The Los Angeles Rams have banned linebacker Justin Hollins from the Denver Broncos.

The Rams put Hollins in last place on Sunday.

Hollins will be reunited in Los Angeles with Brandon Staley, the Broncos' outside linebacker coach last season. Ram manager Sean McVay hired Staley as his defensive coordinator earlier this year.

The Broncos did without Hollins on Saturday. He was a fifth election from Oregon in 2019.

Hollins played in 15 games for Denver as a backup linebacker and in special teams last season, recording 19 tackles and one sack.

The 6-foot-5 Hollins served as both full-backs and center-backs in Denver last season. During the Broncos' training camp that summer, he switched to the inside linebacker to solve depth problems.

The Rams seem in need of another insider linebacker after keeping just three relatively inexperienced players in place on their squad cutdown day: Micah Kiser, Troy Reeder, and Kenny Young.

Hollins was Myles Garrett's high school teammate in Texas. He was the defensive MVP of the East-West Shrine Game last year.
