The Rams waived wide receiver and special teams ace Bradley Marquez from the team's injured reserve on Monday afternoon. Marquez had been dealing with a knee injury throughout much of training camp in July and was then waived by the team in early August with an injury designation. But after clearing waivers, he was placed on IR.
The former undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech first signed with the Rams in 2015. In the past two years he has played in 30 games for the Rams, establishing himself as an excellent contributor to the special teams unit — known specifically for his blocking and speed. He also made 16 receptions for 125 yards.
Though Marquez is reportedly 100 percent healthy, the wideout is now unable to sign with the Rams for the rest of the season. He is slated to become a restricted free agent this coming offseason.
