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 Wednesday July 25th about your Los Angeles Rams:
GURLEY GETS PAID
Running back Todd Gurley and the Rams agreed to terms on a contract extension on Tuesday, making Gurley the highest paid running back in the league in terms of guaranteed money.
The NFL joined the Todd Gurley conversation on Twitter yesterday, sharing a compilation of the two-time Pro Bowler's top plays from 2017.
Gurley's extension will make him Ram through 2023.
RAMS SETTING L.A. TREND
It's been a big couple of months for sports in Los Angeles.
The city has experienced a recent flurry of athletic talent with the additions of LeBron James to the Lakers, international soccer superstar Zlatan Iibrahimovic to the Galaxy, and most recently Manny Machado to the Dodgers. The city also welcomed the newly formed MLS club L.A. FC for its inaugural season and Lakers legend Jerry West to the front office of the Clippers in June.
Colin Cowherd said on 'The Herd' on Tuesday that the Los Angeles Rams are responsible for this influx of sports superstars in L.A. and the success that may follow.
