Wade Phillips’ L.A. Rams defense has pretty much everything

1 post in this topic

but a Von Miller. It almost got one , apparently.Via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times, Rams COO Kevin Demoff admits that the Rams made a play for the 2016 defensive player of the year, who would have been paired with the 2017 defensive player of the year, Aaron Donald.“We offered a pretty aggressive package and they came back and said, e just think youe going to pick too low,'” Demoff said.It’s hard to imagine that the Rams could have found a way to pay Donald, who’s getting $22.5 million per year in new money, and Mack, who got $23.5 million per year in new money from the Bears, along with the other stars they’ve already paid (Todd Gurley Joe Barksdale Jersey , Brandin Cooks) and those still to come (Jared Goff). It’s even harder to understand why the Rams admitted this publicly.This feels like more than an effort to create sizzle in the City of Angels by bragging about failed attempts to land a key player. Maybe the general message is that the Rams will be in play for every major player who is unhappy with his current contract and who may want out.The specific message may be intended for someone who currently plays in L.A. With Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa being the next defensive player who is poised for a potential contract fight with his current team, the admitted pursuit of Mack represents a signal to Camp Bosa that, if the Chargers won’t pay Bosa what he wants, maybe the Rams will. The Chargers said farewell to one of their 2018 draft picks while making their way to 53 players on Saturday.Wide receiver Dylan Cantrell was a sixth-round pick in April, but he couldn’t find a way to stick on the roster. If he clears waivers, he could return to one of the 10 spots on the practice squad.In addition to the previously reported cut of kicker Roberto Aguayo, the Chargers also waived defensive lineman Patrick Afriyie, tight end Braedon Bowman, cornerback Tony Brown, cornerback B.J. Clay Authentic Casey Hayward Jersey , linebacker Kyle Coleman, offensive lineman Chris Durant, cornerback Marcus Edmond, offensive lineman Zach Golditch, tight end Je'Ron Hamm, safety Micah Hannemann, defensive lineman Marcus Hardison, safety A.J. Hendy, linebacker D'Juan Hines, defensive lineman Bijhon Jackson Youth Melvin Ingram Jersey , tight end Ben Johnson, wide receiver Justice Liggins, fullback Anthony Manzo-Lewis, wide receiver Andre Patton, offensive lineman Spencer Pulley, cornerback Jeff Richards, defensive lineman Steve Richardson, defensive lineman Whitney Richardson, offensive lineman Trent Scott, quarterback Nic Shimonek , wide receiver Nelson Spruce, cornerback Channing Stribling, punter Shane Tripucka, running back Terrell Watson, and offensive lineman Erick Wren.Tight end Hunter Henry was placed on the regular season PUP list, which leaves open the option of a return after six weeks. Henry tore his ACL in the spring, however, and will almost certainly miss the whole season.Wide receiver Artavis Scott was placed on injured reserve and offensive lineman Brett Boyko, running back Russell Hansbrough and tight end Cole Hunt were waived/injured to round out the moves by the Chargers.
