Cameron Dicker received some unfortunate news when the Los Angeles Rams announced he has been waived from their roster.
The former Texas Longhorn was previously listed as a punter on the Rams roster.
He was battling former New York Giant Riley Dixon for the starting punter position.
Dixon, 28, has seen his share of highs and lows when it comes to punting. His best season came in 2018 when he averaged 46.1 yards per punt. His worst year came last fall when he averaged a mere 44.4.
Dicker is expected to not have difficulty finding a new team.
Dicker spent four seasons as the Longhorns’ kicker. He took over punting duties in 2020 after former Texas punter Ryan Bujcevski went down with a torn ACL. Dicker remained as the kicker and punter in his final season at Texas.
