With just under two weeks until the start of the new league year, the Rams need to hurry up and decide whether or not they want to keep guys like Cory Littleton or Dante Fowler Jr.

The Chargers made an uncharacteristically bold move on Tuesday when they traded left tackle Russell Okung for offensive guard Trai Turner. If the Rams become complacent, they might find themselves on the wrong end of the “Fight for LA” and they can’t afford to do that with their inaugural season in SoFi later on this year.

“Los Angeles traded for the former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back before the deadline last fall. The Rams are in win-now mode and gave up the farm to get a star player of Ramsey’s caliber.
