Goff- 24
Gurley- 8
DeSean- 3.5

Various others.

Woods and Akers back.

Maybe Morris will be gone. Next year might be looking better than this year.

Money to spend on D-line, DB, MLB'ers and O-line if needed. Who needs draft picks LOL....

If you also figure Whitworth probably will retire, that is another 6.5 mil.
Cap will also increase next year, so Rams could be very active in free agency.

I do believe this game is still won in the trenches. Hope they use the funds wisely.
Nothing better than a Rams win, but a Niner loss comes pretty close.

You still need good high draft picks to take advantage of premium talent at a discount, unless you’re drafting gadget receivers and ignoring team needs.

Getting Gurley and Goff off the books is vital but lots of that money is already committed to current players, unless I’m reading this wrong.

Rams ten highest paid players 2021 - approx $82 mil.

Rams ten highest paid players 2022 - approx $169 mil

Well - I was just kidding about the draft picks but this seems like a deja vu moment to me-I think we have had a similar conversation a few years ago.......

The deja vu is probably from the name Todd Gurley.

Rams have been paying him not to perform for a long time.

I would imagine there will be some restructuring going on with some of those contracts as well - Rams will probably try and resign OBJ and Miller.

They have to decide on Noteboom. Pay him or let him go in free agency.

I sure hope we wait on signing EVERYONE. This team needs to prove it to me. I don’t care what a player has done in the past (OBJ, Miller, even Stafford). It’s all about what have you done for us lately and what we expect from them going forward.

We’ve gone all in this season…

There’s actually not much that they can restructure outside of a possible Stafford extension ( not an ideal option considering his recent play)because they have already pushed a lot money forward already. The limited cap room that they have available will be needed to sign some of their own free agents.

They won’t have cap room until 2023. Lot of back loaded deals. But they’ll get that ridiculous dead money off the books at least.

shocked at how much they are paying Higbee. Agree with MV the focus should be in the trenches because that is where the game is won.

Gurley was a mistake but an understandable one. At the time, nobody was complaining. But Goff, I will defintiely blame the Rams for, mostly McVay. Once you decide to do this, you own it. You make it work. They should have taken all of the dead money out of his pay.
