Re: Todd Gurley suggests “lockout” to get fully guaranteed deals

They could keep the system in place only add buy out clauses that don't count against the cap...kinda like baseball.

Everybody wins.....players get money and can become free agents and owners can keep their payroll under the cap.

Re: Demoff: Talks with Aaron Donald have been 'great'

I'll say it again - there isn't any money to sign Donald this year unless.... He agrees to a contract extension that will begin paying him money next year. It's a simple as that. He won't see a penny this year because we don't have it... So why is he holding out? If I'm the Rams and his demands are...

Re: What 1 Mistake is McVay Making? (survey)

I could not disagree more. Offense wouldn’t be what it is if he wasn’t calling plays. He has a mind to see things in regards to play calling that so few will ever have. If it’s not broken don’t try to fix it. Again....him calling the plays has nothing to do with him acting as both HC and OC. I now ...

I would like to see the TE's more involved. Not sure this was a McV issue moreso than the players not ready to handle what he wants them to do.

Re: Stop freaking about AD enjoy summer

Regarding AD, imo, he is under contract and should be out there. I would feel more sympathetic to him sitting out to force the issue if he was under the franchise tag. Why? His contract was forced on him just as a Tag designation would be....only he would be making a ton more money while tagged.

Re: Despite Impressive 2017, Gurley Still Looking to Improve

I'm actually hoping that the Rams find a way to rely him less next year. --- Good for the offense as a whole not to overuse him while it extends his career and keep him fresh all season/ playoffs. Agree. Plus when other teams this season use the Falcons’ scheme to take away the RB screen, we have t...

Donald risks 80 or 90 mil in guaranteed money should he step onto a field without a long term contract. This when NFL players are trying to challenge the pay structure in professional sports.
Rest assured he would insure himself....not uncommon in the NFL as guys are tagged every year.

I think we are gonna be surprised with the play of all three of our tight ends this season...just a hunch I've got
I know McV wants more out of the TE position than last year....so, if the guys are up to the task they can be a weapon in his offense.

IMO they'll both get huge signing bonuses with a lot of the contract guaranteed and the rest will be spread out evenly over the terms of the contract or back loaded...

Re: REAL REASON WHY DONALD AND COOKS HAVEN'T SIGNED

It's about guaranteed money. Any contract Donald signs won't effect his pay for this year, but, it is guaranteed money. So if he gets hurt this year the Rams still have to pay him that money. If he doesn't sign a new contract and gets hurt this year then the Rams only owe him the balance of his cur...

The 3 best tight ends? They have a long way to go to just be good at this point.

Re: REAL REASON WHY DONALD AND COOKS HAVEN'T SIGNED

The Rams and AD have been attempting to get a deal done since before last season began...he must be very patient waiting on Mack.

Cooks is new to the city and team, not even sure if that's the place for him yet.

I'm not saying the guys you mention aren't factors....just not sold they are THE reason.

I can't say I have warmed to the color rush....I think that gimmick should be shelved.

If they want to try uniforms, one game a year, try one of those Nike sponsored uniforms that can be viewed on the internet....I like those over those color rush mish mash.
