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, March 15th about your Los Angeles Rams.
RAMS FA RUMORS
Bleacher Report’s Tim Daniels wrote about the Rams’ potential interest in veteran outside linebacker Clay Matthews a day into free agency.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport reported that defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is a fan of Matthews on Thursday, and Daniels agrees that adding the veteran on a short-term contract might be a nice fit.
“If the linebacker opts for a new team, Los Angeles makes a lot of sense on paper as it attempts to bolster a pass rush that finished 15th in the NFL with 41 sacks last season.
Matthews would represent an upgrade over Samson Ebukam and Trevon Young, who are penciled in as the Rams' projected starters at outside linebacker, though L.A. would be betting on a return to form for the 32-year-old.”
Matthews played his college ball at the University of Southern California.
