The Los Angeles Rams locked up their most explosive WR today with a massive contract extension.

This is significant news for the Rams and shows that they're willing to monetarily invest in the offense. The Rams offense was based on the combination of Just Todd Gurley and Tavon running jet sweeps as soon as Rob Boras took over in the middle of last season. So if nothing else you can be sure to see more of that in the future.

Tavon is an elite athlete, bu that's a shitload of money for a player who's never broken 1,000 yards from scrimmage in a season. I hope this is the Rams getting out in front of the situation, but Les Snead's history doesn't bode well for this.

Kudos to the Rams for learning from their mistakes this offseason. The onus is on Tavon to now play up to this contract.
