The Los Angeles Rams officially waived WR J.J. Worton and LB Matthew Wells on Friday.
Worton originally signed on with the Rams back in December before the Patriots added him to their practice squad back in January. However, Worton was arrested a few weeks later in Foxborough, MA for allegedly assaulting a man and two women.
The Patriots wasted no time in waiving him following the incident.
Worton re-signed with the Rams following a tryout at their rookie minicamp.
During his four-year career at Central Florida, Worton recorded 168 receptions for 2,360 yards receiving and 21 touchdowns. He also contributed 740 punt return yards and returned a kickoff 22 yards for a touchdown.
Wells, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Patriots back in May of last year. He lasted just a few months in New England before he was traded to the Bears in return for G Ryan Groy.
Chicago elected to waive Wells at the start of the season and he later signed on to the Rams’ practice squad. Los Angeles elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract in January.
Wells has yet to appear in an NFL game.
