POSITION TO WATCH AT COMBINE

The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine kicks off on Tuesday in Indianapolis and ESPN's NFL Nation reporters have picked a position to watch for their respective team.

For the Rams, Lindsey Thiry says to keep an eye on edge rushers at the combine, especially considering what the Los Angeles defense could lose in free agency.

Edge rusher - "Though the pass rush was dynamic at times, the Rams were unable to create consistent pressure from the edge last season despite acquiring outside linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. at the trade deadline. Fowler is now a pending unrestricted free agent, as is Matt Longacre, whom Fowler replaced. Opposite of Fowler was Samson Ebukam, a second-year pro and first-year starter, and after he produced three sacks in 18 starts, including the playoffs, it's uncertain whether he is a long-term solution."

GOFF REACTS TO WHIT'S RETURN

A few days after the Rams' 13-3 loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, quarterback Jared Goff was candid when asked about the possible retirement of his veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworth.

"Yeah, I would love to have them both back," Goff said of Whitworth and pending free agent left guard Rodger Saffold. "They're both tremendous players. Guys that have been huge for us up front, leadership every day in meetings, everything, they've been so big for us."

On Tuesday morning Whitworth tweeted that he'd be returning for the 2019 season, and his signal caller was pleased.
