Rams FAs who signed with new teams (6)

  • Coleman Shelton, C (Chicago Bears)- (1-year deal for $3 million) While the Rams have been quite busy in the 2024 NFL Free Agency market, Rams players have not. Curiously, Rams center Coleman Shelton was under contract with the team for 2024. But he met conditions that allowed him to void his contract, which he chose to execute. He signed for a little more to compete for a role with the Chicago Bears.
  • Jordan Fuller, S (Carolina Panthers) - (1-year, up to $5.25 million) The Carolina Panthers have never shied away from signing former Rams players. Now Jordan Fuller is the next ex-Rams player to find a home on the Panthers roster. Fuller has had his struggles staying healthy, missing 14 games in 2022. He did suit up for every game in 2023 and was productive enough to warrant returning as the starter for 2024. But, that won't happen. Fuller could be a solid value for the Panthers if the price is right. But he won't be back in the Rams secondary in 2024.
  • Tremayne Anchrum Jr., IOL (Seattle Seahawks) - (1-year, $1.155 million) The Seattle Seahawks have signed offensive guard Tremayne Anchrum Jr to a contract. The Rams were ready to move on as the team extended Kevin Dotson and then added Lions' offensive guard Jonah Jacobson. With no room on the Rams roster, Anchrum will compete for playing time on the Seahawks roster. Anchrum was more than a football player, he was a person who gave selflessly to his community. He deserves a chance to start. Unfortunately, that won't happen with the LA Rams.
  • Jonah Williams, DE (Minnesota Vikings) - (1-year deal for $1.5 million) The LA Rams appear to be moving on from one of the many players who learned under former DL Coach Eric Henderson. Not only did All-Pro DL Aaron Donald retire, but the team has now lost a young and promising defensive end Jonah Willams to the Minnesota Vikings. Much like former Rams defensive end Morgan Fox, Williams was an undrafted rookie signed after the 2020 NFL Draft. Standing 6-foot-5 and weighing 275 pounds, Williams was a powerful young man who had finally earned a starting role on the defense. He played 598 defense snaps in 2023, getting 49 tackles, four tackles for a loss, four quarterback hits, and 2.0 quarterback sacks. While he didn't show as much as a starter as hoped, he is a solid player who will only get better over time. I truly expect that he will have his best season ever on the Vikings' defense in 2024.
  • Carson Wentz, QB (Kansas City Chiefs) - (1-year deal for $3.25 million) Curiously, the Rams did not manage to bring back QB Carson Wentz, despite the urgings of fans. While no direct information is readily available, I would suspect that neither Wentz nor the Rams front office aggressively pursued an extension. The team signed Jimmy Garoppolo for more money, and Wentz was reluctant to sign with the Rams in 2023 and certainly did not seem to have many comments about wanting to return.
  • Royce Freeman, RB (Dallas Cowboys) - (1-year deal TBD) I don't think anyone is surprised over the LA Rams' lack of interest in re-signing power running back Royce Freeman. The front office has a track record of adding bigger runners to the roster, but then letting them walk away with no fuss. Freeman signs with a team that is known to value runners, and could do well for the Cowboys in 2024.

Unsigned free agents

  • Ahkello Witherspoon, CB
  • Brian Allen, C (released by the team)
  • Duke Shelley, CB
  • Brett Maher, K
  • Carson Tinker, LS
  • John Johnson III, S
  • Brycen Hopkins, TE
  • Austin Trammell, KR/PR/WR

Don't be overly concerned or discouraged if the LA Rams are not jumping out to sign players. Early signings are often overpays, and are not necessarily the most successful signings nor the best value for the team.

So how does this change the Rams interior offensive line?

And quickly followed by this:

The next day, this became the story. It seems as though the LA Rams love to bring back former defensive backs for a reunion tour (i.e. Troy Hill, John Johnson III, and now, Darious Williams):

And now details of his pending contract have been released:

But what of the team's starting left tackle? The Rams have addressed that as well

And finally, the team extends a bargain pass rusher. But even I was surprised by the negativity that Hoecht's return seemed to inspire on social media.

And yet another free agent is added to the roster. This time it's Washington Commanders safety Kamren Curl

Meanwhile the first Rams player finally signed with a new team. Center Coleman Shelton will compete for a role on the Chicago Bears roster.

Meanwhile, the team is bringing back inside linebacker Christian Rozeboom. It's a fully guaranteed deal, but expected to come in less than $3 million:

But even as the team welcomes back one player, another player signs with a new team:

One of the better Rams players, IOL Tremayne Anchrum Jr., finally lands a contract. Unfortunately, it's to play for an NFC West Division rival, the Seattle Seahawks.

And then son thereafter, LA Rams young defensive end Jonah Williams will sign with the Minnesota Vikings.

With shallow depth on the offensive line, the Rams front office wisely chose to re-sign DT Larrell Murchison.

And then, the Rams deliver the piece de resistance, All-Pro DB Tre'Davious White:

The Rams have extended WR Tyler Johnson:

Former LA Rams backup quarterback Carson Wentz has agreed to terms with the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year deal:

And the Rams bring back a familiar face once more:

The Cowboys sign RB Royce Freeman.

The goal for any NFL team front office is to assemble a complete roster that is capable of winning an NFL Championship, not to get 90 players under contract on the first day of the legal tampering period. While you wait for news, why not check out our latest LA Rams seven-round mock draft?
