In case you haven’t been paying attention, the LA Rams lost a reserve outside linebacker, Justin Lawler, to the Tennessee Titans in a somewhat surprising move. Surprising in that with the LA Rams projected attrition at edge rushers for the 2022 NFL season, many projections indicate at least one or two roster spots will open up on the active roster for the position in 2022. One surely seemed to be earmarked for Lawler in 2022.
Based on the fact that the LA Rams leaned so heavily upon Lawler in the early games of the 2021 NFL season, it seemed that he had the inside track to sign onto the LA Rams 53-man roster next year. He was activated for three games last year, spending time in a rotational role on defense as well as covering on special teams.
