Rams Roster Cuts: St. Louis Names Initial 53-Man Roster

The St. Louis Rams announced their 53-man roster Friday night, and they had to cut 20 players to get down to 53. Earlier on Friday the Rams announced 13 players who did not make the team, but now they released the other seven players.

The Rams waived quarterback Kellen Clemens, which means that the only quarterbacks on the team are Sam Bradford and his backup, which will be undrafted free agent Austin Davis, at least for the time being. There were other quarterbacks waived such as Brian Hoyer and Seneca Wallace, so those two could get a look at the backup spot.

Here are the 20 players who did no make the team:

• DT Cornell Banks
• C Tim Barnes
• QB Tom Brandstater
• DE Mason Brodine
• LB Aaron Brown
• LB Sammy Brown
• CB Kendric Burney
• DE Vernon Gholston
• FB Ben Guidugli
• TE Cory Harkey
• OL T-Bob Hebert
• DE Jamaar Jarrett
• WR Nick Johnson
• OT Joe Long
• G Bryan Mattison
• FB Ovie Mughelli
• TE Deangelo Peterson
• RB Chase Reynolds
• DE Scott Smith
• OL Jose Valdez
