Rams new head coach Scott Linehan got a chance to experience what many head coaches feel is the worst part of the job. Linehan had to tell a few players that it was nice to have them in camp, but there services were no longer needed.

The cuts came in time for the NFL deadline for rosters to meet the 75 player maximum. St. Louis released wide receiver Jeremy Carter, running back Antoine Bagwell, tight end Rod Trafford, defensive tackle Jeremy Calahan, kicker Remy Hamilton, offensive tackle Adam Haayer, cornerback Kevin Timothee, and linebacker Drew Wahlroos.

In addition, offensive guard Claude Terrell was placed on the injured reserved. Terrell is scheduled to have season ending wrist surgery.
