Rams Add Depth with Four Free Agents

Posted Jun 7, 2016

The Rams have DT Cam Thomas, QB Dylan Thompson, RB Terrence Magee, and TE Benson Browne. The club also made four corresponding moves to keep the roster at 90.

The Rams have added some depth pieces to their roster, signing four free agents to start the second week of OTAs.

Los Angeles signed defensive tackle Cam Thomas, quarterback Dylan Thompson, tight end Benson Browne, and running back Terrence Magee.

Originally drafted by the Chargers in the fifth round of the 2010 draft, Thomas has played in 85 games over his NFL career, starting 25. He played his first four years in San Diego, registering 6.0 sacks. He then signed with the Steelers in 2014, appearing in 31 games over the last two seasons mainly as a rotational player.

Thomas, who turns 30 on Dec. 12, likely figures in as a similar rotational piece for Los Angeles.

Thompson, Browne, and Magee recently had workouts with the Rams and each were impressive enough to catch on with the club.

Thompson spent 2015 with the 49ers after signing with the club as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina. In his senior season, Thompson led the SEC in yards passing with 3,564. Thompson also played with Rams rookie receiver Pharaoh Cooper in college.

Magee bounced between the Ravens active roster and practice squad throughout the 2015 season after signing with the club as a UDFA out of LSU. He recorded two carries in his limited playing time. Baltimore waived Magee in May.

Browne is a rookie, having played his college ball at N.C. State where he was mainly a blocking tight end.

For their corresponding roster moves, the Rams have waived wide receiver Kain Colter and linebacker Zack Hodges. Defensive tackle Doug Worthington has also been released.

And wide receiver Stedman Bailey has also been waived with a non-football injury distinction. Head coach Jeff Fisher is scheduled to speak with the media after tomorrow’s OTA practice, and will likely address Bailey’s situation.
