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 Friday, June 14 about your Los Angeles Rams.
GOFF’s SUPPORTING CAST
Quarterback Jared Goff and the Rams took the No. 3 spot in Brad Gagnon of the Bleacher Report’s recent list of the NFL’s top quarterback supporting casts. Goff’s group trails only QB Baker Mayfield and the Browns and QB Drew Brees and the Saints, and Gagnon points to injury concerns in L.A.
No. 3 QB Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams - “We got evidence late last year that the Rams running game can still be effective without riding Gurley to a point of exhaustion, and it's possible he'll still flourish in a less intense role. If that happens, Kupp returns and either tight end can rise up, this might be the best supporting cast in the NFL. But it's unlikely all of that happens, so for now they're the second runner-up.”

ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry called rising third-year tight end Gerald Everett the Rams’ surprising offseason standout performer on Friday.
“A second-round pick in 2017, Everett has had a few standout moments in his young career, including a 39-yard catch in the NFC Championship Game, but he has not been consistently called upon in coach Sean McVay's offense. Through the offseason program, Everett was a clear standout as a target for quarterback Jared Goff. "The game is slowing down for him," McVay said. "He's just continuing to progress and take steps." Everett will compete in a group that also includes fourth-year tight end Tyler Higbee.”
Everrett caught 33 passes for 320 yards receiving and three touchdowns as a member of head coach Sean McVay’s offense a season ago.
