2. Ryan Jensen
Moving on from John Sullivan this offseason was a difficult decision by the Rams after looking at how much of an impact the veteran made on the offensive line over the last two seasons, but deep down it was the right one.
Unfortunately, it was noticeable towards the end of last season how Sullivan’s production had been on the decline, and with the expectations surrounding Brian Allen being ready for a larger role during his sophomore NFL season, Los Angeles appears to be in solid shape.
However, just because the Rams feel confident in Allen being able to handle the new duties as the starter at center doesn’t necessarily guarantee it’s going to be a successful transition, which is why Ryan Jensen could make for an intriguing option.
At the time of Jensen signing with the Buccaneers in March 2018, the four-year, $42 million deal made him the highest paid center in the NFL, and if Tampa Bay wanted to save a little money moving forward, a trade would be considered a wise option.
Jensen’s hefty price is easily the one factor that could steer the interest by Los Angeles away since they would need to make a few changes salary wise in order to bring him on board, but also with the protection he would bring to the offensive line, it would seem worth the move.
