Reinventing the wheel, er, NFL Championship roster

The LA Rams know all about the concept of valuation and masterfully assembled their roster throughout the 2021 NFL Season with one eye on increasing the value of their team all season long. The Rams traded for New England Patriots RB Sony Michel in late August 2021.
