MAILBAG: What could Sam Sh Arizona Cardinals custom jersey ields’ Role be with Los Angeles?

Rams insider Myles Simmons answers your Twitter questions on Los Angeles’ offseason moves.

A lot has happened in the last couple weeks for your Los Angeles Rams, and understandably many of you have questions about the team. While I can’t get to all the ones you tweeted to me in this space, here’s a few answers for the week after the new league year.


Good question, Pierson. As of right now, it seems like Shields will provide depth at outside corner behind starters Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. That’s especially because the Rams re-signed Nickell Robey-Coleman to remain the team’s slot corner.

At his best, Shields was a Pro Bowl-caliber cornerback who had a knack for making interceptions. He picked off 18 passes from when he entered the league in 2010 through 2015.

But then Shields suffered what was reportedly his fourth diagnosed concussion at the beginning of the 2016 season, which sidelined him for essentially the last two years.

General manager Les Snead said that the Rams have been interested in Shields for a while, and that the club wanted to be on the corner’s list of teams to visit once he was ready to re-enter the league. And for his part, Shields said he has no more headaches and  arizona cardinals custom jersey is completely medically cleared.

Obviously aware of the moves Los Angeles has made, Shields said after signing that he’s willing to play any spot to get back on the field — including on special teams. But, as we saw last year, depth at outside corner is always important. So even if Shields and Hill — and Kayvon Webster, for that matter — aren’t in the starting lineup, chances are they’ll all get a chance to play over the course of the season.


This was going to be the lead question, but as I was writing the piece the Rams went and agreed to terms with free agent linebacker Ramik Wilson. So know that going in. Doesn’t necessarily change the answer, but it may have been a bit different.

I tend to think that the answer may be both. Alec Ogletree played a vital role within the Rams’ defense as its signal-caller, and that’s clearly the biggest void L.A. will have to fill. But Snead mentioned last week that at least internally, Cory Littleton is a player who may be able to step in and fill part of Ogletree’s role. And Snead also said, “maybe you add another piece that can do some things Alec did.”

Does that mean draft? Sure, it could. The Rams do have nine draft picks — four in the first four rounds. But L.A. could sign more ILBs on the open market. Clearly the club has already added Wilson as of Thursday afterno personalized Cardinals football jersey on — who carries the added benefit of professional experience.

But this is a position the Rams seem likely to continue to look at throughout the offseason.


So the Rams do currently have five sixth-round picks, but in terms of packaging them to get into the second round… that sort of feels unlikely.

I see it like this. If you look at the point value chart many general managers around the league use — I checked out this one from — then you see that the highest point value the Rams have in the 6th round is 20.6. That’s No. 176 overall.

The lowest pick in the second round — No. 64 overall, which belongs to the Browns — is valued at 270 points. I’m not great at math, but even if you don’t account for the fact that the rest of the sixth-round picks will continue to Men’s Nike Customized Arizona Cardinals Elite Alternate Black Jersey Sale  lose value, multiplying 20.6 by five only gets you to just over 100 points.

If the Rams are going to get a pick or two in the second round, I think it’s probably more likely that the club trades down from No. 23 than trades up.


That doesn’t appear to be the case. Snead was asked about three players who suffered injuries in 2017 last week — kicker Greg Zuerlein, tight end Temarrick Hemingway, and cornerback Kayvon Webster — and said only Webster may take a little more time to recover because of the serious nature of the injury. As a follow up, Snead was asked if that meant both Hemingway and Zuerlein were on track with their recoveries, and the general manager answered in the affirmative.

So as least for now, seems like things are looking up for the Rams’ All-Pro kicker. Yes, the Rams kept Ficken, but that appears to just be for insurance/a potential camp leg.


There’s nothing really concrete to report when it comes to Barwin, but Snead indicated last week that the Rams are interested in bringing him back for 2018.

The GM was asked about center John Sullivan during his media availability and said, “We’re talking with John and his people right now.”

A couple days later, the Rams had come to terms with Sullivan on a new two-year deal.

What does this have to do with Barwin? Well, Snead was asked about Barwin as a follow-up question and replied, “We’re talking with them right now as well.”

