Footballguys view: There was some buzz a couple of weeks ago that the Rams could be shopping Cooks. In fact, the reports speculated that Cooks had been on the trade block for most of the offseason but had no takers. It looks like he's not going anywhere and will stay with the Rams to stretch the field with his incredible speed.

  Rams | Cooper Kupp very efficient near goal line    Tue Mar 24, 11:38 PM

Footballguys view: Kupp is quick on underneath routes and he knows how to find his way in tight spaces. He should continue to be a big target in the red zone this season.

Footballguys view: It's the end of an era with the Rams. He was not himself over the last year and a half or so as knee problems and ankle problems plagued his game. Gurley was due a roster bonus around $10 million on Thursday and the team couldn't trade him away. Now free to sign anywhere, Gurley should have no shortage of interest.

  Rams | Blake Bortles has options    Tue Mar 17, 02:28 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent QB Blake Bortles is weighing several options, according to a source Tuesday, March 17. One option reportedly is to return to the Rams.

Footballguys view: Bortles getting a ton of interest is a bit surprising. Maybe it's not a ton, but some teams might want him as a veteran backup behind a young starter. We think staying with the Rams might be the best thing for him. Stay tuned.

  Rams | Todd Gurley on the move soon?    Mon Mar 16, 03:50 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley's name has reportedly come up multiple times in trade talks, according to NFL Network's Michael Silver.

Footballguys view: Gurley's contract is going to give team's pause when considering him in a trade. He's got a $17.2 million cap hit in 2020 and there is still $12.6 million remaining in dead money. We'll see if somehow they can pull off this deal (if they want to). The Cardinals were able to move David Johnson's contract on Monday so there is hope if the Rams want to get rid of Gurley.

Footballguys view: The linebacker franchise tag will be north of 15 million, which sounds exorbitant for Littleton even though he has been an excellent starter. The Rams are going to have limitations on their ability to retain players after a recent spending spree.

  Rams | Michael Brockers leaving Rams?    Fri Jan 31, 02:04 PM

Los Angeles Rams DT Michael Brockers, a pending free agent, posted a video Friday, Jan. 31, on Uninterrupted's Twitter and Instagram accounts in which he reads a letter, thanking the team and fans for his eight seasons with the Rams. Brockers likely will be a salary-cap casualty and sign elsewhere, according to a team beat reporter.

Footballguys view: The Rams have a ton of money tied up in Aaron Donald's deal, so it makes sense that they wouldn't have room in the budget for Brockers. Donald will be the last one left of the Brockers-Suh-Donald defensive line that dominated in 2018.

Former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell is reportedly finalizing a deal to become the new offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Scott Turner was hired as OC with Washington and that left O'Connell considering other options. The Rams is an interesting landing spot as head coach Sean McVay had served as his own OC since he took over in 2017. O'Connell did some good work with rookie QB Dwayne Haskins and should be able to build a strong relationship with Jared Goff.
