Rams waive Kareem Orr, officially lock in Travin Howard for 2022

With roster limits being 90 players during the offseason, the Rams have plenty of room in their building. But they don’t plan to have Kareem Orr around in 2022.

On Saturday, the Rams announced that they have waived Orr from the 90-man roster. He played two games last season, making four tackles but struggling in coverage when called into action against the Cardinals in Week 14.

In addition to waiving Orr on Saturday, the Rams also locked in Travin Howard for the 2022 season. He signed his restricted free agent tender, which will pay him $2.54 million.

As is the case with Matt Gay, the tender is not guaranteed so the Rams can move on from Howard at any time before Week 1 without penalty. Howard will likely be the third linebacker on the depth chart behind Bobby Wagner and Ernest Jones.