So, Snead essentially said the same thing about a pair of veteran players. Because one got signed, that could mean the other is next. But as of this writing, there’s no concrete news to report.


This is a very good question, but at this point it doesn’t quite have an answer. Davis was a key special teams contributor on the Rams since 2013, using his speed as a weapon to bring down returners. In 2017, Davis saw a bit of an expanded role on defense, but landed on injured reserve in Week 8 after suffering a quad injury. He was activated for Week 17 and the postseason, where Davis was able to contribute once again.

Certainly wish him well as he makes his way to Jacksonville for the 2018 season. But as for who will replace him, that’s probably not going to be truly determined until training camp. The Rams do have players like Blake Countess and Isaiah Johnson on their roster, who can provide depth at safety. But as for who takes the roles on special teams — it’s a little too hard to say in March.

Really appreciate the question all the way from Sweeden, though!


I’ve seen a bunch of potential nicknames for the Rams’ secondary, and I think Jim has a good idea — let’s have a contest. I don’t know what the prize will be, and I’m not sure how we’ll determine a winner. But if you’ve got a suggestion, go ahead and tweet it to me @MylesASimmons. We’ll figure it out.

Peters, Talib Have Natural Instinct For Forcing Takeaw Custom Phillies Jersey ays

Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib are both shutdown corners who have displayed a strong ability to force turnovers throughout their careers.

Rams cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib are both shutdown corners who have displayed a strong ability to force turnovers throughout their careers.

Since he entered the league in 2015, Peters leads the NFL with 19 regular-season interceptions. The next player on the list has just 15 picks.

Talib holds a similar mark, leading the league with 34 regular season interceptions since his rookie season of 2008. He’s also recorded the most interceptions returned for touchdowns (10) of any active player in the NFL.

In total, throughout their respective careers, the duo has a combined 53 interceptions and 12 pick-sixes. According to head coach Sean McVay, high production such as this requires a special set of playmakers.

“You can see that these are both cerebral players, the way that they play the game above the neck,” McVay said recently. “You talk about the instinc Men’s Philadelphia Phillies Authentic Personalized Home White Baseball Jersey ts, the aware ness — these are guys that really have that.”

While takeaways are a point of emphasis for defensive backs across the NFL, Talib and Peters are unique talents. As defensive coordinator Wade Phillips put it, both possess skills that are “not taught,” but instead come from natural instincts.

“I think both of them are really smart, they study the game, they know the receivers, and they anticipate things,” he said. “Some guys guess, these guys anticipate and when it happens they are able to make plays.”

Peters describes it in more simple terms — “see ball, get ball.”

“It’s as easy as that,” Peters said. “I’m a person of confidence in myself, so I’m not going to panic on nothing. When it’s time for the ball to be in the air, I’m going to see the ball and I’m going to get the ball. And if I can’t get it, I’m trying to get it to my teammates.”

For Talib,  Customized Philadelphia Phillies Jersey his individual success at forcing turnovers is about film study and preparation, making sure he’s consistently one of the hardest workers on field.

“I’m a smart player and I care about the game. It shows in my play,” he said. “I just listen to my coach, they tell you to go near side Custom Phillies Jersey Cheap lines. A lot of guys run like a chicken with their heads cut off. [But] just catch the ball and go near sidelines and then you’ll score.”

With clear elite traits already in place, McVay is excited to see what Peters and Talib are capable of in the 2018 season.

“These are guys that you can see are really smart, intellectual players — how that enables them to be able to play aggressively and attack the football from a defensive perspective,” McVay said. “They will clearly make us better on the backend. ”

2018 Rams Mock Draft Rou Custom Phillies Jersey ndup: Sixth Edition

Catch up on the latest analyst predictions for the Rams’ first-round pick in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft.

After the first week of the new league year, analysts have begun to shift their focus a bit for the Rams’ first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. By acquiring both Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, Los Angeles has turned cornerback from a position of need into a clear strength.

Now, analysts are predicting the Rams could choose anyone from an offensive lineman, to an edge rusher, to an inside linebacker.

Without further ado, let’s get to the picks for our sixth 2018 mock draft roundup.


