The LA Rams are not out of control, at least not just yet, when it comes to just how austere the front office is handling their reassembling effort for a new Rams roster, designed to compete in the 2023 NFL season. But as expected, the overwhelming number of young rookies is incredible, pushing the LA Rams coaching staff to the brink of anarchy and in some ways, beyond limits. A simple analogy is this: There are too many infants in the Rams nursery, and not enough nurses or baby bottles to care for all of them simultaneously.

While you may not enjoy the comparison to a hospital nursery, it does give significant meaning as to why there is a new to the LA Rams free agency efforts. Now, before we share who he is, it all may seem a bit surreal. After all, this is an LA Rams team who entered the 2023 NFL Draft with fewer than half of the 90-man roster filled. That goes against the principles of never drafting for need.

Real or surreal?

And yet, here we are. The LA Rams have a new free agency signing. Is this real? Or have I been duped by some Twitter doppelganger just for evil laughs?

"Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality
Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,"- Lyrics from Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody as sung on A Night At The Opera.

No, this is no fantasy. The LA Rams really did sign a veteran WR named Demarcus Robinson, who brings seven years of NFL experience to the Rams.

What do you know? A free agent signing for the LA Rams? Is this really happening?

WR Demarcus Robinson is not joining the LA Rams to save the team, to put up 1000+ receiving yards, or even to bump other players down the Rams depth chart. He is one more veteran wide receiver who adds plenty of been-there-done-that to a receiver room that is asking plenty of 'what are we doing now?' type of questions.
