6 LA Rams players who could be playing their last season in horns
While I have been cheering for backup offensive lineman Bobby Evans over the past several years, I cannot ignore the fact that it’s now or never for his opportunities to remain with the LA Rams. While he has been relegated to a backup role, he has not shown enough solid play to warrant a return to a starting role.
The LA Rams offensive line is in a bit of transition right now. Former starters turned backups, Joseph Noteboom and Brian Allen, have returned to starting roles due to grit and determination. Unfortunately, Evans has not had the wherewithal to take advantage of opportunities that have presented themselves since he started seven games in 2019.
Evans has been given his chances. The Rams even projected Evans to start at right guard in 2021 and Austin Corbett to move from right guard to the offensive center. But after the pads went on, the Rams scrambled to restore Corbett to his guard position, and the team promoted Brian Allen to the center position. The odd man out? Bobby Evans.
Evans is 6-foot-4 and 312 pounds. He’s played virtually all offensive line positions for the Rams but has primarily played on the right side of the offensive line at both right guard and right tackle. While he is a very likable player and plays his heart out, he has yet to showcase that he can handle the intensity of NFL play on a weekly basis.
