good to have backup plans. This would probably explain the latest move the team has made in the last 24 hours.
After not getting resigned by the Green Bay Packers in the offseason, Mason Crosby is making a return to the NFL as the Rams have signed him to their practice squad. Crosby was lights out for the Packers, going 24-of-25 inside 50 yards, but he was knocked out on kicks longer than 50 last season, going 1-of-4.
This has indeed been a trying season for the Rams. As they look to keep themselves in the playoff conversation, they have made some major changes, including signing former Eagle Carson Wentz to backup Matthew Stafford, who has been bothered by injury this season. The team has found new life during its three-game win streak with the return of Kyren Williams to the roster from IR.
They have also found success in finding someone who could be the steal of the draft as well as the successor of Cooper Kupp in the event he chooses to return or sign elsewhere in Puka Nacua. No matter the circumstances, the Rams are just trying to put forth some effort to show that they are looking to turn the corner. With a record of 6-6, they head to Baltimore this weekend to take on the Ravens, and there is no true telling what could happen in that game. But maybe Crosby can become an additional spark to a team still trying to find their own identity a few years after winning the Super Bowl.
