The Los Angeles Rams have made probably the easiest decision they’ll have to make in the year exercising fifth-year options on RB Todd Gurley and newly acquired CB Marcus Peters:

Here are the prices for both options:

Obviously this was a no brainer for the Rams. Both Gurley and Peters were picked in the 2015 NFL Draft. Both are two-time pro bowlers. Also, Gurley won the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, meanwhile Peters won the Defensive Rookie of the year award.

Gurley is coming off one of the most dominant seasons in recent memory for an RB with a combined 2,093 yards and 19 touchdowns in only 15 games. He was the 10th overall pick in the draft.

Peters is the games premier ballhawk at CB with 19 interceptions and six forced fumbles in only three years. Peters was the 18th overall pick in the draft.

Now, onto long term extensions...
