ILB James Laurinaitis - St. Louis Rams

Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


Laurinaitis is a team leader with Chris Long, and the signal caller and QB of the defense. Somewhat overshadowed in an NFC West bursting with great ILB/MLBs, such as Patrick Willis, Navorro Bowman, Daryl Washington and Bobby Wagner (also 2 X ex-Cardinal Karlos Dansby in 2013), he is talented in his own right, averaging over 100 solo tackles and about 2 sacks and 2 INTs in his five seasons with the Rams. With what looks like the most talented DL in the NFL in front of him, Laurinaitis could have a less obstructed opportunity to patrol the middle of the field and make more plays (in both the run and pass game), and be in line for a career season. He turns 28 in December. (May 26)