We’ll start with a popular mock draft pick this week: Boston College edge rusher Harold Landry.

At the Ringer, analyst Danny Kelly writes, “Landry is coming off a down year in which he battled through an ankle injury, but when healthy in 2016, the former Boston College star was one of the top pass rushers in the nation. He’d get plenty of one-on-one opportunities lined up next to Aaron Donald.”

Luke Easterling of USA Today Draftwire is a bit more detailed, saying that L.A. could go with a replacement for recently traded middle linebacker Alec Ogletree or a potential successor for left tackle Andrew Whitworth. But instead, he has the club selecting Landry as an edge rusher.

“He has great athleticism, especially for a 252-pound player,” Easterling adds. “He has great first-step acceleration and great bend off the edge, which allows him to get under offensive tackles and blow right past them. He has very good hand usage, as well. Although he’s not a finished product as a run defender, partially due to a lack of impressive upper-body strength, he did improve as bit in that area last year.”

NFL Media’s Chad Reuter was also on the Landry train this week, writing, “Trading away Robert Quinn creates an opportunity for Landry to make an immediate impact, even if Connor Barwin is re-signed.”

Landry recorded 28.0 sacks and 47.5 tackles for loss in his collegiate career. He tallied a career high 16.5 sacks and 22.0 TFLs as a junior in 2016, before suffering a season-ending ankle injury as a senior that limited his production.  Women’s Philadelphia Phillies Authentic Personalized Home White Baseball Jersey He checked in at 6-foot-3 and 252 pounds and ran a 4.64 40-yard dash, put up 24 reps on the bench press, and recorded a 36-inch vertical at the Combine.

Reuter’s latest mock spanned five rounds, which means three more picks for L.A. In this scenario, Reuter has the Rams selecting Iowa linebacker Josey Jewell at No. 87 overall in Rd. 3, Nevada guard Austin Corbett at No. 111 in Rd. 4, and North Carolina State defensive tackle B.J. Hill at No. 135 in Rd. 4.


Sticking at edge rusher, two analysts have the Rams selecting UT-San Antonio’s Marcus Davenport.

Dan Kadar of SB Nation writes, “After shipping out Robert Quinn the Rams are in need of an edge rusher or two. They could get one in Davenport, who specializes in using a bull rush, length and quickness. He’s not a finished product by any means, but he can do enough to at least be a specialist to start his career.”

Dane Brugler of has similar analysis, writing, “Defensive end was a need before Robert Quinn was dealt to Miami, making an upgrade at pass rusher even more important now. Davenport is still raw in areas, but he can provide immediate juice off the edge and be the team’s ‘new’ Quinn.”

Davenport recorded 22.0 sacks and 38.0 at UTSA — both program records. His 6.5 sacks and 10.0 tack Custom Phillies Jersey les for loss were enough to get him named Conference USA’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2017. Davenport attended the Senior Bowl before checking in at the NFL Combine at 6-foot-6 and 264 p ounds. He ran a 4.58 40-yard dash and put up 22 reps on the bench press in Indianapolis.


Filling another potential position of need, R.J. White of CBS Sports has Los Angeles selecting Boise State inside linebacker Leighton Vander Esch.

“The Rams threw a lot of resources at upgrading their secondary while dealing away linebackers Robert Quinnand Alec Ogletree this offseason. That makes both rush linebacker and inside linebacker a need for the team heading into the draft. Vander Esch is the last blue-chip linebacker available,” White writes, adding he’s a good fit for defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ 3-4 scheme.

The 2017 Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year, Vander Esch spent just one year as a starter but made the most of it. He recorded 141 total tackles — including 8.5 for loss — with 4.0 sacks, four forced fumbles, five passes defensed, and a pair of interceptions. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 256 pounds, Vander Esch ran a 4.65 40-yard dash, put up 20 reps on the bench press, and recorded a 39.5-inch vertical at the NFL Combine.


For an offensive pick, NFL Media’s Bucky Brooks has L.A. taking a local prospect in his latest mock: UCLA offensive tackle Kolton Miller.

