Good news travels fast

Rookie wide receiver Easop Winston Jr. and his family seemed thrilled with the idea of playing for the  Rams.

And why not? The LA Rams passing game reputation is stellar in the NFL. The Rams have a need for at least one new receiver after trading away WR Brandin Cooks, and the special teams need a return specialist.

Return to …end zone?

While the Rams may settle for one player for kick returns, they will likely go with two players for punt returns.  And that is where Winston could stick with the roster.  While he’s had a limited number of punt returns in college, he averaged 37 yards per return.

He is very talented, and despite falling out of the draft, is an NFL ready receiver. Not only that, but he is also a force to be reckoned with whenever the football is in his hands.  Will he have enough time and opportunity to prove his worthiness for a Rams roster spot?  Fans should certainly hope so.
