Here’s the Rams updated practice squad:

  1. TE Kendall Blanton 
  2. DT Marquise Copeland
  3. DB Donte Deayon  
  4. G Jamil Demby
  5. DT Michael Hoecht
  6. WR J.J. Koski  
  7. DB Tyrique McGhee
  8. LB Derrick Moncrief
  9. QB Bryce Perkins
  10. LB Christian Rozeboom
  11. DE Jonah Williams
  12. DB J.R. Reed
  13. G Jeremiah Kolone
  14. DT Eric Banks
  15. K Austin MacGinnis
  16. DB Jake Gervase  
  17. OLB Jachai Polite

Polite, 22, was selected in the third round out of Florida by the Jets in 2019. Polite struggled during the pre-draft process, which led to him falling to the third round, even though he was considered to be one of the top edge rusher prospects.

He signed a four-year, $4,218,191 contract that includes a $1,118,194 signing bonus with the Jets. However, New York waived Polite coming out of the preseason and he later signed on to the Seahawks’ practice squad. Seattle released him after a few weeks and he caught on with the Rams.

In 2020, Polite has appeared in 11 games for the Rams and recorded three total tackles and one sack.
