The Los Angeles Rams are in their final stretch of training camp, which does involve making roster decisions to help offset key injuries or begin clearing room.

On the afternoon of Thursday, August 4, the Rams made the decision to do both — which included adding a wide receiver known to be a “vertical threat” while also making a roster decision on a towering option on offense.

WR Added in Wake of Key Injury

Who did the Rams sign? Austin Trammell, who was previously with the Atlanta Falcons. And the player who received the waive/injury label: Kyle Markway, tight end.

Beginning with Trammell, he arrives to the “Rams House” in the wake of Van Jefferson dealing with a knee ailment. Jefferson underwent minor surgery that “went really well” per The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue. Jefferson could still be on track to play for the September 8 season opener versus the visiting Buffalo Bills to kick off the 2022 season.

Meanwhile, Trammell was once described as a “legitimate vertical threat” by the website NFL Draft Buzz, saying how he “Does a nice job locating and tracking deep passes and is a legitimate vertical threat. Willing to go up and attack the ball,” plus added how Trammell “Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback’s best friend — passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he’ll come down with it.”

However, the former Rice University wideout was timed at 4.63 in the 40-yard dash, which eventually help hurt his draft stock. NFL Draft Buzz also pointed out his weaknesses:

“Has only average height and overall length. Lacks initial burst off the line of scrimmage and has more build-up speed than track wheels. Limited explosiveness and flexibility and will struggle to separate against pro defensive backs,” the scouting report said. Plus also feared “NFL defenders may be able to knock him off his route because of his slight frame.”

Trammell, though, has been seen winning foot races before — notably in October 2020 versus Southern Miss:

Trammell is still entering a crowded WR room inside the “Rams House.” Of course, Cooper Kupp is the leader of that club house, followed by newcomer Allen Robinson and Jefferson once he’s healthy. The Rams also have return ace Brandon Powell, who head coach Sean McVay spoke highly of after the Monday, August 1 practice by telling the L.A. media how he is “capable of not only being a really good returner, but a capable wide receiver.”

The rest of the crew consists of 2021 second rounder Tutu Atwell, 2021 fourth round selection Jacob Harris (injured his groin during Thursday’s practice per Rodrigue and could miss a couple of weeks), seventh rounder from that same class Ben Skowronek and undrafted wideouts Landen Akers and J.J. Koski.

Who Was Markway?

Markway was a 6-foot-4, 250-pound tight end who first made his way to the Rams as a practice squad member in July 2021.

It’s not the first time Markway was waived by the Rams — as the team first announced that decision back on August 24, 2021.

Markway then made a brief pit stop with the Cleveland Browns, signing with the team on August 25, 2021. But he was waived six days later.

He eventually made his way back to the Rams after being claimed off waivers. Markway was on a reserves/future contract with the Rams.

The Rams TE room now consists of Tyler Higbee, Brycen Hopkins, Roger Carter Jr., Jared Pinkey and Kendall Blanton.

Jayson Tatum Sounds Off on Current Celtics Roster

Getty Robert Williams, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart, and Al Horford of the Boston Celtics.

The Boston Celtics have done a great job of responding to their loss in the NBA Finals, where the Golden State Warriors took them down in six games. Brad Stevens acted quickly, signing Danilo Gallinari in free agency and made a massive trade for combo guard Malcolm Brogdon.

Next season, they will look to improve upon their season from last year and win it all. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will hope to continue in their development and take the Celtics all the way. However, trade rumors have completely taken over the offseason.

Reports have indicated that the Celtics have taken a potential interest in trading for Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant. And although adding Durant to the mix could help the Celtics’ title chances, Tatum is confident in their current group.

“It’s not a ‘for sure’ thing, you know. You have to put in the work. You have to take the right steps,” Tatum said in an interview with Jared Weiss of The Athletic. “But I’m positive that we got the right group that will buy in, and we can’t look past anything and just try to coast our way to the finals. We gotta start from training camp. We gotta start from Day 1.”

Jayson Tatum is confident the Celtics are ready to hang an 18th championship banner this season.

"We got this close, and we added two really good players. I think it makes us better."

This current Celtics roster was just two wins away from winning the NBA Finals, and it’s clear that Tatum believes they can make it all the way. Only this time around, he wants them to start off strong from the get-go.

In addition, Tatum talked about where he is at as a player and what he needs to do moving forward.

Tatum: ‘That’s Where I’m At’

During his interview with Weiss, Tatum said that he already knows he’s one of the best players in the league, but at the same time, he’s aware that there are plenty of areas he can improve in.

“(I learned) that I’m 24 and one of the best players in the world and that I will compete against whoever and take on that challenge,” Tatum told Weiss. “In that same breath, I feel like there’s so much I could be better at, and I think that’s the exciting part. That I’m at where I’m at, where there’s so much more I can be, so much more I can learn and so many more experiences to go through.”

This past season, Tatum made the All-NBA First Team for the first time in his career. In 76 total games this past year, Tatum averaged 26.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 4.4 assists on 45.3% shooting from the field and 35.3% shooting from behind the three-point line.

And as far as what he’s doing to stay in shape, Tatum said that he’s fully focused on improving his body.

Tatum: ‘Make Sure You’re Built for That Stretch’

The Celtics superstar admitted that he’s doing his best to prepare for the marathon that is the NBA season, and in order to do that, he and his trainer, Nick, are taking care of his body.

“Because I pride myself on playing every game — that they let me — that comes from being in the weight room, doing all the things I do with Nick,” Tatum stated. “Taking care of my body, changing my diet a little bit, because going to the finals is another two months added to the season. So, you want to make sure that you’re built for that stretch.”

Not only is Tatum confident in his teammates, but it also sounds like he should be in the best shape of his career next year.
