The Rams trimmed their offseason roster by two Friday, waiving linebacker Matthew Wells and wide receiver J.J. Worton.

Wells was a sixth-round pick of the Patriots in 2015 and was traded to the Bears during his first training camp. He was waived by the Bears and eventually landed on the practice squad with the Rams before signing a futures contract with the Rams in January.

Worton’s second stint with the Rams lasted just over a month. Worton was arrested on charges that he assaulted a man and two women at a Foxborough, Massachusetts bar last January. He was also accused of groping both women and then knocking out one of their boyfriends.

The Patriots dropped him from their practice squad after that incident. He’d spent some time with the Rams last season before heading to New England, and the Rams signed him again last month after he participated in their minicamp as a tryout player.
