Rams good enough where Antonio Brown doesn’t even need to be considered
By Dan Parzych
Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams clearly don’t need Antonio Brown when looking at their current set of wide receivers.
When looking at the current situation at wide receiver for the Los Angeles Rams, the good news for the defending NFC champions is the temptation to bring on Antonio Brown will never be there since it would only ruin the current chemistry on offense.
After leading the league with 15 touchdown catches during the 2018 season, it was easy to understand why teams like the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots were previously interested in giving Brown a shot.
But after seeing all of the drama that has emerged over the last few weeks, it’s easy to understand why both the Raiders and Patriots decided it would be best to move on from Brown, because the talent simply didn’t outweigh the rest of the drama.
Of course, now that Brown has officially been released from the Patriots as of Friday, one of the biggest debates heading into the weekend will be whether Brown is worth another chance from some team in need of help at receiver.
Luckily for the Rams, any potential talk surrounding Brown can be thrown out the window right away, and Sean McVay couldn’t have made that clearer on Friday.
During the offseason, Los Angeles earned the nickname of the “four-headed monster” at wide receiver consisting of Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, and Josh Reynolds.
Even if Reynolds doesn’t see as much action as his teammates since McVay tends to roll more with a three-receiver set, what the Rams currently have in place at wideout almost seems too goo to be true at times, and there’s no temptation to even try messing with it.
Since McVay came on board in 2017, the Rams head coach has done a phenomenal job promoting the “we not me” approach to make sure his players always put the team first, and not focus so much on individual accomplishment.
Clearly, Brown is far from this kind of mindset when looking at all of the drama that has been taking place since the end of last season, and while there was never really any speculation that Los Angeles was in the mix, it’s still great to hear McVay remind everyone just to be safe.
