3. Rams expected to focus on linebacker in offseason
As great as the defense of the Rams looked on paper, linebacker was one of the biggest questions for the team last year, but the good news is they did end up seeing a few good surprises.

Not only did Los Angeles acquire Dante Fowler Jr. before the deadline to help provide a boost to the position during the final months, but Cory Littleton turned out to have quite the effective third NFL season to possibly set himself up for a hefty pay raise down the road.
While Littleton’s current contract situation is going to be a steal for Los Angeles in 2019, there’s no guarantee that Fowler will be back in the picture, as he happens to be one of a few players the Rams need to decide on.
Even if Fowler were to return, Los Angeles was still expected to consider adding depth at the linebacker position, and a dominant player like Houston would help them fill a need in almost the best way possible.
Whether the Rams could afford Houston, well that would make for an interesting discussion since he certainly wouldn’t come cheap, although could be worth it based off his impact alone on the defensive side of the football.
