Into the depths of the offseason and the lull of activity that comes with it. The Los Angeles Rams are still in Phase II of the offseason program with Phase III set to begin on Monday which at least provides us the reprieve of organized team activities and the optional mandatory minicamp which ends a month from today. And thereafter...welp. We’ll get over the desert as we do every year.But in today’s Football Morning in America for Pro Football Talk, Peter King lays out the baseline for the conventional wisdom for the Rams headed toward 2019. While he’s bullish on the Rams just as fans are, he dropped some nuggest on contract extensions for Rams CB Marcus Peters and one for Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott that brought to mind the looming extension for QB Jared Goff that offers more importance to the Rams’ future given the scope of those decisions.King put up a set of power rankings that confirm his backing of the Rams:4.) Los Angeles RamsKing’s not off base in shrugging off the Gurley knee saga now that the Rams have Memphis Tigers RB Darrell Henderson in tow with the 70th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. How the Rams reduce Gurley’s output whether it’s significantly more work for Henderson than what was given to RB Malcolm Brown a la what we saw in the playoff with RB C.J. Anderson or using the passing game to limit Gurley’s rushing production a la what we saw in the second half of the regular season, I’m not sure. I’m also not worried, because, as King notes, McBae will figure it out.No, the bigger issue lies in organizing the issues brought upon by the first wave of attrition from last year’s roster both on the offensive line (which King avoided for some reason) and the defense. And with the next wave coming next year possibly facing both starting cornerbacks Youth David Long Jersey , King’s right to point to that as a crucial flashpoint especially given the cost of the position.Both Talib and Peters are currently set to become free agents next offseason:2020 LA Rams Free AgentsPlayerPOSTypeOutcomePlayerPOSTypeOutcomeWhile adding Michigan Wolverines CB David Long at least offsets the potential loss at corner, the decision on whether or not to extend Peters is an incredibly important one given the position value. The Miami Dolphins just pushed the ceiling on the position by extending CB Xavien Howard with a five-year, $75.25m deal with $46m guaranteed, though the Dolphins have a quick out available after 2020 if they so choose. So it’s worth keeping the deals at corner in mind given that the Rams haven’t valued defensive backs as much as the market has with Rams Chief Operating Officer and Vice President Kevin Demoff and his Special Assistant Tony Pastoors overseeing contract negotiations. Rams Head Coach Sean McVay said in March that the Rams “absolutely” want to extend Peters, but I wouldn’t put much weight into comments on contracts from the head coach.Beyond Peters though, the biggest potential extension looming is one for QB Jared Goff. McVay weighed in on a Goff deal as well back at the NFL annual league meeting in March and was much less direct than he was with Peters saying:While King didn’t touch on Goff today, he did mention Prescott in his section on 10 things he thinks he thinks:I don’t know why you couldn’t literally say those exact same words for Goff. So it’s probably wisest to start thinking of $30m as the operable floor for a Goff deal even though there’s a TON to wade through next offseason on the quarterback market while there wasn’t much this year.In any case, King’s the ultimate arbiter of conventional wisdom across the NFL and has been for more than a decade. So for him to have the Rams in the top five with some strong inferences on potential extensions for Goff and Peters and a dismissal of the impact of Gurley’s knee injury Womens David Long Jersey , we’ve got a good sense of the building narratives around the Rams in 2019. With the 2018 season coming to an end, the Los Angeles Rams handed out their team awards, and some may seem like a shoe-in with others coming as a surprise:With a downright legendary season coming from DT Aaron Donald, he’s been named the team MVP. Donald has set the all-time single-season DT sack record, as well as the single-season Rams sack record. Both stand at 19.5 currently.Defensive end John Franklin-Myers won the Carroll Rosenbloom Memorial Award, given to the team’s rookie of the year. JFM has played sparingly, though has made the biggest impact from a rookie class that lacked a first or second round pick. JFM has two sacks on the season, one being a forced fumble.With the spear-heading of community events David Long Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , left tackle Andrew Whitworth receives the Carl Ekern Spirit of the Game Award. Big Whit was obviously the main factor in helping the victims of the Thousand Oaks shooting, as well as the turmoil around the wildfires that devastated the community.Cornerback Sam Shields is the Rams team recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award. Shieldsis likely an inspiration to the team as a player who nearly seen his career end over injury issues (concussions specifically), though he fought back and turned in a productive year.
