The Los Angeles Rams waived S Brian Randolph with an injury designation on Monday and signed S Michael Caputo to a contract, per Myles Simmons.
Should Randolph clear waivers tomorrow, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list.
Rams HC Jeff Fisher announced Sunday that Randolph suffered a torn ACL and would subsequently miss the entire 2016 season, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
“It’s very unfortunate for him,” Fisher said of Randolph, via TheRams.com. “Fortunately for him, he’s gone through it before. So we’ll tuck him away, we’ll give him an opportunity to compete next year.”
Randolph, 23, went undrafted out of Tennessee before signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Rams. He was set to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.
During his college career at Tennessee recorded 306 tackles, four forced fumbles, a recovery, eight interceptions and 13 pass defenses.
Caputo wound up going undrafted out of Wisconsin back in May before signing on with the Saints a few days later. Unfortunately, Caputo lasted just a few weeks in New Orleans before he was waived.
During his four-year college career at Wisconsin, Caputo recorded 244 tackles, 1.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, five recoveries, three interceptions and 17 pass defenses.
