The Rams got younger at receiver by releasing Eddie Kennison. The Seahawks dumped one young receiver for another, releasing Courtney Taylor and signing Jordan Kent from the practice squad. Meanwhile, former Seahawks running back Justin Forsett hit the market when the Colts released him after three games.

Look for the Rams to sign receiver Derek Stanley from the practice squad. The team had signed Kennison because he knew the offense and had worked under offensive coordinator Al Saunders in Kansas City. Stanley is younger and figures to get a shot under new coach Jim Haslett.

Taylor struggled for the Seahawks when pushed into a prominent role this season. He also does not project as a return specialist, one reason Michael Bumpus has managed to stick around. Kent's promotion comes after the team found out Deion Branch could miss time with a heel injury.

Update: As kylejs101 noted in the comments, the Rams brought back Kennison after finding out Dane Looker might not be ready to play. Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has the story.
