Posted Mar 19, 2018

All the latest headlines surrounding the Los Angeles Rams for Monday, March 19.

This offseason, theRams.com will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here’s a look at what’s out there for Monday, March 19th about your Los Angeles Rams:

Biggest Remaining Need for all 32 NFL Teams

After the first wild week of free agency, ESPN’s NFL Nation reporters asses the biggest remaining need for all 32 teams in the league. According to the group, the Rams biggest hole this offseason is at linebacker.

“Gaping holes remain at linebacker after the Robert Quinn and Alec Ogletree trades that freed some salary-cap space. The only returning starter among four linebackers is Mark Barron. The Rams have confidence in backups Matt Longacre, Samson Ebukam and Cory Littleton, and they could find some additional depth with the No. 23 pick in the draft. But the Rams would like to add some accomplished veterans at these positions as well. One option could be Connor Barwin, whom they would like to bring back.”

Unpopular Opinions: Rams NFC's Best Team

In the NFL.com’s weekly series, “Unpopular Opinions,” writer Adam Rank will be articulating a handful of positions that are the opposite of what most people think and explaining why these opinions are right.

This week, Rank weighed in on the beginnings of the NFL offseason and free agency period. In particular he talks about one team’s recent acquisitions that he believes have stood out above the rest.

UNPOPULAR OPINION: With two brilliant trades, the Rams are now the NFC's best team:

“Yes, the Rams just passed the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles. And they didn't do it in free agency -- they did it through a few trades.

Sure, L.A. just lost Watkins. But the additions of Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib are going to push the Rams over the top. Best moves they've made since they jettisoned Jeff Fisher. And then hired Sean McVay. And then hired Wade Phillips. ... Fine, these are the best moves they've made this year.

With McVay's potent offense, Phillips' upgraded defense and the team's uptick in It Factor, the Rams are the top team in the NFC right now…”
