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, May 15 about your Los Angeles Rams.
QB COMMITMENT RANKING
The Rams announced plans this offseason to exercise the fifth-year option of quarterback Jared Goff’s contract, but that option could be replaced by a long term extension sooner than later according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano. In his recent quarterback commitment rankings, Graziano said the Rams fall under the ‘on the verge of commitment’ category with Goff.
No. 22 Los Angeles Rams | Jared Goff “Realistically, Goff is in line for a multiyear extension that would supplant the 2020 option year and keep him in Los Angeles for the long term. And the Rams have a little bit of history of doing those extensions early, as they did with former first-round picks such as Todd Gurley II and Robert Quinn, each of whom got extended in the summer before his fourth season. So watch out for a possible Goff deal this offseason that would move him into a different tier.”

SACK RECORD COULD FALL
Bleacher Report’s Gary Davenport made a list of NFL records that could be broken in the upcoming season and former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan’s 22.5 single-season sack mark is among them.
Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald flirted with the record in 2018 — notching an NFL-best 20.5 sacks — and Davenport says No. 99 could make another run at the record in 2019.
“Whether it's Donald, Watt, Von Miller of the Denver Broncos or Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns, we're in something of a golden age for pass-rushers. You can't count all the players with 15-plus-sack upside without removing your shoes.”
