  Rams | Jared Goff's option picked up    Tue Apr 23, 03:06 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff had his fifth-year rookie option for 2020 exercised Tuesday, April 23.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Rams might be smart to extend Goff soon before salaries get even more out of hand. Perhaps he will take a team-friendly deal to create more team-building flexibility.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown praised by Todd Gurley    Sat Apr 20, 09:13 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown has 'always been reliable' when called upon, according to RB Todd Gurley. 'If I go out, he's doing the exact same thing,' Gurley said.

Footballguys view: Brown certainly has talent as a runner when healthy. Last season, Brown was banged up with a collarbone injury that landed him on Injured Reserve after 12 games. The Rams re-signed Brown to a two-year, $3.25 million contract earlier this offseason and he'll be the primary backup to Todd Gurley in 2019.

  Rams | Jared Goff not worried about contract    Sat Apr 20, 02:54 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff said he is not worried about his contract situation and believes he will receive a lucrative contract if he continues to play well. The Rams are expected to exercise the fifth-year option in Goff's contract this offseason.

Footballguys view: Goff is under the team's control through the 2020 season if/when they pick up his fifth-year option. He'll need to continue to play well if he wants that big money deal. We expect that Goff will get extended at some time but there's no real hurry to get the deal done at this time.

  Rams | Todd Gurley feeling better    Mon Apr 15, 07:20 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) said his knee is feeling better and does not expect it to be a long-term issue.

Footballguys view: Gurley's knee injury bothered him down the stretch of the 2018 season and he had to miss time, leading to C.J. Anderson emerging for the Rams before and during the postseason. Anderson is gone to the Lions and Gurley is feeling better. We know he's a stud when healthy and hopefully he gets back to his studly ways in 2019.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp expected to be ready for opener    Mon Apr 15, 04:18 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) has yet to encounter a setback in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, and head coach Sean McVay said the goal is to have Kupp ready for the season opener, according to Ryan Kartje of the Orange County Register.

Footballguys view: Kupp made it through eight games in 2018 before going down with injury. He's a key piece of the passing attack and makes for a nice addition if you play in PPR formats. The plan all along has been to have Kupp ready by the season opener.

  Rams | Todd Gurley's importance unlikely to change    Fri Apr 12, 03:49 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) will 'continue to be a central piece of our offense and I don't see that changing,' head coach Sean McVay told The Rich Eisen Show on Friday, April 12.

Footballguys view: Gurley should be the centerpiece of what the Rams do on offense. They need to run the ball effectively in order to set up the play-action passing game for Jared Goff and the rest of the offense. We'll see if Gurley can stay healthy this year and not get slowed down by a knee problem like he did at the end of the 2018 season.

  Rams | Ndamukong Suh not returning    Wed Mar 27, 03:04 PM

Free-agent DT Ndamukong Suh (Rams) is 'pretty much guaranteed' not to re-sign with the Los Angeles Rams, according to general manager Les Snead.

Footballguys view: Snead said the Rams' salary cap situation prohibits them from re-signing Suh at his cost. They signed Suh to a one-year, $14 million deal last year.

  Rams | Jared Goff extension talks on hold    Tue Mar 26, 04:06 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff's potential contract extension isn't a top priority currently, according to head coach Sean McVay. 'Whether it happens this year, next year, those are things we haven't really gotten into in depth about yet,' McVay said.

Footballguys view: With the fifth-year option, the Rams have Goff under contract through the 2020 season. They don't have a rush to get something done, although one could easily make the argument that the sooner the better (and cheaper).

Free-agent RB C.J. Anderson (Rams) said on his Twitter feed that his time with the Los Angeles Rams 'was fun' and that he enjoyed the opportunity.

Footballguys view: Malcolm Brown's return ended Anderson's short but memorable run for the Rams. We know he can still play, but his services still don't seem to be in demand.

