The Los Angeles Rams may not pose a threat to the San Francisco 49ers in the standings this season, but that doesn’t mean they still can’t spoil things for their division rival.

The Rams were fourth in the NFL’s waiver priority list heading into today, and it appears as though neither of the three teams ahead of them have placed a claim for Baker Mayfield.
