2. Chance to work with McVay
One of the main reasons why the Rams were beyond excited over the hiring of McVay last offseason was due to the success he previously had with helping run the offense of the Washington Redskins. Offensive mastermind sounds like the perfect term to describe McVay’s ways when looking at the impact he was able to make right from the start in Los Angeles, and thanks to this amazing hire, the offense seems like it’s going to be in great shape for years to come, especially with Jared Goff and Todd Gurley just scratching the surface of their potential.
Before Watkins made the decision to leave in free agency for the Chiefs, McVay didn’t hold back his thoughts about how he would take responsibility to design better plays for the speedy wideout if he were to return to the Rams. Luckily, McVay is one of those head coaches who seems to bring the best out of his players, and if Hurns were looking for someone to help get his career back on track, this may seem like a perfect fit.
If year one is any indication of what to expect in 2018 under McVay, Los Angeles has every reason in the world to be excited about this team’s chances to be a serious Super Bowl contender in the NFC. And if Hurns were to end up being part of the picture, it could help those chances become more likely to happen.
