A day after declaring that changes have to be made, Sean McVay is taking action following the Rams' 3-5 start. The team has waived safety and former third-round pick Terrell Burgess after two-plus seasons with the team. Burgess was cut loose after the Rams tried to trade him before the deadline, according to NFL Media. The Rams also released tight end Kendall Blanton, a three-year veteran who caught one touchdown on two receptions in four games this season with Los Angeles. 

The 104th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Burgess made just three starts in 30 regular-season games with the Rams. A stable on the Rams special teams units, Burgess saw defensive reps in just 14 of his games in Los Angeles. He started in one game this season, making a career-high nine tackles in the Rams' 22-10 loss in Dallas in Week 5.
