Sam Sloman Jersey

After losing Greg Zuerlein to the Cowboys in free agency, the Los Angeles Rams took a little time to find a potential replacement. And then on the same day, they agreed to terms with two kickers from different leagues: Lirim Harjullahu of the CFL and Austin MacGinnis of the XFL.

But it’s possible neither of them actually replaces Greg Zuerlein. The Rams still have the draft as a chance to add another kicker, and it seems they’re showing interest in one of the top prospects in the class.

According to Justin Melo of Draft Wire, the Rams are showing interest in Miami (Ohio) kicker Sam Sloman.

In his career at Miami, Sloman made 49 of his 62 field goal attempts, a rate of 79%. He also made 112 of his 115 extra-point tries (97.4%). Last season was by far his best year, making 86.7& of his FG attempts, including an impressive 11-for-14 rate from beyond 40 yards.

The Rams have emphasized the importance of a kicker’s accuracy from 40-49 yards after Zuerlein went just 5-for-11 last year, and Sloman was 12-for-15 in his career from that range.
