Each weekday, 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, March 13th about your Los Angeles Rams.
BEST REMAINING MOVE
Bleacher Report’s Gary Davenport gave his two cents on the best remaining move for each NFL team as free agency opens on Wednesday.
He says the Rams should keep defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh around to help stop the run, despite general manager Les Snead saying on Tuesday that the Rams anticipate losing the five-time Pro Bowler after just one season in L.A.
“The Rams now need to do the same with Ndamukong Suh, who had 59 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 2018. Re-signing Suh will be expensive, but even after re-upping Fowler, the Rams can still afford him. It's a classic case of not fixing that which isn't broken and keeping a formidable front together.”

SUH MOVE PAID OFF
NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison rated his top 2018 free agency moves based on each player’s performance this season. Harrison perhaps furthers Davenport’s point to keep Suh around, slotting the Rams’ deal with the defensive tackle at No. 11 on his list.
Here’s why he says the move paid off:
“From Week 10 on, he tallied 35 tackles, an impressive number over seven games for a defensive tackle. Despite only recording 1.5 sacks during that stretch, Suh hit opposing quarterbacks 10 times. He performed even better in the postseason, with 10 tackles, 1.5 sacks and another five quarterback hits in three games. Suh and C.J. Anderson provided a significant late-season spark for a team that surged to its first Super Bowl in 17 years, with Suh providing some late R.O.I. for the Rams.”

FOWLER’S BEST SEASON YET