“After impressing scouts with his spectacular performance at the NFL Scouting Combine, Miller will pique the interest of teams looking for a developmental OT prospect in the back half of Round 1. Miller could back up Andrew Whitworth for a year or so before sliding into the starting lineup as a franchise tackle,” Brooks writes.

Miller is a large man, listed at 6-foot-9 and 310 pounds. He started all 13 games at left tackle for the Bruins in 2017, protecting the blindside of quarterback Josh Rosen — a potential top-five draft pick. Miller was named second-team All-Pac-12 for his performance.


Finally, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated’s The MMQB has Los Angeles picking another offensive lineman: Iowa center/guard James Daniels.

“Billy Price’s torn pec opens the door for Daniels to nudge past his Big Ten counterpart, and to the Rams—who have a long-term need at center, which happens to be a position Sean McVay values greatly,” Breer writes.

Declaring for the draft following his junior season, Daniels has been a major contributor to the Hawkeyes’ offense since his true freshman year in 2015. He started a pair of games at left guard as a freshman, but then moved to center in 2016 where he started 11 games as a sophomore and 12 games as a junior. Listed at 6-foot-3 and 295 pounds, Daniels put up 21 reps in the bench press at the Combine.

Rams Visit Union Avenue to Recog Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey Red nize LAUSD’s Student and Teacher of the Month

The Los Angeles Rams visited Union Avenue Elementary to recognize LAUSD’s Student and Teacher of the Month in partnership with CBS-2/KCAL-9.

On Wednesday, March 7, the Los Angeles Rams visited Union Avenue Elementary to recognize LAUSD’s Student and Teacher of the Month in partnership with CBS-2/KCAL-9. As part of the celebration, fourth grade student Skyler Imperialbobis and first grade teacher Ms. Samantha Pulliam were honored in an all-school assembly in which CBS’ famous sports anchor Jim Hill and Rams Tight End TYLER HIGBEE praised their achievements. Higbee also awarded each honoree four tickets to the Rams’ 2018 season opener and encouraged Skyler to keep pushing himself before thanking Ms. Pulliam and all the teachers for the time and effort they put into educating our youth.

“To Ms. Pulliam and all the teachers here at Union Avenue Elementary, I want to thank you because you’re the ones that lead the way and make everything happen,” said Higbee. “The time and effort that you put in is second to none and I want to personally thank you.”

With a strong passion for teaching, Ms. Pulliam serves as a perfect example of an educator who has dedicated herself to i Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey mproving the lives of her students and their families. She recently obtained the high achievement of becoming a National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy and is fully committed to teaching all her students how to read. Even from a young age, Pulliam would accompany her mother, who taught at Union Avenue in the same classroom, leaving her destined to be a teacher at the school her mom once served.

“I’ve known since I was a kid that this was what I wanted to do because I saw the difference it made in kids lives,” said Pulliam. “I wanted to make an impact like that. As soon as I heard that Union Avenue Elementary had an opening, I knew that this is where I belong because my heart has always been here. I didn’t choose this, it chose me.”

Excelling in all academic subjects, Skyler Imperialbobis makes an effort to help his peers in the classroom in areas they might be struggling. He enjoys science fiction movies and books, and is currently writing a script for the school’s Youth Cinema Project. On a day that Skyler surely won’t forget, he made sure to express his gratitude for those who continue to support him on his journey.

“I feel very honored to have been chosen to receive this award and I’ll always remember this moment in my life,” said Skyler. “I have to say thank you to all the people that have helped in school and at home and I appreciate everything the people in my life do to help me achieve my goals. Having so many important and famous people, like Tyler Higbee, come out to my school to honor me and hearing them speak about my accomplishments felt great. This is the biggest thing that has ever happened to me and it’s one of my favorite days in my entire life.”

Before Skyler took his bow in front of the cheerin Toronto Blue Jays Red Jersey g student body and staff, CBS’ legendary sports anchor Jim Hill made sure to remind Skyler that his efforts are not only important for he and his family, but for our society at large.

“Skyler, we need you,” said Hill. “We need your enthusiasm, knowledge, and we need you to be the very best you can be. Our country is going to keep improving because of people like you.”

Union Avenue Principal, Veronica Herrera, believes the event was a great opportunity to expose her students to role models and opportunities within our LA community while recognizing a few of the school’s exceptional performers.

