Dielman, 23, was selected with the No. 176 overall pick by the Bengals in this year’s NFL draft. He signed a four-year contract worth $2,819,648, which includes a signing bonus of $201,944.
However, the Bengals elected to cut him loose coming out of the preseason and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Rams. Los Angeles cut Dielman loose on Tuesday.
Dielman earned second-team All-Pac 12 honors in 2015.
