One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. That is exactly how the Rams felt when they found out the Seahawks released linebacker and special teamer Isaiah Kacyvenski.
The seven-year veteran out of Harvard started at linebacker for Seattle in past years. He is among the league’s best in special teams play, serving as special teams captain this year.
The need for a player like Kacyvenski became more apparent when Rams fullback Paul Smith went down with a concussion and eye injury. Smith was the best special teams player St. Louis had. Special teams play has been a weakness of the Rams for several years. Az-Zahir Hakim was really the last threat inside the Edward Jones Dome. Last week, Lions return man Eddie Drummond racked up 210 yards including returns of 41 and 65.
