Report: Los Angeles Rams sign former Hamilton Tiger-Cats K Lirim Hajrullahu


The Los Angeles Rams could have found their replacement for Legatron north of the border.

Los Angeles agreed to terms with CFL star kicker Lirim Hajrullahu, the team announced on Monday.

The Rams also announced that they have reached an agreement with former XFL kicker Austin MacGinnis. The team needs a next kicker Greg Zuerlein signing a three-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys last month.

Hajrullahu, 27, has spent the past two seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who released him in January to take advantage of NFL opportunities.

Last season, Hajrullahu was 47 years old for 55 field placement attempts, his longest at 56 meters.

Born in Kosovo and raised in St. Catharines, Ontario, Hajrullahu signed with the Winnipeg Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2014.

After two years with the Bombers, Hajrullahu signed with the Toronto Argonauts in 2016 and would kick the winner of the 2017 Gray Cup.

In six seasons in the CFL, Hajrullahu has managed 239 of his 287 FGAs.
