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, May 31 about your Los Angeles Rams.
RAMS CAN DETHRONE PATS
NFL.com’s Adam Schein picked nine NFL teams who could “dethrone” the Patriots in 2019. The Patriots have been to four out of the past five Super Bowls, and won three Lombardis in that span. But Shein has a shortlist of teams that could break the trend and says the Rams’ deep roster and 33-year-old head coach could be the difference maker.
“The good news is, the Rams say they're pleased with Gurley's progress, and there's no denying the they still ooze amazing talent across the board, led by reigning Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald. Sean McVay is a fabulous coach with a great staff, and I'm not expecting the infamous "Super Bowl hangover" to keep this club from being right back in the thick of the NFC race.”

L.A.’s OTAs STAR
Rising third-year tight end Gerald Everett caught 33 passes for 320 yards and three touchdowns as a contributor in the Los Angeles Rams offense in 2018. On Friday, Bleacher Report’s Maurice Moton called Everett the Rams’ breakout star from OTAs so far.
Team insider Myles Simmons caught a flash of what the young tight end has added to his game as a pass catcher earlier this week.
"…tight end Gerald Everett displayed his considerable receiving skills by elevating in the back of the end zone to catch a Goff pass over a pair of defenders. The coverage from the first-team secondary was tight at the beginning of the play, so the signal-caller had to roll to his right to create something off-schedule."
