Yes, this week is all about free agency. With tampering fully underway and the window opening on Wednesday at 4pm ET, the rumors are about to come flying in with signings alongside them.
After acquiring Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib and Sam Shields, so much for thinking the Rams will target a cornerback with this pick. Instead, the Rams’ top need now is arguably edge rusher. Landry is a speed demon off the edge, and at the least can replicate the type of play they got from Robert Quinn.
The need is obvious. And with a weak class of pass rushers in free agency, it would seem the only avenue to add talent for 2018 will be the draft. But right now, we’ve got a wild 96 hours in front of us that is going to remake plenty of the roster.
We’ll have to see what it holds for a couple of other positions of need, but I’d be shocked if we don’t come out of free agency still needing a pass rusher.
Thoughts on Landry? Any mid-round pass rushers you like, Rams fans? Comfortable with Landry as the odds-on favorite at this point?
