Jalen Ramsey wants Rams to make Darius Slay trade

Jalen Ramsey has never been shy about voicing what he wants through the media, and he wants to play with another shutdown corner. The Los Angeles Rams cornerback suggested that his team acquire Darius Slay from the Detroit Lions, adding that he was only having fun making the suggestion. Slay certainly seemed into the idea. Given the Rams’ cap issues and the fact that Slay will be expecting a big contract extension, this isn’t really a likely outcome. What is clear is Slay is available...

Darius Slay: Playing alongside Jalen Ramsey 'would be so unfair'

The Los Angeles Rams have never been afraid to make a bold move, as evidenced by their trades for Sammy Watkins, Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib, Brandin Cooks and Jalen Ramsey over the last three years alone. Could they make another blockbuster deal for Darius Slay this offseason? The Lions are shopping their star cornerback, discussing trades with teams. Jalen Ramsey has heard the rumors and is aware of Slay’s situation, and he would apparently love if the Rams acquired him. He shared this...

What should the Rams do with their three restricted free agents?

For the Los Angeles Rams, most of the attention is being paid to the 10 unrestricted free agents set to hit the market next month – including five key starters. But what gets lost somewhat in the shuffle are the three restricted free agents who are also on expiring contracts. Morgan Fox, Donte Deayon and JoJo Natson have all accrued only three seasons in the NFL and are considered restricted free agents, which makes it easier for the Rams to retain them. But how interested is Los Angeles...

Report: Austin Blythe expected to test free-agent market

All offseason, we’ve talked about the Rams’ big four free agents: Cory Littleton, Dante Fowler Jr., Andrew Whitworth and Michael Brockers. However, there’s a fifth starter who’s also set to hit the market. Austin Blythe was excellent for the Rams in 2018 and while he regressed last season, he stepped up by showing he can play guard and center – performing better at the latter. He’ll also be a free agent next month and Los Angeles may not be able to keep him in horns. According...

If Rams are going to move on from Brandin Cooks, the clock is ticking

After his first season without 1,000 yards receiving since his rookie year in 2014, questions have surfaced about Brandin Cooks’ future with the Los Angeles Rams. He had just 42 catches for 583 yards and two touchdowns last season, averaging career-lows in receptions per game and yards per game. He missed two contests due to concussions last season, which limited his availability on the field and his time in practice. Those absences paired with a reduction in targets (117 in 2018 to 72 in...

NFL combine press conference schedule for Sean McVay, Les Snead

It hasn’t been long since Sean McVay last spoke to the media, doing so during the introductory press conference for the Rams’ new coordinators a couple weeks ago. But he’ll be taking the podium again next week, this time in front of a much larger audience. The NFL released its schedule for coach and general manager press conferences at the combine, and both McVay and GM Les Snead are slated to speak on Tuesday. McVay will be the first of the two to go, holding his presser at 11:45 a.m....

Rams 2020 free agency preview: Is Mike Thomas' time up in L.A.?

Mike Thomas has played his entire career with the Rams after being drafted in the sixth round four years ago. In that span, he’s only caught 10 passes for 144 yards in 40 total games. With numbers like those, many are wondering how he’s stuck around so long in Los Angeles. Thomas contributes on special teams as a gunner and on returns in some cases. He’s played 536 special teams snaps in four years, which is nearly double the 238 offensive snaps in the same span. The Rams kept him...

Rams 7-round mock draft: Pre-combine offensive line makeover

The NFL combine gets underway next week in Indianapolis, which will give scouts, personnel evaluators and coaches another piece of data when it comes to building their draft boards. Prospects will rise and fall as a result of their work and weigh-ins at the combine, whether it’s fair or not. The Rams will have a smaller contingent of coaches at the combine this year with their new coordinators staying back in L.A., as well as Sean McVay spending just one night in Indianapolis. But before...

Rams RBs coach Thomas Brown recalls playing Sean McVay in high school - RamsWire

After Thomas Brown was hired to be the Los Angeles Rams’ running backs coach, Sean McVay noted that he’s been on his radar for quite a while. He was in consideration for the job when McVay joined the Rams in 2017, but the Rams opted to keep Skip Peete at his current post.

McVay’s connection to Brown doesn’t just go back three years,...

Darius Slay is on the trade block, but there's no way the Rams should bite

Imagine a secondary that features Jalen Ramsey, John Johnson, Taylor Rapp and Darius Slay. It’d be hard to find a defensive backfield with more talent than that one, which would make the Rams one of the toughest teams to throw the ball against. Now imagine what the Rams’ salary cap situation would look like, should Slay be acquired in a trade for the Detroit Lions. For a roster that’s already the most top-heavy in the NFL, adding another star like Slay is fun to dream about, but it’s...

Rams 2020 free agency preview: Marqui Christian should be re-signed

Marqui Christian was waived by the Arizona Cardinals as a rookie in 2016 before taking a single snap with the team. It was a somewhat surprising decision considering Christian was drafted in the fifth round, and the brief time it took for him to be scooped up by the Rams says a lot about how Los Angeles viewed him four years ago. Christian has seen his role grow each year with the Rams, going from special teamer in 2016 to playing 34% of the defensive snaps in each of the last two seasons....

He was in consideration for the job when McVay joined the Rams in 2017, but the Rams opted to keep Skip Peete at his current post. McVay’s connection to Brown doesn’t just go back three years, though. The two first crossed paths about 15 years ago when they were in high school and played against each other on the football field. McVay went to...

Ex-Rams bust Greg Robinson arrested with 157 pounds of marijuana in car

Former St. Louis Rams left tackle Greg Robinson was arrested Wednesday after authorities busted him with approximately 157 pounds of marijuana in his car in El Paso, Texas. Robinson was placed in a West Texas jail and held without bond. He’s being charged with conspiracy to possess marijuana with intent to distribute. If convicted, Robinson could face up to 20 years in federal prison. Former NFL wide receiver Quan Bray, who Robinson played with at Auburn, was also in the vehicle and was...

PFF predicts landing spots, contract values for Littleton and Whitworth

The Los Angeles Rams will need to be selective with their choices in free agency this year, having limited cap space with which to work. They have important free agents of their own with Andrew Whitworth, Cory Littleton, Dante Fowler Jr. and Michael Brockers all hitting the market. The Rams would love to keep all four, but that’s not exactly possible. So, they’ll have to decide who’s most important to re-sign, and who can be replaced with a cheaper player to help balance the salary...

Rams promote Sophie Luoto to director of football operations

The Los Angeles Rams are promoting Sophie Luoto to the role of director of football operations, as first reported by Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports. Luoto takes over for Bruce Warwick, who left to join Florida State’s staff after 10 years with the team. She was previously the manager of football operations in L.A. and has been with the Rams for four years. The promotion makes her one of the highest-ranking female executives in the NFL. According to ESPN, Luoto, 31, will be in charge of...
