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 22nd about your Los Angeles Rams:
Le'Veon Bell, Todd Gurley Lead NFL's Top Running Backs for 2018
In the spirit of the NFL's "Top 100 Players of 2018" that has been airing every Monday for the past couple of weeks, the writers at NFL.com have been breaking down various positions and player groupings to deliver rankings of their own.
This week, Maurice Jones-Drew is dealing out his own list to rank the league's top-10 running backs. Rams running back Todd Gurley came in at No. 2.
"Gurley is an explosive dual-threat back for the Rams and showcased his true ability in 2017. The reigning Offensive Player of the Year finished second in the league with 1,305 yards rushing and posted a league-best 2,093 scrimmage yards (accounting for 35 percent of team's offensive output). He became only the third player in NFL history to tally 2,000 scrimmage yards, 10 rushing TDs and six TD catches in a season (joining Marshall Faulk and O.J. Simpson). He certainly has a case to be No. 1 on this list."
The Los Angeles Rams teamed up with 24 Hour Fitness to host a 'Sideline Challenge' for individuals to test their agility and skills with multiple fitness stations and NFL Combine drills.
Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters: How a Pair of Risk-Taking Corners Could Give the Rams the Edge

On Tuesday, Benoit broke down the rise of two of the league's brightest young coaches — Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan — who are set to face off against each other twice a year for many seasons to come.
And keeping with the Rams, he later detailed the club's newest additions to the secondary in cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters. Check out a preview to his latest article below and be sure to check out the full piece by clicking here.
"The Rams went ultra-aggressive in the offseason, no more so than at cornerback, where they brought in wily veteran Aqib Talib and electric but volatile young star Marcus Peters. The team that scored the most points in the NFL last year will look to shut things down on the other side of the ball."
