LA Rams Roster: SB dominoes have now fallen into place
By Bret Stuter
Summing it all up? The LA Rams negotiated lucrative contracts with three stars who meant the difference between winning Super Bowl LVI and perhaps not even making the NFL Playoffs. In the process, the Rams freed up over $13 million in salary cap funds.
That allowed the team to (re-)sign four veterans to the roster, all of whom are slated to start or be significant contributors to the team this year. That is not only re-signing two key contributors but signing two premium NFL veteran free agents, both of whom were highly sought by teams in the off-season.
The best of it all? The LA Rams have emerged with enough financial resources to have one more key free-agent signing a distinct possibility. Who could that be? Well, we’ll let you fill in the blanks for this article.
Just one month ago, the LA Rams appeared to be stuck in the mud, spinning their tires and going nowhere. Now? The LA Rams are on track one more. All of the Super Bowl dominoes still under the LA Rams’ control have fallen into place. Is everything perfectly aligned? Hardly. But the 2021 version of the LA Rams was never close to perfectly aligned. Vital roster moves through the course of the 2021 season were precipitated by injuries, and the Rams’ front office simply acted to patch up the roster as well as possible.
The Rams have cleared the in-basket for now. The front office can breathe a sigh of relief, they’ve done their part. Now? It’s up to the coaches, and the players.
