2- OLB Beasley
Veteran linebacker Vic Beasley is one of the most versatile free agents available. Standing 6-foot-3 and weighing 246 pounds, Beasley has played defensive end, outside linebacker, and inside linebacker. He is always capable of sacking the quarterback, which makes him one of the most intriguing players in the NFL Free Agency market today.
Beasley has been getting some interest from other NFL teams, the latest has been an invitation to try out for the Las Vegas Raiders. Earlier in the season, he was a rotational player for the Tennessee Titans. While his Tennessee experience was not spectacular, the Rams merely need a capable threat to sack the opponent’s quarterback. Beasley is more than capable of that role and should be offered the opportunity to try out.
1- OLB Suggs
Veteran Terrell Suggs is the right addition to a playoff-bound team this late in the season. A veteran of 17 NFL seasons, he’s about playoff runs now, and not as interested in training camps. He played a role in helping the Kansas City Chiefs on their playoff run as they went on to win the Super Bowl. Now, Suggs is willing to sign on for another team with a chance to repeat the Chiefs’ run in 2019.
The Rams are certainly in a good position to do so. With a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football, the NFC West title will be in the Rams’ control. Then, it’s a chance to even the score against the San Francisco 49ers as the Rams hope to improve to 7-3 and then 8-3. In the process, Suggs would be a welcome addition. Not only for what he can do on the football field but for the guidance and leadership he can afford to younger players on the roster.
