On Friday, the Los Angeles Rams announced that they signed offensive lineman Zachary Thomas off the Chicago Bears’ practice squad.

Thomas was the first of Chicago’s three sixth-round draft picks this year, and while he did make their opening 53-man roster, he was cut following a flurry of waiver wire moves prior to week one. The Bears brought him back to their practice squad on September 2 where he had been until today.

Thomas played tackle at San Diego State, but while playing for the Bears he received plenty of work at guard.

As a member of the practice squad Thomas was a free agent able to sign with any team, and now that he’s getting an opportunity in L.A. he’ll have to stay on their 53-man roster for three games. If he’s released his rights revert to Chicago.

What are your thought of the Bears losing Thomas to the Rams?
