The Los Angeles Rams announced Thursday that they’ve elevated RB Malcolm Brown and DE Earnest Brown to their active roster for their game against the Raiders.
Brown, 29, signed on with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Texas back in 2015. He was promoted from their practice squad later that year.
Los Angeles re-signed him to a one-year exclusive rights contract in the 2018 offseason. The Rams tendered Brown as a restricted free agent in 2019, then matched the Lions’ two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet to keep Brown.
As an unrestricted free agent in 2021, Brown signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins but was later placed on injured reserve. He signed a deal to join the Saints during the 2022 offseason but was cut in August and eventually returned to the Rams this offseason.
However, he was waived last month and added to their practice squad.
In 2022, Brown has appeared in six games for the Rams and rushed for 34 yards on 14 carries (2.4 YPC) to go along with two receptions for 23 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