“I think this is a wonderful opportunity for students to really get to see the world and the opportunities out there,” said Herrera. “Today they saw all these wonderful role models and it shows them that good things can happen in their lives. We’re a hub to many different students from many different parts of the world and this is to connect with people in our community who are wonderful and who care.”

Before the assembly was dismissed, tight end Tyler Higbee wanted to leave the student body with one last piece of advice about the role education played in his own journey.

“Even as a professional football player now, it all started here in the classroom,” said Higbee. “Growing up, I wasn’t able to be out on the field unless I got my grades right. So make sure you’re staying in school and being responsible, because none of this would have been possible for me without getting my education first. That’s the most im Youth Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red FlexBase Authentic Jersey portant thing that led me to where I am today.”

Other notable members in attendance were LAUSD’s Board President Monica Garcia and Local District Superintendent Roberto Martinez from Local District Central.

This was the second of seven events the Rams will be hosting with CBS-2/KCAL-9 to recognize exceptional students and teachers throughout the district. For more information about the Rams community events, please visit ther Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey




Easley ‘Couldn’t be Happier’ to be Ba Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey Red ck with L.A.

DL Dominique Easley details why he’s so glad to continue being a part of the Rams organization after re-signing a one-year contract to stay with the club.

Defensive lineman Dominique Easley didn’t want to go anywhere else, and now he officially will not.

Easley signed a one-year deal with the Rams on Monday morning, bringing him under contract for the 2018 season. After suffering a season-ending ACL tear in the beginning of 2017 training camp, Easley’s new deal also ensures the defensive lineman can continue his rehab process with the organization.

He said just after signing his new contract on Blue Jays Jersey Red  Monday that there were myriad factors for why he wanted to remain in Los Angeles.

“Really everything from the players, to the coaches, to the organization,” Easley told “We’ve come from a place where we’ve been low. And, obviously, I wasn’t able to experience the winning side on the field, but I was able to experience the winning side through the players and coaches. I’ve seen how everything was coming together so it’s like we’re building something special here.”

Easley said despite his season-ending injury, he was still active withi Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Kevin Pillar Majestic Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red Flex Base Authentic Jersey n the team culture around the building. In many ways, that allowed him to share in the success of the Rams’ NFC West title last season.

“I would go to meetings,” Easley said. “I would be here every day, would go to practice and it would b Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey e like I was playing. I just wasn’t on the field.”

The experience of not being able to participate due to injury wasn’t new for Easley, who has played in only 38 games since being drafted in 2014. Plus, he suffered another season-ending knee injury back in college. But that didn’t necessarily make this latest process any easier for him, particularly coming off a year where he played in all 16 games.

“Obviously it was hard,” Easley said. “It was hard not being on the field, Youth Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red FlexBase Authentic Jersey  not being with my teammates. But it was also a learning experience as far as life.”

That’s a significant part of Easley’s mindset — treating the injury as more of a lesson than anything else. And that’s part of why he feels like some may think of the rehab process as more grueling than it really is.

“Life always puts you in a position where you have to come from the bottom to get right back up to the top. That’s every part of life,” Easley said. “It’s the mindset. You’ve got to have a strong mind. If you don’t have a strong mind, anything in life can beat you up.”

Now that Easley is officially back with the Rams, he’s looking forward to competing in coordinator Wade Phillips’ defensive unit — a coach who Easley says “lets you go and he believes in you.” Plus, the Rams now have a pair of elite cornerbacks in Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, which raises the bar defensively for the 2018 season.

“We’ve found building blocks. I would say everyone is in the right seat on the bus,” Easley said. “You have a bus full of people — people have certain roles to do in life. If you have everybody in the right seat, everything works in one, everything continuously works and continuously wins.”

And especially after sitting out the 2017 season, Easley is ready to get back in his metaphorical seat and get that bus rolling to its ultimate destination.

Rams, John Sullivan Agre Custom Rays Jersey e to Terms on Two-Year Deal

L.A. will have its center back in 2018, as John Sullivan has agreed to terms on a two-year contract.

