The Los Angeles Rams had a rare 3-way kicker battle for the sole possession of being the team’s kicker this season. This battle included a CFL all-star in Lirim Hajrullahu, XFL star Austin MacGinnis and rookie seventh-round pick Sam Sloman. The Rams have reportedly made the decision to stick with the rookie out of Sean McVay’s alma mater per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Sloman was Miami OH’s kicker for three seasons in college and he made 49 out of 62 field-goal attempts while nailing 112 of his 115 extra-point attempts. Sloman will have big shoes to fill as he is the first kicker to replace Greg “the leg” Zuerlein who is most well known for sending the Rams to the Super Bowl in the 2018-19 season. This is a surprising move to say the least as Sloman was the least consistent kicker in the scrimmages but apparently, he did enough to win the coaching staff’s trust and ultimately the job over the more experienced and accurate kickers in camp.
