Free Agency Debrief: Four Reshaped Teams I Can't Wait to See
The first week of the 2018 NFL season is coming to a close. And after a wild start to the free agency period, NFL.com writer Gregg Rosenthal is taking a look at the four teams he is most excited to see back on field in their new form. Included in this year's list are the Browns, Bears, Titans, and Rams.
Check out some of what Rosenthal had to say about Los Angeles and check out the full article by clicking here:
"Snead found a way to improve the No. 1 corner spot, going from Johnson to former Chief Marcus Peters, while saving a lot of money in the process. Trading for Aqib Talib, who played his best career ball under Phillips in Denver, shored up the other starting spot, while Snead was able to retain Joyner with the franchise tag and keep Robey-Coleman on a bargain contract.
All three Rams cornerbacks ranked in the top 25 of Pro Football Focus' grades in 2017. Both safeties, including 2017 rookie John Johnson, ranked in the top 10 at their position. Talib and Peters bring personality and competitiveness to a defense built for thievery. A catchy nickname is the only remaining piece to the puzzle for what should be the best secondary in football."
Stat of the Day: Passing Yards Using Play Action in 2017
In 2017, the Rams put together one of the best play action schemes in the NFL. And head coach Sean McVay's focus on play action calls paid off in dividends for the club last season. According to Pro Football Focus the Rams recorded the most passing yards using play action of the year.
Quarterback Jared Goff threw for 1,446 yards using play action — almost 200 yards more than Tom Brady and the Patriots, who ranked No. 2 in the league.
