Rams Worked Out 15 Players Including Kickers Robert Aguayo & Younghoe Koo

     

According to Howard Balzer, the Los Angeles Rams worked out 10 kickers and four other special teams players on Wednesday.

The full list includes:

  1. K Roberto Aguayo
  2. K Dan Carpenter
  3. K Travis Coons
  4. K Andrew Franks
  5. K Garrett Hartley
  6. K Marshall Koehn
  7. K Younghoe Koo
  8. K Mike Meyer
  9. K Jason Myers
  10. K Sam Ficken
  11. LS Drew Ferris
  12. LS Jeff Overbaugh
  13. P Austin Rehkow
  14. P Matt Wile
  15. LB Jayrone Elliott

Of this group, the Rams signed Ficken to their active roster. The Rams were clearly looking at all their options due to the back injury that led to K Greg Zuerlein being placed on injured reserve.

Aguayo, 23, was selected with the No. 59 overall pick after the Buccaneers traded up to get him in 2016. He was in the second year of his four-year, $4.053 million contract and set to make a base salary of $634,208 for the 2017 season when the Buccaneers elected to cut Aguayo loose back in August.

The Bears later claimed Aguayo off of waivers, but unfortunately, waived him coming out of the preseason. The Panthers signed him to their practice squad a few months ago.

In 2016, Aguayo appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and converted 22 of 31 field goal attempts (71 percent) to go along with 32 of 34 extra point tries and 52 touchbacks.

Koo, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Southern back in May. He was set to make a base salary of $465,000 for the 2017 season when the Chargers waived him a few weeks ago and re-signed K Nick Novak.

In 2017, Koo has appeared in four games for the Chargers and converted just three of six field goal attempts and all nine extra point tries.
