Former Georgia Bulldogs star defensive back J.R. Reed has made Los Angeles Rams roster. Reed, a second-year safety, played in seven games for the Rams last season. He recorded a pair of tackles and played in the playoffs.

J.R. Reed will look to have a larger role for Los Angeles in 2021. For now, he is happy to make the Rams roster again.

Former UGA safety J.R. Reed did not get picked in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars in the moments following the draft. The Jaguars eventually cut Reed before the season. Later, he ended up in Los Angeles.

J.R. Reed was impressive at Georgia, but his injury history and lack of top-level athleticism contributed to him going undrafted.

In 2021, J.R. Reed is expected to have a special teams role for the Rams. He is a backup at safety behind projected starters Taylor Rapp and Jordan Fuller. The Rams don’t play many starters during the preseason.
