Los Angeles Rams Sign Grant Haley To Practice Squad

Former Penn State football star Grant Haley has signed with the Los Angeles Rams’ practice squad, the team announced Wednesday.

This comes two months after he was waived by the New Orleans Saints prior to the 2021 NFL season.

The new Rams defensive back had stints with the New York Giants, who signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State, and the New Orleans Saints. Last season, in the Saints’ week 17 matchup, Haley picked up his first career NFL interception against Teddy Bridgewater’s Carolina Panthers.

In 47 games with Penn State, Haley recorded 139 tackles, five interceptions, and two sacks. He was also named a captain in his senior season and earned two All-Big Ten honorable mentions over his career.

Most Nittany Lions fans will likely remember him from his electric 71-yard touchdown return after a blocked field goal in the final minutes against Ohio State in 2016.

Haley will attempt to play his way onto the active roster for the third time in his NFL career.
