The Los Angeles Rams could see a new face in the NFC West with the Seattle Seahawks being the current favorites to land Ziggy Ansah.
As the Los Angeles Rams continue to count the days down until the start of training camp, the NFC champions should be keeping an eye on one of their biggest rivals within the division in the Seattle Seahawks.
Like every other team across the NFL, the Seahawks have been busy this offseason making all sorts of moves to put the team in better position to compete in the NFC during the 2019 season after earning one of the Wild Card spots last year.
With all due respect to the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers, if there’s one team that is going to give Los Angeles the most trouble in the NFC West, it’s going to be Seattle.
While the Rams rightfully deserve to be the favorites to finish on top of the division for a third year in a row, keep in mind the Seahawks have only missed out on the playoffs once during the Russell Wilson era, which came during the 2017 season.
Plus, if Seattle ends up landing one of the top free agents still available in Ziggy Ansah, it’s only going to put the Seahawks in better position to give the Rams a run for their money in the division.
Football fans can say whatever they want about the concerns surrounding Ansah with his history of injuries, but if he manages to stay healthy, and the Seahawks end up signing him at a fair price, this could turn out to be a huge steal.
At this point, Seattle seems like a team willing to add any talent they believe can help compete with Los Angeles since despite the success of the Rams over the last two seasons, the Seahawks have still found ways to make things interesting.
Of course, it should also be noted that just because Seattle is considered the favorites to land Ansah at the moment doesn’t necessarily mean it’s guaranteed to happen, meaning all Los Angeles can do is sit back, and see how this all turns out.
No matter what, even if Ansah does end up joining the NFC West, the Rams will still be ready to handle anything the Seahawks throw in their direction since they are defending champions in the conference for a reason.
