Cory Littleton has officially signed his tender with the Los Angeles Rams for the 2019 season.
When looking at all of the uncertainty surrounding the linebacker position heading into last season, Cory Littleton took full advantage of the situation by emerging as one of the top performers for the Los Angeles Rams on defense.
Despite appearing in every game during his first two NFL season after signing with the Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2016, Littleton took things to a whole new level in 2018 by starting every game for Los Angeles, and even earned a trip to the Pro Bowl.
All of a sudden, that decision to bring Littleton on board three years ago looks like an absolute steal, and after putting together his best season in 2018, one can only imagine what this upcoming season will have in store for the linebacker.
Of course, before that could happen, Los Angeles knew they had to take care of business in regards to Littleton since they were still waiting for him to sign the second-round tender placed on him back in March.
Finally on Monday, Littleton officially signed his tender that will pay him $3.095 million during the 2019 season, showing just how much of a steal the Rams are getting to help keep their defense in tip-top shape.
Steal doesn’t even begin to describe what kind of deal this is for Los Angeles when compared to Littleton’s production from last season, and while the Rams know they may have to open up their checkbook at some point down the road, at least they have time.
Until then, Los Angeles will continue to enjoy having Littleton present on the defensive side of the football, as this team can use all of the extra help they can get in order to earn another trip to the Super Bowl.
Losing to the New England Patriots the way they did by failing to record a single touchdown was completely embarrassing for a team like the Rams, but at least Littleton and the defense looked good in the contest.
Plenty can happen over the next couple of months since Los Angeles will be playing with targets on their backs once again as a top contender in the NFC, but at least with the Littleton situation finally taken care of, the Rams have one less thing to worry about.
