Random Ramsdom: Watch this entertaining in-game interaction between Rams receivers

Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 12/7/23

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Sports and football offer moments of real life interaction and it’s those moments that can bring fans so much joy. Los Angeles Rams receivers Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua recently had such an interaction during the Cleveland Browns game and it was caught on camera. Nacua asked Kupp if he is an Anime fan, and Kupp responds with a plain “No.”

I am not the right person to explain what Anime exactly is but simply put it’s a style of cartoon. I like cartoons and I do like some Anime’s, but not everyone does. Kupp clearly doesn’t. I have to think Puka is into it. Maybe I’ll get to talk to him about which Anime is his favorite.

A Rams fan can dream. Hey have a great day and thanks for checking out some links today!

Odell Beckham Jr. Reflects on Time With Rams, Wants to ‘Return the Favor’ (baltimoreravens)

“McVay kind of was the person through the whole situation…brought me back to loving football and understanding true professionalism and being prepared,” Beckham said. “It was one of the best things that’s happened in my life.

“There’s been other situations where I didn’t feel prepared the way that I felt prepared over there. The way they looked at film, dissected each play. I think McVay does an incredible job. We lost three games in a row and I watched him never waver. I’ve seen some coaches lose and you see a completely different person. He knows, for sure, I have nothing but the utmost love and respect for him.”

“Crosby played his first 16 NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers but did not re-sign with the team during the offseason. The veteran kicker went 24-for-25 from inside 50 yards last season but was 1-for-4 from kicks longer than 50 yards.

Crosby said that he worked out with the Rams about a month ago but that, at the time, “the timing wasn’t there.” He got a call Tuesday with the offer.

“With where this team is and trying to build and do something special here down the stretch, it feels like a good opportunity to continue to chase this dream,” Crosby said. “It’s every kid’s dream to play professional [football]. I’ve been fortunate enough to play for a long time, but I don’t take it for granted. I love every opportunity I have.”

Agent’s Take: Rams, Packers among NFL teams with largest dead money salary cap charges in 2023 (cbssports)

“Potential dead money subject to a grievance is not included in the calculations. Neither are potential expenses from termination pay since a player must submit paperwork during a small time frame right after the regular season ends in order to collect. The NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement’s $295 daily amount for participating in a team’s voluntary offseason workout program is also included in dead money when applicable.

Los Angeles Rams

Dead money: $78.64 million

Adjusted salary cap: $224,868,312

Dead money percentage: 34.97%

Biggest charges

Allen Robinson (WR): $21.45 million (5th)

Jalen Ramsey (CB): $19.6 million (8th)

Leonard Floyd (Edge): $19 million (9th)

Going from Super Bowl champions to missing the playoffs last season with a 5-12 record led to the Rams changing course as the “Eff Them Picks” approach to roster building started catching up with them. The Rams were supposed to be punting on the 2023 season and looking to 2024 by cleaning up the salary cap for the future after stripping down the defense. Surprisingly, the Rams are in contention for an NFC wild card playoff berth with a 6-6 record.”