The Rams will have  Personalized Tampa Bay Rays Jersey their starting center back in 2018, as the club has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with John Sullivan.

At the NFL Combine, head coach Sean McVay termed Sullivan a player the team was not looking to replace. And just on Wednesday, general manager Les Snead said the Rams were in communication with Sullivan’s representation.

And now, despite reports that other teams in the NFC had interest in him, Sullivan will remain a Ram.

Los Angeles signed Sullivan to a one-year contract as an unrestricted free agent in April of last year, and he made a clear impact to help stabilize the Rams’ offensive line. The center had familiarity with head coach Sean Custom Tampa Bay Rays Jersey  McVay’s offensive scheme, as the two spent the 2016 season together i Men’s Authentic Personalized Tampa Bay Rayss Home White MLB Jersey Sale n Washington.

Sullivan started the first 15 games of the regular season and Los Angeles’ playoff game against Atlanta. Throughout the year, quart Custom Rays Jersey erback Jared Goff praised Sullivan for his ability to read defenses and make calls at the line of scrimmage.

Bringing Sullivan back means Los Angeles will have en Men’s Authentic Custom Tampa Bay Rays Alternate Navy Blue Baseball Jersey ter the offseason program with continuity at all five spots on the offensive line. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth, left guard Rodger Saffold, Sullivan, right guard Jamon Brown, and right tackle Rob Havenstein are all under contract for 2018.

Around the NF Custom Rays Jersey C West: Free Agency Roundup

The first week of the NFL’s free agency is winding down, and already plenty of big roster moves have been made around the NFC West.

The first week of the NFL’s free agency period is winding down and already a lot of big moves have  been made.

On Wednesday, the Rams made several transactions to kick off the new year, but there were also plenty of other interesting trades and acquisitions happening around the NFC West.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the biggest storylines from around the division:

Seattle Seahawks:

During the first week of free agency, the top headlines from Seattle were more focused on players who will not be suiting up in navy and green in 2018, rather than the players who a Men’s Authentic Custom Tampa Bay Rays Alternate Navy Blue Baseball Jersey re joining the franchise.

The Seahawks began the league year with two of the most surprising moves in the NFC —

trading three time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Michael Bennett to the Eagles, while releasing four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman.

But these aren’t the only two familiar faces who won’t be with the club next year, as wide receiver Paul Richardson (Redskins), tight end Jimmy Graham (Packers), cornerback DeShawn Snead (Lions), and cornerback Jeremy Lane are all moving on.

Other notable moves coming from Seahawks’ camp this week included the re-signing of safety Bradley McDougald, along with the addition of tight end Ed Dickson and linebacker Barkevious Mingo.  

San Francisco 49ers:

When Sherman was released by the Seahawks earlier this month, there was plenty of speculation as to where he would end up.

It turns out we didn’t need to look very far, as the 49ers jumped at the opportunity to sign the star cornerback. Just one day after being released, Sherman signed a three-year deal with San Francisco where he will face off against his former team twice a year.

General manager John Lynch also made moves to bolster the team’s ground game, agreeing to a four-year deal with running back Jerick McKinnon and a five-year deal with center Weston Richburg. By bringing Richburg onto its roster, San Francisco was free to trade its former starting center Daniel Kilgore to the Dolphins.

Plus, the club extended quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and wid Custom Tampa Bay Rays Jersey e receiver Marqise Goodwin in February — providing continuity for the 49ers’ offense for years to come.  

Arizona Cardinals:

The Cardinals made waves last season by trading for seven time Pro Bowler and former NFL MVP, Adrian Peterson. But after a relatively unproductive and injury-plagued season, the Cardinals were ready to move on from the 10-year veteran and released him.

Arizona also let go of safety Tyrann Mathieu after both sides could not find common ground on a new Personalized Tampa Bay Rays Jersey  contract. After playing for the franchise for four seasons, the Cardinals were reportedly asking Matthieu to take a pay cut.  

However, the club was willing to spend money on its new quarterback Sam Bradford, who is set to replace Carson Palmer behind center. Bradford signed a one-year deal worth up to $20 million with Arizona, to become the first starting quarterback under new head coach Steve Wilks.

