Rams pick up Jared Goff’s 5th-year option for 2020

THOUSAND OAKS — Three years ago, in a deal that forever altered the direction of the franchise, the Rams packaged six high draft picks to move up to No. 1 overall. It was a steep price to pay for the rights to a rookie quarterback. But after two seasons which included a Super Bowl berth, two division titles and more wins than any other NFL quarterback, it’s safe to say the price of trading for Jared Goff has been worth it. “We probably would’ve even given up an extra pick,” Rams general manager ...

NFL mock draft 3.0: Is Kyler Murray the Cardinals’ No. 1 choice?

The last days of smokescreens and pre-draft hot takes are upon us, as the 2019 NFL draft begins on Thursday. With the rumor mill spinning and the Cardinals nearly on the clock, here’s the third and final mock draft in our predraft series: 1. ARIZONA CARDINALS: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma | Previous mock: Same For weeks, this pick has seemed like a sure thing. Now, just days before the draft, the rumor mill is spinning.

Kartje: New leagues hope to pave alternative path for young NFL prospects

At the end of November of 1925, after three years spent dominating college football at the University of Illinois, Red Grange signed a contract with the Chicago Bears. It was decision without precedent in football’s brief history. For the fledgling NFL, which still lagged behind the college game in terms of popularity, it was a significant step towards legitimizing the league. For the star players that followed Grange, his signing – and the 67-day barnstorming tour that accompanied it – laid the...

Rams 2019 NFL draft needs: Defense a priority this time around

Since selecting Aaron Donald with the 13th overall pick in 2014, the Rams haven’t selected a single defensive player in the draft’s top 90 picks. In five years, the Rams have spent just one third-round pick (safety John Johnson) and two fourth-round picks (defensive end John Franklin-Myers and outside linebacker Samson Ebukam) on the defensive side of the ball. That focus is bound to shift before next week’s draft. After relying on free agency to stock their defense in recent years, the Rams’ ne...

Rams 2019 NFL draft needs: Depleted offensive line could use some help

As Sean McVay turned a hapless mess of an offense into a machine-like juggernaut over the past two seasons, the Rams wunderkind coach was fortunate to have unprecedented consistency along the offensive line. At the outset of Year 3, however, that’s no longer the case up front. Two of the Rams’ most consistent veteran linemen from a year ago have moved on, leaving the offense to count on two inexperienced interior linemen in their place. How McVay chooses to fill those holes up front – and whethe...

Rams ponder options for first 1st-round pick of McVay era

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Sean McVay led the Los Angeles Rams from the NFL’s depths to the Super Bowl in just two seasons, and he did it without a first-round pick in the first two draft classes of his tenure. The upcoming draft is the Rams’ first chance to add a truly elite talent […]

Rams’ Todd Gurley sheds little light on the condition of his knee

THOUSAND OAKS – As questions swirled around the uncertain status of his troublesome knee, Todd Gurley decided to get away this offseason. Coming off a Super Bowl loss, with a new contract in hand, the Rams star running back afforded himself some time off. His body needed it. And with a new contract extension, his wallet could handle it. “I finally got the money I deserved,” Gurley said on Monday. So late last month, he and some friends jetted across the world, celebrating the spoils of their new...

Vikings sign QB Sean Mannion, WR Jordan Taylor

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have signed former Los Angeles Rams quarterback Sean Mannion and ex-Denver Broncos wide receiver Jordan Taylor. Mannion will likely replace Trevor Siemian, who joined the New York Jets, as the primary backup to Kirk Cousins. Kyle Sloter will also be in the second-string mix. Mannion was a third-round […]

Kartje: Should the Rams trade out of the first round of the NFL draft?

Fourteen years ago, in a paper first published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, two economists posited that NFL teams had failed to understand the value of their top draft picks. Thousands of hours of work spent by scouting departments had made them overconfident in their own judgment. As such, these teams routinely overvalued their highest selections – and even made irrational deals to accumulate even higher picks, when it made far more sense to do the opposite. The NFL draft’s best...

Rams sued after fan allegedly attacked by another man at game

The Los Angeles Rams were sued this week by a fan who said he suffered an assault at a NFC conference matchup this past season. Peter Bergin’s Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, filed Tuesday, accuses the team and Contemporary Services Corp., which was contracted to provide security, of failing to protect the plaintiff during a Thursday night football game between the Rams and the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 27 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. “This was a highly anticipated game,” the suit ...

Rams free agency review: More departures than arrivals this time around

Compared to their last few offseasons, in which the Rams completely revamped their franchise from top to bottom, Les Snead understands this offseason might seem a bit anti-climactic. There were no blockbuster trades or big free-agent swings. By the Rams’ recent standards, the last few months have been especially quiet. “But I like to say that’s a good thing,” the Rams general manager assured reporters last month, “because all those things have kind of put us in a situation where we’ve got this f...

Rams late-season standout C.J. Anderson signs with Detroit Lions

When the Rams signed C.J. Anderson last December, the veteran running back had been cut three times over the past year. They viewed Anderson as insurance for an injured Todd Gurley. They had no idea Anderson would come to mean much more than that. In a matter of weeks, Anderson became a vital part of the Rams’ run to the Super Bowl. Now, a few months after their loss to the Patriots in Atlanta, he’s moving on. Anderson signed a one-year deal with the Lions on Monday, ending a five-month tenure w...

Richard Sherman says NFL will use pass interference replay to 'control the outcome as they see fit'

One sided game' It's a couple of days old now, but still worth noting that Sherman (and newly signed Los Angeles Rams safety Eric Weddle) are not in favor of the change. On Tuesday night, in response to a tweet by Pro Football Talk that the then-proposed change to let coaches ask for pass interference calls and non-calls to be reviewable had a good chance to get the needed “yes” votes, Sherman tweeted: “Sounds about right. One sided game.

Rams in no rush to extend Jared Goff

The Eagles are already discussing their plans to extend quarterback Carson Wentz, despite the uncertainties created by his injuries. The Rams are in no such hurry with a healthy Jared Goff.

Former Rams RB C.J. Anderson frustrated, feels disrespected in free agency

Former Rams running back C.J. Anderson just wants an opportunity to play 16 games, he said on Twitter Thursday, and feels disrespected in free agency. C.J. Anderson played a significant part in the Los Angeles Rams' postseason run last year — filling a much-needed hole after Todd Gurley went down with a knee injury and helping them secure the first-round playoff bye. Now, though, Anderson is a free agent — and he's not happy about it.

Rams keep RB Malcolm Brown by matching Lions’ offer

With the long-term status of their star running back’s knee still in question, the Rams chose to hang on to reserve running back Malcolm Brown, who had signed an offer sheet with the Lions earlier this week. In order to keep Brown, a restricted free agent, the Rams chose to match the Lions offer of $3.25 million over two years. He’ll return to the Rams backfield as insurance for Todd Gurley, who dealt with inflammation in his knee down the stretch last season and may see his workload reduced in ...
