ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — The St. Louis Rams waived 11 players Monday, including two with local connections.

The list includes: K/P Brett Baer, WR Demetrius Fields, WR Andrew Helmick, LS Jorgen Hus, QB Tim Jenkins, DT Al Lapuaho, LB Joseph Lebeau, TE Colby Prince, WR Raymond Radway and CB Robert Steeples. In addition, OL Graham Pocic was waived/injured.

Andrew Helmick played at Lindenwood University (2009-12). Robert Steeples played for DeSmet Jesuit High School (2004-08) and the University of Missouri (2008-11) before transferring to the University of Memphis.

“He worked very hard”, Coach Jeff Fisher said about Steeples. “He’s got some athletic ability and such, and he’s really a pleasant young man to be around. It just didn’t work out.”

The Rams must make three more transactions by Tuesday afternoon in order to reach the NFL-mandated 75-player roster limit. All teams must be at 53 players by the evening of Saturday, August 31. 700 football players will lose their jobs.

“Every single one of those guys that came in early left here a much better football player than they were when they got there. We praised them for that and their effort, focus, their cooperation with club rules – all those things. It was a great group of young guys”, Fisher told reporters after practice on Monday.
