The Arizona Cardinals career for Marqui Christian is over… for now.

The rookie fifth round pick, selected by Adrian Wilson, was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Rams and will be on their active roster for at least a couple of weeks.

The Arizona Cardinals had allegedly planned to put Christian on their practice squad if he made it through waivers, but the Rams, who have their own hard hitting safety in T.J. McDonald, as well as their own version of a $LB in Mark Barron, probably like the upside and athleticism of Christian.

They probably also want to pump Christian for some information, although let’s be honest, through two games, there hasn’t been a magic formula needed in order to best the Arizona Cardinals.

The Rams had the 24th spot on the waiver claims, so it was close for the Arizona Cardinals getting the rookie back, but he is on to Los Angeles. Good luck with everything Marqui, except against the Cardinals.
