This offseason, 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 8th about your Los Angeles Rams:
Predicting Every NFL Team’s 2018 Season Record
With just about three months left until the Rams kick off the 2018 regular season, take a look at the club’s predicted record — as projected by Sports Illustrated’s Jonathan Jones.
Check out photos from Day 10 of the Los Angeles Rams OTA.
The rich got richer this offseason, and the Rams look to be completely unfair. Ndamukong Suh is now on a defensive line beside Aaron Donald. Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib are in the same secondary. Brandin Cooks adds speed to the offense. The Rams are building a monster, and their youthful wild-card exit last year will only fuel this 2018 campaign.
Pivotal game: Week 15 vs. Philadelphia
No game on paper is as exciting as this one. It’s the site of where Carson Wentz tore his knee and Nick Foles was reborn. Both squads have their third-year quarterback with a team of veterans around them acquired through various trades and deft free agency moves. The NFC title game could be in Philly or L.A. based on the outcome of this game.
NFL's 10 Most Talented Teams
As we continue to count down the days until the 2018 regular season, the NFL.com’s Gil Brandt is taking a look around the league and breaking down the 10 most talented teams overall. And while talent is not necessarily a guarantee of success at the league level, it is fun to watch and analyze throughout the offseason.
The Rams find themselves at No. 3 on the list heading into the summer break. Here’s what Brandt had to say about the club:
“The Rams simply made one great move after another this offseason. New additions Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib
are excellent cornerbacks, while new receiver Brandin Cooks will further stretch opposing defenses. Free-agent signee Ndamukong Suh is a great player who will team with Aaron Donald up front to make life miserable for offenses across the NFL. Jared Goff and Todd Gurley headline a Rams roster that was already one of the best in the NFL in 2017 -- adding Peters, Talib, Cooks and Suh should only make this squad better. And here's an interesting wrinkle to the Rams' moves: Unlike traditional free-agent signings, they won't count against Los Angeles when compensatory picks are awarded for the 2019 NFL Draft, meaning the team was able to bring in big-time offseason help while preserving its chance to be handed some extra choices next year. (Suh's signing doesn't count against the Rams because his previous team, the Dolphins, released him.)”
