Rams sign K Brett Maher and WR Tyler Johnson to active roster

After making three roster moves on Tuesday afternoon, the Los Angeles Rams made two more later in the day. They officially signed kicker Brett Maher, a move Sean McVay said was coming on Monday when he spoke to reporters.

The Rams also signed Tyler Johnson to the 53-man roster, so he’s been promoted from the practice squad. That could be an indication that they plan to rest some of their wide receivers in Week 18, namely Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp, who have been banged up throughout the season.

Johnson has not been active for a game with the Rams but he has a chance to be on the game day roster Sunday when they face the 49ers, especially if Los Angeles plans to limit Nacua and Kupp’s snaps.
