Just when we thought the Los Angeles Rams had finished up moving around pieces at least for today Tom Pelissero of NFL Network confirms that the Rams have poached and signed Buccaneers seventh-round RB Raymond Calais right off of their practice squad.
Fastest poaching in NFL history? The #Rams are signing rookie RB Raymond Calais to their 53-man roster off Tampa Bay’s practice squad, per source.

Calais was at one point expected to make the team but that was before the Buccaneers acquired Leonard Fournette. Calais finished his college career at Louisiana Lafayette with 1,845 yards on 236 carries and 15 touchdowns. As a returner though, Calas took back 99 kicks for 2,493 yards and two touchdowns.
The Rams now have 54 players on the roster and will have to make a roster move in correspondence.
