What does the future look like for Cooper Kupp and Aaron Donald?

Perhaps no two players have been more associated with the McVay era in Los Angeles than Kupp and Donald. Both played huge roles in their Super Bowl runs, and are probably (in Donald's case, definitely) future Hall of Famers.

With that being said, Father Time is undefeated, and both will enter 2024 on the "wrong" side of 30.

Donald's hinted at retirement more than once in the past few years, and Kupp's injuries are starting to catch up to him. Donald's showing few signs of slowing down, but it's unrealistic to expect the Rams to rely on either of them for another half decade or so. Do the Rams restructure some contracts? Start listening to trade talks? How LA wants to handle the twilight of both careers will be a fascinating follow.

Will the Rams spend big on a pass-rusher?

The Rams' pass-rush was one of the worst in football last year.

The good news for them is that there are some guys out there that would change that overnight, and LA's always an easy free agent sell. Whether it's Jacksonville's Josh Allen, Carolina's Brian Burns, or Minnesota's Danielle Hunter, signing anyone from the top of the free agent pass-rushing class would be a huge get for the Rams. If they wanted to try and find some production for a "cheaper" price tag, guys like Bryce Huff, Jadeveon Clowney, or even Chase Young could be in play.

Reuniting with Leonard Floyd wouldn't even be the worst idea. Regardless of the direction they take, it's probably safe to expect they'll be active there this March and April.
