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 Monday, July 9th about your Los Angeles Rams:
Who is the Division's Best Newcomer?
ESPN's NFC West reporters made their picks on who will be the division's best newcomer for the 2018 season. Two reporters predicted Ndamukong Suh will make the biggest impact while another chose Marcus Peters
Brady Henderson, Seattle Seahawks reporter: Rams defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Take your pick from any of the Rams' big-ticket acquisitions. I'll go with Suh, who has five Pro Bowls and 51.5 sacks over his career.
Nick Wagoner, San Francisco 49ers reporter: Rams cornerback Marcus Peters. There was no shortage of star power added to the division this offseason, but Peters stands above the rest in terms of talent and situation.
Josh Weinfuss, Arizona Cardinals reporter: Suh. Yes, the Rams added two top-tier cornerbacks in Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, either of whom could've been chosen for this honor, but it's Suh's potential, especially paired with Aaron Donald up front, that makes him the best.
The only non-Ram to be selected was Arizona rookie quarterback Josh Rosen.
Lindsey Thiry, Los Angeles Rams reporter: Rosen's style of play is better suited for the NFL that it was at UCLA -- as long as he can get some protection. When his time comes, expect him to light it up with his natural arm talent.
Rams Enjoying Mexico City
Day 1 started off with a canal ride in Xochimilco in custom Rams-decorated boats.
The second stop of the day was to Coyoacan where the players visited Parroquia San Juan Bautista and Fuente de los Coyotes.
Hekker Releases Olly
Rams punter Johnny Hekker took advantage of his time off this past weekend by indulging in his soccer fandom at Banc of California Stadium. Playing in its inaugural MLS season, LAFC has started a tradition of having a special game presenter that releases a falcon named Olly into the air prior to its matches. And this past Saturday night before the club's tilt with Orlando City Hekker was granted the honor.
It's no coincidence LAFC went on to post a 4-1 victory.
