The Los Angeles Rams complete their 53-man roster by adding former Denver Bronco LB Justin Hollins. The announcement came this morning via the Rams’ official Twitter account.

Hollins was selected in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. The Oregon standout did draw some interest from the Rams last season. What’s particularly intriguing is Hollins’s versatility to play outside and inside linebacker.

The Rams before the signing only had three inside linebackers on the roster. While it hasn’t been confirmed how the Rams plan on using Hollins, it could hurt to have another back up on the roster.

Hollins didn’t make a huge impact last season with the Broncos. He earned 21 total tackles and a sack in 15 games.

The Rams may have a 53-man roster, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are done with making adjustments. The Rams will still have to wait and see the extent of the injury that rookie Terrell Lewis sustained. He’s already been deemed out for the Week 1 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.
