    It’s getting where you keep them for the rookie contract and then cut bait.

    Transition tag price is an average of the top 10 RB contracts. Without Gurley & Freeman (#'s 2 and 5 out of the top 10)...... That number drops quite a bit when they are removed.

    This question is tough to answer IMO but maybe someone knows.

    the Rams may have gotten better..... in the long term

    but not for next year.

    Extra $3mm of cap room lost.

    He did provide 900 yards and 14 TDs for them.

    It would be dumb for Drake not to consider other teams. Gurley is a perfect example as to why he should entertain offers. The $8.7 is good for one year. A longer term contract with more guaranteed money makes a lot more sense than one year especially if he gets hurt.

    Gurley had 54 TD’s the past 3 seasons. Damn knee injuries.

    If Drake stays here and negotiates a longer deal he will be a whole lot richer than risking playing just on a one year deal.

    I’d take a look at him. He seemed like he could effective with a smaller role. Guess it depends on how bad his knee is. They kept it under wraps pretty good.

    The title is way off. Gurley still had moments of greatness even last year. Gurley was still their best back.
