Coons, 25, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Washington back in. Tennessee waived him at the start of the season but later signed a futures contract with the Browns.
Cleveland re-signed him as an exclusive rights free agent in April of 2016 but was waived during the preseason. Coons signed a deal with the Rams, but eventually cut him loose. The team re-signed him but waived him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit.
Los Angeles signed him to their practice squad last week.
In 2016, Coons converted 28 of 32 field goal attempts (87.5 percent) and 22 of 24 extra point attempts (91.7 percent).
