C John Sullivan Visits LA Rams

Could Sully be the fill-in for the Rams’ hole at center?

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Former long-time Minnesota Vikings and Washington center John Sullivan visited the Los Angeles Rams on Monday, per Alden Gonzalez of ESPN:

Here’s the full quote:

The Rams, still in need of a starting center, brought John Sullivan in for a visit on Monday. Sullivan was one of the more under-appreciated centers while starting 93 of 96 games for the Vikings from 2009-14. Missed all of 2015 with an injury, got released and was a backup with Washington last year, where Sean McVay was offensive coordinator.

Sullivan spent the 2016 season with the Washington Redskins, which means he is a familiar face for Sean McVay. Sullivan was extremely healthy and reliable in Minnesota as he spent 7 seasons there and almost every year started 16 games. His 2015 season was injury riddled, and ultimately the Vikings decided to move on. Sullivan then latched on in Washington last season and made an appearance in 13 games.

The addition of John Sullivan would likely only spell as a short term fix as he’s 31 years old, but for a guy with experience in McVay’s scheme, and more help for the Rams line, it can only be a good thing.
