  • The battle to fill Greg Zuerlein's shoes has produced a winner, and he hails from a place his head coach might consider to be home. Sam Sloman is expected to take over the kicking job in Los Angeles, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per sources informed of the situation. A seventh-round pick out of Miami (Ohio) -- coach Sean McVay's alma mater -- Sloman out-kicked former CFL all-star Lirim Hajrullahu and Alliance of American Football and XFL product Austin MacGinnis. They both were waived, Pelissero reported. The 5-foot-8, 205-pound Sloman made 49 of 62 field goal attempts (79 percent) and 97.4 percent of his extra point attempts while booting for the Oxford, Ohio-based Redhawks. Sloman was the third and final kicker selected in April's draft. The Rams also announced they have waived the following players ahead of the 53-man roster deadline: DB Adonis Alexander, LB Daniel Bituli, TE Kendall Blanton, C Cohl Cabral, G Jamil Demby, WR Earnest Edwards, DB Jake Gervase, DB Juju Hughes, RB John Kelly, G Jeremiah Kolone, WR J.J. Koski, DB Dayan Lake, DB Tyrique McGhee, LB Derrick Moncrief, WR Easop Winston.
