Rams Sign Four Players To Futures Deals

The Los Angeles Rams announced Wednesday that they’ve signed four players to futures contract for the 2019 season including: 

  1. DB Donte Deayon
  2. LB Travin Howard
  3. OT Kyle Murphy
  4. WR Austin Proehl

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Murphy, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Packers back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.4 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $720,000 for the 2019 season.

The Packers placed Murphy on injured reserve with a foot injury back in September and eventually cut him loose towards the end of the season. The Rams would sign him to their practice squad soon after. 

In 2017, Murphy appeared in three games for the Packers and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 54 offensive tackle out of 72 qualifying players.

Proehl, 23, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bills this past May. He agreed to a four-year, $2,529,070 contract with the Bills that included a $69,070 signing bonus, but was unfortunately waived coming out of the preseason.

Proehl had a brief stint on the Titans’ practice squad to open the season before eventually joining the Rams in October. 

During his four-year college career, Proehl caught 91 passes for 1,265 yards receiving and five touchdowns over the course of 38 games.
