The Los Angeles Rams once again needed to address their running back room. But this time, there was no need to make a trade.
The Rams instead had room for a past beloved member of their offense — and immediately lured him back in since he was available.
Announced at 12:13 p.m. Pacific on Thursday, September 22, the franchise announced the return of Malcolm Brown, who will be added to the practice squad.

Brown didn’t take long to get reacquainted with the L.A. media in his return to the Rams’ locker room.

“My agent called me and I was visiting back home in Texas. I had a missed call from my agent, but then somebody from here [the Rams] called me. I called them back and got everything rolling,” Brown said.
He’s also energized to be in the same backfield with Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson.
“They’re the same dudes. But you can tell the maturity in them. Just to see those guys and see them doing what they did last year and just being around them again, it’s fun being around that original crew,” Brown said. “I’ll tell you one thing: I’m so glad to be back here and being in this structure and this type of organization.
