A few days before taking on the Chargers, the Rams have signed defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker.
Entering his sixth year in the NFL, Walker was originally signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Tulsa. He spent the first three years of his career with New Orleans, where he recorded his 3.5 career sacks.
Walker spent 2015 and 2016 with the Lions, where he was mainly used as a rotational player. He started eight games in 2016, including the Oct. 16 contest against the Rams. The previous year, Walker played the first four games of the season before a broken leg landed him on injured reserve.
The Rams had previously signed Walker in March, but released him in mid-June. He projects as a rotational player for Los Angeles.
As a corresponding roster move, the Rams have waived defensive tackle A.J. Jefferson.
