Posted Feb 14, 2018

All the latest headlines surrounding the Los Angeles Rams for Wednesday, February 14th.


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 Wednesday, Feb. 14th about your Los Angeles Rams:

Joyner Named Top-Graded Free Agent Safety

Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner had a breakout season in 2017. In his first year playing as a full-time safety, Joyner recorded 60 tackles, seven pass breakups, and a team-leading three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown).

Joyner was ranked as Pro Football Focus’ No. 3 safety this season and was named the top-graded free agent safety of the year — receiving a 90.3 overall grade. The Florida State product is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year in mid-March.

Unrestricted free agents can negotiate exclusively with the Rams until the new league year begins, but if they remain unsigned by that point, they will be free to sign with any team they choose.

Ben Agajanian, One-time L.A. Ram Who Changed Placekicking, Dies at 98

“Ben Agajanian was the first kicker to insist that the football laces be turned outward. He also developed the “Agajanian 2-step,” the ritual of soccer-style kickers to take three steps backward and two to the side when lining up for a kick.”

At 98, Agajanian had been the oldest living member of the Los Angeles Rams. He died of natural causes on Feb. 8 in Cathedral City. The placekicker played 13 seasons for 10 franchises.
