Rams Waiving K Sam Ficken


According to Adam Schefter, the Rams are waiving K Sam Ficken on Tuesday and intend to sign another veteran kicker to fill in until Greg Zuerlein is recovered from his groin injury.

Ficken, 25, wound up signing on with the Jaguars in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State. He lasted just over a month in Jacksonville before he was waived during the first round of roster cuts.

After a brief stint with the Chiefs, Ficken joined the Rams towards the end of last season after Zuerlein suffered a season-ending injury. Los Angeles brought Ficken back on an exclusive rights contract, but he was waived coming out of the preseason.

The Rams re-signed Ficken after Zuerlein suffered an injury a few weeks ago.

In 2018, Ficken has appeared in two games for the Rams and converted 1 of 3 field goal attempts and all 10 of his extra point tries.
