2. Bring C.J. Anderson back
Towards the end of the regular season in 2018, C.J. Anderson was signed by the Rams for insurance purposes to Gurley to allow the Pro Bowl running back to rest the final two games, even if it was a risky move with a first-round bye on the line.

As fans know, this was the best decision Los Angeles ever could have made after Anderson shined in those final two games by rushing for 299 yards with two touchdowns to put himself in great position to earn a new deal in 2019, whether it’s with the Rams or a different team.
Even in the playoffs, Anderson stepped up in a way to make the argument that without his presence, Los Angeles never would have been playing in the Super Bowl before falling to the New England Patriots.
Rightfully so, Rams fans just assumed the team would figure out a way to make sure Anderson returned for the 2019 season to provide a dynamic duo with Gurley, but also the money factor will come into play.
One tough result for Los Angeles from Anderson’s productive campaign this past season is how much his value has gone up since they won’t be able to get him at a cheaper price. But if Brown ends up with the Lions, maybe the Rams would feel a little extra motivated to convince Anderson to return at the right price.
