  Rams | Kenny Britt set to be UFA    Sat Jan 14, 04:38 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Kenny Britt will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Britt had some chemistry with QB Jared Goff, so the Rams might want to bring the veteran back. Of course, there's been suggestions that "Jeff Fisher guys" like Britt could be let go. Britt is coming off the first 1,000-yard season of his career and should get a healthy amount of interest on the open market.

  Rams | LAR not permitted to interview Chris Foerster    Sat Jan 14, 09:39 AM

The Los Angeles Rams were blocked from interviewing Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster for their vacant offensive coordinator position, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's a bit of a surprise as most teams will let a coach interview for what would be a promotion.

  Rams | Sean McVay to call plays    Sat Jan 14, 09:35 AM

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay will call his own offensive plays during the 2017 season.

Footballguys view: McVay is known as an aggressive coach who wants to attack with his offense. Getting the most out of no.1 pick QB Jared Goff should be the top priority for the young head coach.

  Rams | Wade Phillips joining Los Angeles    Thu Jan 12, 09:55 PM

Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has agreed to terms to become the defensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: Phillips is done in Denver, and now the Rams get an even more swarming defense. He helped make the Broncos into Super Bowl champions last year, and Phillips should be able to make the Rams a ferocious unit in 2017. The Rams now have an aggressive young head coach in Sean McVay, and an aggressive veteran coach on defense who has been around football his entire life. That's a nice mix.

  Rams | Les Snead staying with Rams    Thu Jan 12, 05:12 PM

General manager Les Snead will retain his position heading into 2017.

Footballguys view: Snead had to work with Jeff Fisher....that alone makes him a saint. Well, maybe not saintly but he certainly had his challenges working with the veteran coach. Now, Snead will be working with 30-year old coach Sean McVay. Snead has picked some good players for the Rams, and we'll see how he works with McVay to get the most out of that talent.

  Rams | Sean McVay eyeing Wade Phillips     Thu Jan 12, 04:35 PM

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay is targeting Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips to be the Rams' new defensive coordinator.

Footballguys view: Phillips seems to have worn out his welcome with the Broncos. He wants to be compensated like a top defensive coordinator -- and he should be after crafting a Super Bowl winning defense last year. Phillips could also be a consideration for Washington.

  Rams | Sean McVay hired by Rams    Thu Jan 12, 04:30 PM

Former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay has been hired as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Rams, according to a source. McVay is now the youngest head coach in NFL history. He turns 31 on Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: McVay was certainly a fast riser through the coaching ranks. He was an assistant tight ends coach with Washington back in 2010, and McVay worked his way up to offensive coordinator. This is certainly a high-risk/high-reward hiring by the Rams, and we'll see how McVay works with 2016 first-round pick QB Jared Goff.

  Rams | Anthony Lynn to meet with Rams again    Thu Jan 12, 09:37 AM

Buffalo Bills interim head coach Anthony Lynn is scheduled for a second interview with the Los Angeles Rams about their head coaching vacancy, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Rams need some offensive help and while Lynn didn't get the job he wanted in Buffalo, he could be a solid fit for Jared Goff and Los Angeles. We know Lynn can design a scheme to lean on a great running back like Todd Gurley, and that's a good basis to start from for the Rams.

  Rams | Harold Goodwin meeting with Rams    Wed Jan 4, 08:23 AM

Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin will interview with the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Jan. 5, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Goodwin is getting some attention as a head coaching candidate again this offseason. He's been the OC for the Cardinals since 2013, but doesn't handle the play-calling duties. The Cardinals use head coach Bruce Arians for that, but in the preseason Goodwin did get three games to call the plays. Goodwin got interest last year from the Bucs before they hired Dirk Koetter.

  Rams | Steve Wilks interviewing Monday    Tue Jan 3, 04:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers assistant coach Steve Wilks is interviewing for the Los Angeles Rams' vacant head coaching position Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: Wilks is not the only Panthers assistant getting interest as a potential head coach as Sean McDermott is getting interviews too. He has the title of assistant coach and defensive backs coach for the Panthers.

  Rams | John Fassel interviews for permanent job    Tue Jan 3, 03:53 PM

Los Angeles Rams interim head coach John Fassel interviewed for the permanent head coaching job Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: After Jeff Fisher was fired, the Rams turned to Fassel as their interim head coach. The Rams did not look inspired with Fassel at the helm and continued to flounder after the switch, only scoring more than 7 points in one of the three games he coached. They went 0-3 with Fassel as interim head coach, and we don't think he's a serious contender for the permanent job.

  Rams | LA seeks to interview Doug Marrone    Mon Jan 2, 08:29 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars interim coach Doug Marrone is being sought for an interview by the Los Angeles Rams about their head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: Marrone may not be quite as 'Hollywood' as the Rams want, but they are doing their due diligence here. We feel the Rams will make one of the more 'splashy' moves of the several teams in need of a new head coach.

  Rams | Sean Payton interested in LA?     Sun Dec 25, 01:07 PM

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton reportedly has some interest in the open Los Angeles Rams position. Payton's daughter lives on the West Coast.

Footballguys view: This could only improve Todd Gurley's prospects, and Payton would know what to do with Tavon Austin. The quarterback could be a limiting issue, but owners of any Rams players in dynasty leagues should be rooting for this, while it's a development that could hurt the Saints passing juggernaut.
