The Los Angeles Rams announced that they have placed nine players on the COVID-19/reserve list. The team also signed veteran DB Greg Stroman to their practice squad.
The full list of players being placed on the list is as follows:
- T Tremayne Anchrum
- DB Antoine Brooks
- G Bobby Evans
- DB Jake Gervase
- LB Von Miller
- LB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo
- DB Kareem Orr
- LB Troy Reeder
- LB Christian Rozeboom
Miller, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2011. After playing out his rookie deal, Denver picked up his fifth-year option and later used their franchise tag on Miller.
The Broncos signed Miller to a six-year, $114 million extension in 2016 with $70 million guaranteed. He made $18 million in 2020 with $6 million fully guaranteed and count $25.625 million against the cap.
Denver officially picked up Miller’s option last year and again in 2021 at a figure of $18 million. However, the Broncos traded Miller to the Rams at the deadline for second and third-round picks while also eating most of his remaining salary.
In 2021, Miller has appeared in 11 games for the Broncos and Rams and recorded 32 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and a pass deflection.
Stroman, 25, was drafted by Washington in the seventh round out of Virginia Tech in 2018. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2.5 million rookie deal when Washington released him during training camp.
Stroman most recently was a member of the Bills practice squad before being let go by the team.
In 2018 as a rookie, Stroman appeared in 15 games and recorded 38 total tackles, one interception, and four pass defenses.
