The LA Rams have gotten a lot done this offseason, mostly because they had to. The Rams lost their defensive coordinator to a head coaching position and then shuffled the deck in many ways when it comes to who is taking orders from Sean McVay. Additionally, LA lost some key players in free agency, such as safety John Johnson, and will have to replace several starters in all three phases of the game.
So what’s still left to be done?
NFL.com’s Marc Sessler posted a “Top remaining need” for all 16 NFC teams and his one for the Rams may not be what you expect:
Top priority: Matthew-McVay mind meld.
Micro-focused droid types are asking whether Brian Allen, Austin Corbett or Coleman Shelton will win the tussle to snap footballs to Matthew Stafford. From a bird’s-eye view (if winged beings care about such matters), I’m glued to the gridiron romance between Stafford and Sean McVay. The brainy coach greenlit a messy public breakup with Jared Goff to upgrade under center. The basic assumption is that Los Angeles is now a bona fide Super Bowl contender with Stafford flinging sidearm gems. Exiting Detroit was overdue, but can you name me the Five Biggest Matthew Stafford Moments That Rocked The Zeitgeist? I can’t, either. He and McVay are under pressure to author Sunday ecstasy come autumn.
What would you say is the LA Rams’ top remaining need as of mid-May?
