2. Evander Hood
First off, there would obviously be some risk in the Rams signing a veteran who recently turned 32 in Evander Hood since his numbers have arguably been on the decline over the last few seasons, but the good news is the defensive tackle could benefit from a fresh start on a playoff contender.
All the way back in 2009, the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to use a first-round pick on the former Missouri star, and the decision seemed to pay off when seeing how Hood appeared in every game over the next five years.
Since then, Hood has struggled to find a consistent home when considering he’s been on four different teams dating back to 2014, with two of the latest being the Dolphins and Washington Redskins this past season.
At his age, any sort of signing involving Hood was obviously be a short-term answer since the veteran may only have a few good years left in him. But if the Rams go into win-now mode, and believe Hood could make some contributions to help make another run at the Super Bowl, why wouldn’t they consider this scenario?
Not to mention, a player like Hood could certainly benefit from playing alongside one of the game’s best in Aaron Donald.
