Somehow, the Los Angeles Rams are still alive within the postseason picture at 6-7. The league has seen a lot of parity come to surface over the last few weeks, especially, and that's given the Rams a fighting chance.
Even though Los Angeles is still alive, though, there are plenty of clear issues they need to fix going into next season. It's never too early to look ahead.
There are several positions needing an upgrade, but these four players, specifically, are goners after the 2023 campaign is up.
1. Larrell Murchison, DE
First up is defensive end Larrell Murchison who is set to become a free agent in 2024. This is definitely a position the Rams are hurting at, and it's not just Murchison who is to blame. Although, the fact that he's a free agent next spring is going to make it easy for the team to move on.
Murchison has also only been a rotational and situational type of pass rusher, accounting for just 184 snaps on the season. In his 93 pass rushing snaps, though, he has not accumulated a single sack and only accounted for five total pressures. He's been bad against the run, too, and the Rams should be quick to allow him to leave next spring.
The Rams currently have three defensive ends graded in the bottom third of the league, via Pro Football Focus, so again, Murchison is not the only one this team should try and move on from. He is one of a few.
