Rams waive S Blake Countess, sign linebacker Josh Carraway

The Rams have waived safety Blake Countess at the start of phase two of the offseason program, but have expressed interest in bringing the three-year veteran back to Los Angeles, should he fit into the picture as the offseason carries on.


Countess was taken in the sixth round of the 2016 draft by the Eagles, who released the young defensive back in September of his rookie season. Countess was swiftly picked up by the Rams and then promoted to the club's active roster that November.

In three seasons as a Ram, Countess has appeared in 37 games and started in four. He moved from corner to safety in year two, where he recorded two interceptions, 25 tackles, and three passes defensed at the position.

Countess spent time as the primary kick returner in 2018. He fielded 17 kicks for an average of 24.6 yards per return.

Additionally, the Rams have signed former Tennessee and Washington linebacker Josh Carraway, who spent time on the practice squads of both teams.
