According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Bears, Packers, Ravens and Titans also placed waiver claims for Rams G Jamon Brown on Wednesday, but he wound up being claimed by the Giants, who had the higher waiver priority.
There was some early buzz that there could be trade interest in Brown, but it appears as though no one was willing to part with draft compensation to get him.
Either way, it’s rare to see this kind of interest in player hitting waivers midseason.
Brown, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Rams back in 2015. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3,250,974 contract that includes $754,816 fully guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $798,897 for the 2018 season.
The Rams elected to waive Brown on Tuesday to make room for Dante Fowler, who was acquired in a trade with the Jaguars.
Brown will be an unrestricted free agent in 2019.
In 2018, Brown has appeared in five games for the Rams.
