The first Sunday of the NFL season is just two days away but teams won’t ever stop making moves to better their teams throughout the season. Whether it’s trades and/or signing free agents, the gears are always turning inside the minds of coaches and general managers.
Per Brad Gagnon, who just released an updated version of his “best free agent option for each NFL team” article, the Rams should attempt to kick the tires on former Broncos and Cowboys offensive guard Ronald Leary.
“Joseph Noteboom, Austin Corbett and David Edwards all struggled at the guard position for the Los Angeles Rams in 2019, and Brian Allen didn’t perform well at center. The Rams have reason to feel OK about Austin Blythe in the middle, but all of their guards should be on short leashes entering 2020.”
“That means Leary should be on top of their call list.”
“He might not have a lot left, but an upgrade is an upgrade, and his talent and experience could really help a team that is doing its best to cling to contention this year.”
That last sentence is what I want to highlight. The Rams, after failing to make the playoffs at 9-7 last year, and who are playing in the toughest division in the NFL, will be doing everything they can to not only compete, but to stay alive for the postseason this year. Leary’s presence wouldn’t do anything but improve their offensive line in a season where it needs to be at it’s best with a pair of young running backs working behind it.
Go ahead and give us your thoughts on this potential move in the comments. Would this signing be ideal or no?