  Rams | Samson Ebukam likely out until training camp    Fri Mar 22, 02:04 PM

Los Angeles Rams LB Samson Ebukam (knee) underwent minor knee surgery after the season, and he is expected to be held out until training camp, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Rams brought back Dante Fowler and signed Clay Matthews, so Ebukam will have a smaller role. We'll always remember what he did against the Chiefs in the game of the year, but that might be the high point of his Rams tenure.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown staying with Rams    Fri Mar 22, 09:22 AM

Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent RB Malcolm Brown's two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet by the Detroit Lions was matched by the Rams Friday, March 22. He'll receive a $100,000 signing bonus and $1 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: This was an easy call, as the two-year deal is actually cheaper on a per year basis than his restricted free agent tender. The Rams probably don't need to make another move at running back unless they are worried about Todd Gurley's knee.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp remains on track    Thu Mar 21, 09:08 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (knee) said his recovery is where it is 'supposed to be' at this point in the process.

  Rams | Blake Bortles terms    Wed Mar 20, 09:19 AM

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams QB Blake Bortles received a one-year, $1 million deal from the Rams, which will be subtracted from the $6.5 million the Jacksonville Jaguars owe him.

Footballguys view: Bortles gets a fresh start with Sean McVay and the Rams. He's the backup to Jared Goff and won't see any playing time unless Goff is injured. We'll see if Bortles can play better with a better offensive coach to learn from.

Free-agent QB Blake Bortles (Jaguars) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams Monday, March 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Rams needed a backup quarterback to Jared Goff since Sean Mannion was a free agent. This is an interesting destination for Bortles, a first-round disappointment of the Jaguars. If he can't make plays with head coach Sean McVay then he's unlikely to make plays anywhere.

Free-agent QB Blake Bortles (Jaguars) will visit the Los Angeles Rams Monday, March 18, according to a team source.

Footballguys view: The Rams are looking for backup help behind Jared Goff. Last year's top reserve, Sean Mannion, is a free agent and they only have Brandon Allen on the roster behind Goff at this time. Bortles had mostly bad times with the Jaguars but he has flashed a bit here and there. His best spot is as a backup.

Footballguys view: And the truth shall set you free! There has been a ton of mystery surrounding Gurley's knee and his usage during the Rams playoff run. Gurley is looking at stem cell procedures that could help with his knee. Expect the Rams to lighten the workload for the superstar running back so this knee doesn't continue to give him problems.

  Rams | LA Rams to keep eye on Todd Gurley's usage    Fri Mar 1, 02:00 AM

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley will likely have his workload monitored more often moving forward, according to comments made by general manager Les Snead on Thursday, Feb. 28.'I think where we have to go is to fast forward to now is with Todd, he's had a lot of carries since he's come in the league, a lot of yards, a lot of touchdowns ... things like that. Obviously, senior year, junior year, Georgia, (tore) the ACL, so over that time there's an element of wear and tear and I think we have to determine in probably two stages: are we going to give him the amount of load that he's had in the past or are we going to lessen that load to let's say keep him fresher for the season and for the seasons beyond. If you go that route, you have to have a good, let's call it Batman and Robin combination or add another superhero figure into that and figure how you're going to do it. ... It's something we want to be intentional about and proactive,' Snead said.

  Rams | New information on Todd Gurley's injury?    Wed Feb 20, 11:48 AM

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) was 'more hurt than we thought' and could have been dealing with a sprained knee as opposed to knee inflammation, as head coach Sean McVay and the team indicated during the season, according to comments made by C.J. Anderson on Fox Sports 1's 'Undisputed' on Tuesday, Feb. 19.'The injury was a little bit more than what everybody in the building thought, including himself. ... Yeah, he'd never really tell me. ... I would say sprained knee. Obviously, it's the same knee injury he's had before in his career. Obviously, I had surgery on my meniscus and once you have a knee, you always have a knee. So it aggravates and if he was getting a lot of touches earlier in the year -- obviously him being one of the best backs, that probably was the case,' Anderson said.

Footballguys view: Gurley just wasn't himself in the playoffs and certainly in the Super Bowl. We'll see him get rest this offseason with the chance to be 100 percent by the time the regular season gets here.