Joyner Hopeful Custom Orioles Jersey  for Long-Term Deal with Rams

Lamarcus Joyner is excited to be back on field with the Rams for at least one more season — even if means playing under the franchise tag.

Safety Lamarcus Joyner is excited to be back on field with the Rams for at least one more season — even if means playin Men’s Customized Authentic Baltimore Orioles Home White MLB Baseball Jersey g under the franchise tag.

Los Angeles elected to place the non-exclusive tag on Joyner e Customized Orioles Jersey Cheap arlier this month. And Personalized Baltimore Orioles Jersey  while other teams are still free to negotiate with the safety, the original club has the right to match any offer, or receive two first-round picks as compensation should he sign with another club.

But according to Joyner, it’s an honor to be given another opportunity with the franchise that drafted him back in 2014. 

“It’s a good feeling, it’s a really good feeling,” he said Wednesday. “When I was franchised, I just thought ‘OK, now I have another opportunity to try and win a Super Bowl with th Men’s Authentic Custom Baltimore Orioles Alternate Baseball Jersey Orange is organization [and] to continue to see where they see me as far as their future plans.’”

Last season, Joyner made the transition from a slot cornerback to a full-time free safety in coordinator Wade Phillips’ 3-4 scheme — a role in which he flourished. Through 12 games, Joyner recorded 49 tackles, nine pass deflections, and three interceptions.

His productivity was one of the reasons the Rams decided to bring him back for the 2018 season.

“Lamarcus is just a really good football player, so you want him to be on your football team,” general manager Les Snead said. “We moved him back to a position he played in college and he thrived. On and off the field, just a great human being, a great football player, someone you really want on your team.”

And though the franchise tag is not an ideal scenario for Joyner — who is still hopeful that he will be able to come to a long-term deal with the Rams before the July 16 deadline — the safety is determined to make the most of this season.

“The goal is to get a long term deal done and we’re still in the process of that. But I’m fine with it,” he said. “I have a lot more good years left that, so this deal won’t hurt anything as far as my career and my future.”

“We’re trying to do what’s best for myself, my family, and what’s best for the Rams and the organization as a whole,” Joyner continued. “So, we have until that time frame to get it done and if we don’t, we can continue throughout that process until it’s written in stone.”

Los Rams se frotan las manos con un per Custom Orioles Jersey ímetro de lujo para su defensa

Presentaron a los esquineros Aqib Talib y Marcus Peters, dos de los mejores de toda la NFL en su posición

Las palabras del gerente general de los Rams, Les Snead, fueron directas y profundas: “En 2017 tuvimos récord de 11-5 y ganamos la División Oeste. Cumplimos, pero definitivamente no estamos satisfechos y vamos a seguir trab Customized Orioles Jersey Cheap ajando para mejorar en eso”.

Lo anterior se traduce en que el equipo de Los Ángeles, que la temporada pasada sorprendió al convertirse en un divertido protagonista de la NFL, no se conforma con sus logros recientes y piensa en grande en los años por venir.

Pero para pensar en grande se necesita de grandes jugadores, así que los Rams presentaron, en el día de inicio de la agencia libre 2018, a dos defensivos que fácilmente pueden ser considerados entre los mejores de su posición: los esquineros Aqib Talib y Marcus Peters, que fueron adquiridos de Denver y Kansas City, respectivamente.

“Este es un gran dia para nuestra organización porque cada vez que puedes adquirir a jugadores de este calibre… siempre los vamos a tomar”, dijo el entrenador en jefe Sean McVay. “Estos hombres son jugadores especiales que traen su gran pasión por el juego a nuestro equipo”.

Talib, de 32 años de edad, ha sido considerado durante una década uno de los esquinas más completos de toda la liga jugando para Tampa Bay, Nueva Inglaterra y Denver, equipos donde jugó bajo el coordinador defensivo Wade Phillips.  Men’s Customized Authentic Baltimore Orioles Home White MLB Baseball Jersey Poder jugar de nuevo para el legendario genio de la defensa es una de las grandes razones por las que el cinco veces seleccionado al Tazón de Pprofesionales o Pro Bowl vestirá ahora el jersey de los Rams.

