After placing Ochaun Mathis on injured reserve Friday, the Los Angeles Rams quickly filled his spot on the 53-man roster. The team announced it has signed cornerback Duke Shelley, who previously had stints with the Bears, Vikings and Raiders.
Shelley, 26, is entering his fifth NFL season and has started 11 games, appearing in 41 total across four seasons. The Raiders signed him back in March but he was cut this week as Las Vegas trimmed its roster down to 53.
Shelley came into the league as a sixth-round pick by the Bears in 2019 and has one career interception with 84 total tackles and 12 passes defensed.
In 11 games (five starts) with the Vikings last year, he had one interception and a career-high eight passes defensed.
