    Reports are O'Brien and Hopkins had a big fall out that facilitated the trade.

    I am not sure if there is going to be a big market for Gurley until it gets easier for teams to get medical exams done. Heck if I was a team I wouldn’t trust anyone but my team doctors, he is a huge risk.

    Watch the Rams make an offer to Drake.

    They have about $10 Million in cap space, so they could, but no more signings.

    Yep, seems like separation was the only option between Hopkins and O'Brien.

    Dumb move to sign him to that contract and put yourself in the corner. Trading and adding a #2 rounder wasn't going to help either.

    So basically they now have 7 millions more than before but no players to speak of and have to restructure some contracts to be able to sign the rookie class and 1 FA.


    Basically Rams have lack of young talent, a young QB that isn't all that great and a D that is on the decline.


    I wouldn't be surprised if they post a losing season 7-9 or something like that.

    For Gurley, sign him for a 1 year prove it deal, Drake and him could make a really nice double punch and maybe a nice copmensation when someone forgets all the problems and signs him again to a great deal.

    Oh and Drakes Tag should now go down to around 8.2 Mio if I'm not mistaken whit Gurleys cut, so basically we won 300k $ by doing nothing

    The Rams won’t come out and say it but they are rebuilding.

    They went all in. Signed everybody and anybody they could and now are sitting there with very minimal draft picks and no cap space.

    I would definitely sign Gurley if drake signs with another team. I honestly would rather have Gurley to be honest.

    their offense should be good enough

    Their D will have two top tier players in Donald and Ramsey

    they will be competitive.

    They did go all in a couple years ago. Remember the offseason when they signed every big name free agent there was, and fit them all by giving them screwy extended contracts. Win now, pay later. Well, they almost won. Now they have to deconstruct and start over. That's the trouble you get into , trying to win by adding free agents. They cost five to ten times as much as home grown young guys.

    He's toast, no thanks. Draft an RB in the draft and call it.

    Unless I'm getting Gurley practically free, I agree. No thanks.
