Former UL Standout Raymond Calais Signs with Los Angeles Rams
So the days of former U.L. Ragin Cajun football standout Raymond Calais being without an NFL team did not last long. Late last week we reported that Calais had been waived from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad. Sunday night, Calais tweeted out the good news that another NFL team was interested in his services.
The Breaux Bridge native had an impactful career for Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns. In fact, Calais finished his senior year in Lafayette with 886 yards on the ground and six touchdowns. Calais was also a featured weapon for Ragin Cajun's special teams too.
In fact, most pundits believe Calais's best chance to stick and stay with Los Angeles will be in the role of a special team specialist. From there, the coaches will see what other attributes this gifted Acadiana athlete has to offer.
Calais has been signed to the Rams 53-man roster. He was expected to have joined the team yesterday and could be on the field this Sunday when the Rams open the NFL season versus the Dallas Cowboys.
Calais signing to the Rams means that all three Ragin Cajun draft picks selected in the 2019 draft have made active rosters in the NFL. The other two Cajun athletes taken in the draft were Robert Hunt, selected in the second round by Miami, and Kevin Dotson who was chosen in the fourth round by Pittsburgh.
