Rams Claim OT Ryan Pope Via Waivers

On Wednesday, the Rams added offensive line depth.

After yesterday’s flurry of transactions and an open roster spot available, the Los Angeles Rams claimed offensive tackle Ryan Pope off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Pope was signed by Arizona on August 4, before eventually releasing him on Tuesday. 

The 6-foot-7, 315-pound lineman has encountered a surplus of stops since his NFL career began as an undrafted free agent out of San Diego State. Since 2019, he's had stints with the Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Most recently in 2020, Pope was a part of the Packers' practice squad.

Rams vs. Raiders Prime Time Preview

Los Angeles will attempt to snap a six-game losing streak vs. a Raiders team who is showing signs of life with a chance to crash the playoff party.

However, Pope has yet to gather his first NFL snap in a regular season game. In college, he started games as a sophomore and finished his senior year as a staple among the Aztecs' front five, earning second-team all-Mountain West honors. 

As coach Sean McVay has already noted: significant starters and some reserves, will not play in the preseason games. The addition of Pope will offer depth at offensive tackle during the evaluation process of training camp and the preseason.
