The Los Angeles Rams are stacking Kupps.

On Wednesday, the team signed undrafted linebacker Ketner Kupp out of Eastern Washington University and reunited him with his older brother, Cooper, who has played wide receiver for the Rams since 2017. Cooper was drafted in the third round (69th overall) by the Rams, also out of Eastern Washington.

Ketner tried out for the San Francisco 49ers at the team's rookie minicamp early this month. He didn't land a contract but reunited with his brother 300-plus miles down the California coast.

Ketner, listed at 6'0" and 225 pounds by Eastern Washington, started 13 of his 33 career college games and tallied 152 tackles with 2.5 sacks. He also served as a co-captain as a senior in 2018.