“Estoy en la parte final de mi carrera, sólo quiero estar cómodo”, dijo Talib, quien en su carrera suma 34 pases interceptados y 10 touchdowns. “No hay un lugar para estar más cómodo que con Wade Phillips. Él pone a los jugadores en posición de tener éxito. Si me iba a ir a algún otro lado, quería estar cómodo y definitivamente lo estoy en L.A.”.

Quiere divertirse en L.A.

Mientras Talib llega con toda su experiencia, que incluye un anillo de Super Bowl, para hacerse cargo de una de las dos esquinas, Peters, de 25 años, apenas está en sus primeras campañas y ya se le considera una joven estrella luego de jugar para los Chiefs entre 2015 y 2017 con un total de 19 pases interceptados y dos viajes al Pro Bowl.

“Vi lo mucho que se divirtieron los jugadores de los Rams (la temporada pasada). Se veía como una atmósfera de un verdadero equipo”, elogió Peters sobre su nuevo equipo y su nuevo entrenador McVay. “Amo este juego, asi que pongo atención en todo lo que pasa, y ver su transición con los jugadores siendo un entrenador joven, fue excelente ver eso”.

Para poder hacerse de Talib y Peters, dos hombres muy capaces cada quien de borrar al mejor receptor del equipo contrario por su habilidad para las coberturas, los Rams hicieron uso de sus selecciones colegiales.

Por Talib, los Rams cedieron una de 5ª ronda del próximo Draft a los Broncos, y por Peters enviaron una de 4ª ronda de 2018 y una de 2ª de 2019 a los Chiefs, quienes también dieron a los Rams una selección de 6ª ronda de este año.

“Es raro poder obtener a dos jugadores de este calibre, asi que cuando se presenta la oportunidad quieres ser agresivo para conseguirlo y felizmente las cosas se dieron rápidamente”, comentó McVay, quien se frota las manos con la posibilidad de tener una defensa que provoque más balones perdidos por la oposición. “Si podemos Men’s Authentic Custom Baltimore Orioles Alternate Baseball Jersey Orange  adquirir a jugadores que pueden cubrir y crear esos balones perdidos, sabemos que vamos a mejorar a la defensa y creemos que eso es exactamente lo que tenemos con estos dos hombres”.

¿El mejor grupo de profundos?

Los Rams tuvieron la ofensiva más anotadora de la NFL en 2017, pero defensivamente acabaron en el lugar 12 de la NFL en puntos recibidos y en el 19 en yardas permitidas. El objetivo es levantar más esa defensa, que ahora necesita encontrar los reemplazos de los linebackers Alec Ogletree y Robert Quinn, cambiados a NY Giants y Miami, respectivamente.

Mientras se les echará de menos a esos dos confiables guerreros defensivos, los Rams creen que la profundidad que tienen en la defensa secundaria les permitirá consolidar de mejor forma el esquema defensivo 3-4 que impuso el coach Phillips al llegar al equipo en 2017.

El perímetro carnero tiene en este momento a tres jugadores que han estado en el Pro Bowl (Talib, Peters y Sam Shields), a un safety que es garantía como Lamarcus Joyner, al que los Rams nombraron su jugador franquicia, al joven safety John Johnson, que tuvo impacto como novato la temporada anterior, y al valioso y versátil esquinero Nickell-Robey Coleman, a quien firmaron por tres campañas tras un excelente año 2017.

Ofensivamente, los Rams cuentan con talento de sobra, pero McVay sabe que necesita encontrar en su roster a alguien que levante la mano y tape el hueco dejado por la salida del receptor Sammy Watkins, quien a pesar de que no logró llegar a su tope en 2017 (39 recepciones, 593 yardas), le dio al quarterback Jared Goff un arma muy efectiva en la zona roja (8 touchdowns).

“Otros jugadores van a tener que levantar la mano”, dijo McVay. “Pero es un momento emocionante para nosotros por seguir buscando la manera de conseguir lo que hicimos el año pasado, y seguir mejorando a pesar de quedarnos sin un gran jugador como Sammy Watkins”.

La temporada 2018 ha empezado con “jugadas” de impacto en las oficinas de los Rams.
