The LA Rams made it a point to part ways with featured running back Todd Gurley in 2020, to the point of taking a significant salary-cap hit to do so. Now he is an unclaimed free agent veteran. Are you curious to see where he lands this season? Or even if he does?

I mean, doncha wanna learn what the free-agent market is for a 27-year old running back with creaky knees? I do. Or if you see life through rose-colored glasses, what’s the free-agent market for a three-time Pro Bowl veteran running back with a serious nose for the end zone?

What’s it gonna be, pardner?

Well, the number one factoid du jour: Over the last four seasons, Gurley has scored 51 rushing touchdowns. That’s gotta count for something. Production, that is. Points on the scoreboard. Yes, please.

He could play a solid role in short-yardage situations and in the red zone. He is an ideal situational goal-line back. Every team needs at least one of those in its offensive quiver.

He could field the role of the red-zone specialist that comes into the game whenever the football gets near the end zone. Some team out there is going to take a flyer on that curriculum vitae and scoop him up, possibly even before training camps begin.
