If Kenny Stills fails to reach a deal with the Miami Dolphins, would the wide receiver consider joining the Los Angeles Rams?
Once 2017 NFL free agency officially gets underway in a few weeks, all eyes will be on which wide receivers could end up joining the Los Angeles Rams for the 2017 season. This year’s free agency class has plenty of talented receivers the Rams would love to have such as Pierre Garcon or Alshon Jeffery, but one player that could be on the team’s radar is Kenny Stills of the Miami Dolphins.
Depending on whether the Dolphins can reach an agreement with their wideout, Stills could easily become one of the most sought after players in free agency when looking at all of the teams in desperate need of help in their passing game, including Los Angeles. Not only is he coming off an impressive 2016 campaign in which he caught 42 passes for 726 yards and nine touchdowns, but Stills will be turning 25 at the end of April.
In other words, Stills seems to still have his best years ahead of him, and when looking at the situation of the Rams, there’s no question he would make a great addition to help take some of the pressure off Jared Goff in the passing game. Between Tavon Austin struggling to handle the responsibilities of a No. 1 wideout to Kenny Britt most likely joining another team in free agency, Goff is going to need all of the help he can get if Los Angeles is going to have any shot at improving an offense that only averaged 14 points per game in 2016.

A team like the Rams may not seem like the most attractive offer for a free agent wide receiver since they only won four games last year, but keep in mind this would provide Stills with an opportunity to return to California, where he went to high school. Not to mention there’s a good chance Los Angeles wouldn’t be shy about offering a hefty contract since the last thing the last thing they want to do is stall the development of Goff by failing to provide him with the necessary weapons.
