The Los Angeles Rams cut a notable quarterback on Monday as they get down to 80 players prior to Tuesday’s roster deadline.
Los Angeles has waived 25-year-old quarterback Duck Hodges.
Hodges, who played collegiately at Samford, went undrafted coming out of college in 2019. He spent the 2019-20 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Hodges made six starts for Pittsburgh in 2019, throwing for 1,063 yards, five touchdowns and eight interceptions.
The Rams signed Hodges to a reserve/future contract this past January.
On Monday, the NFC West franchise cut ties with the young quarterback.
