    The Rams are illustrating why @Gandhi is wrong about the salary cap not mattering. True, you can push money into future years and the cap keeps going up... but eventually you have to pay the piper.

    Man, you really gotta give keim credit for pulling that trade. It's by far the move of the 2020 off season. Just wish we could have also traded our 5th round pick 5o bring Calais back home.

    It was a horrible extension at the time as well. Not only would his rookie deal have ended this year but they extended him before Donald.

    Before they cut Gurley, they were ten OVER the cap.

    The Rams have to make another move just to get to the cap. They also have to account for over $4 million for their rookie pool. And if they want to sign any injury replacements? They need more space.

    What they can do is find a way to get rid of Cooks and extend Ramsey. This means Ramsey will get a sweetheart deal since he will be bargaining from a position of strength.

    Or restructure Goff which means...make his contract even worse in the following years.

    Right now they will start Leonard Floyd on the edge and????

    And who at ILB????

    If the Rams had never extended Gurley and instead picked up his 5th year option his Rams contracts would be expiring... now. Essentially, the moment his extension actually kicked in, they cut him.

    Moral of the story: Extensions after year 3 are stupid for any player, big extensions for running backs are flat out dumb at this point.
