As the Rams bid adieu to some trusty veterans, a new crop of OL troops is ready to sprout. Will the Rams’ decision to sacrifice experience for value and youth pay off?

Clay Matthews has plenty to offer Los Angeles Rams on defense | Ramblin’ Fan

It’s mostly his hair that he has to offer. Because, as a follicularly challenged individual, I can say without hesitation that it’s magnificent. But can he do as well or better than Connor Barwin did for LA in 2017? I’m in that camp, with the Pantene.

Los Angeles Rams: Pros and cons of potentially signing Clay Matthews | FanSided

Again, I’m comfortable with Matthews assuming role of Main Mane in the Rams... sorry... that’s terrible. But you get my drift. Barwin set a pretty low bar, and yet that bar was not eclipsed by Samson Ebukam in 2018. There’s a reason to add some well-coifed veteran savvy.

Todd Gurley’s injured knee has Rams offering only ‘shades of gray’ | OC Register

Fifty of them, to be exact. I love me some Rich Hammond, but why he’s confusing a poorly written Skinemax teleplay for the status of a man’s knee is beyond me. For reals, though, the saga surrounding TG’s knee and the Rams bound-and-gagged approach is anything but sexy.

Rams have $8.8 million in salary-cap space after losing Rodger Saffold and Lamarcus Joyner | LA Times

Are we a re-structure away from adding another interesting piece? Or are we going to stand pat and see who’s floating around after the draft? My vote is for the latter.

John Johnson on Weddle’s game, personality fitting in with the Rams: “He can do it all.” | Rams Official

Weddle would go on to say “I believe he can fly,” and when watching tape was heard to blurt out “This is how he does it.”

Daily Dose: The risk and reward of re-signing Dante Fowler | Rams Official

Easily the most questionable Rams move of the offseason: the Rams let Rodger Saffold walk in favor of enigmatic EDGE Dante Fowler, Jr. Another (expensive) youth-based choice for the Rams.

6 moves the Rams can make to create $40.5M in cap space | RamsWire

Great stuff from Cam DaSilva who will feed your “what if” fantasies. It’s rife with pipe dreams, but something tells me Les Snead (who also has excellent hair) has at least explored most of these options.

Eric Weddle says Sean McVay is the ‘complete opposite’ of most guys | RamsWire

It’s a nice sign of repsect for the young HC from a veteran — especially considering that Weddle is older than McVay. Did anyone think McVay himself would be the draw when we tabbed the mystery boy wonder during the 2016 offseason?
