Rams re-sign tackles

The Los Angeles Rams have re-signed two of their backup offensive tackles in OT Darrell Williams and OT Cornelius Lucas. OT Darrell Williams Source: Darrell Williams signed a one year with #Rams.— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) April 16, 2018 Williams was the primary backup at tackle last season behind LT Andrew Whitworth. A UDFA from the 2015 NFL Draft, Williams struggled with injuries in his first two years dislocating his wrist in November of his rookie season and landing on IR as the season began in 2016. That he fought back from those injuries to make the 53-man roster at least...

Rams release Kayvon Webster

Given the recent moves the Rams have made, this was seen as a logical choice. The Los Angeles Rams made an expected move today by cutting CB Kayvon Webster. Rams released veteran CB Kayvon Webster, per source.Added some CBs, and now subtract one.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 6, 2018 For Webster and the Rams, it all comes down to unfortunate timing. Webster was playing relatively well when he ruptured his Achilles tendon against the Philadelphia Eagles. That’s not a small injury for a CB, and usually has a 6-8 month recovery window. Partially due to that injury, the Rams...

Pats Pulpit

Chris Hogan is a huge winner from the Brandin Cooks trade

The Patriots wide receiver will have plenty of opportunities in 2018. The New England Patriots are thrilled to receive a first round pick from the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for wide receiver Brandin Cooks- and fellow receiver Chris Hogan must be thrilled as well. Hogan had a fantastic start to the 2017 regular season, prior to suffering a shoulder injury in week 8 that effectively sidelined him for the rest of the year. Over those first eight games, Hogan collected 455 yards and 5 touchdowns, which set him on pace for a 910-yard and 10-touchdown season. What’s important and impressive...

Pead aiming for gold medal

Inspiring stuff from the former Ram running back. Pretty cool story from TMZ Sports who spoke to former St. Louis Rams RB Isaiah Pead. The 50th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Pead was the first of five running backs drafted by the Rams in four years. On the field, his career never really got going rushing the ball just 19 times for 78 yards with an ill-fated ACL injury that wiped out his 2014 season. He signed with the Miami Dolphins in March of 2016 but was released in October. A month later though, tragedy struck as Pead was in a car accident that ultimately required doctors to...

Good morning, Gang Green Gangsters! Here are your daily New York Jets links for this Wednesday... Eric Allen: HC Todd Bowles expects WR Quincy Enunwa to have a full recovery.

The Falcoholic

Are the Falcons and Rams due for injury regression in 2018?

No, we shriek. No! Two of the six playoff teams in the NFC were defined by their injury luck, or skill in avoiding injury, whichever you prefer to call it. The Falcons have been relatively healthy for the last two seasons, though they did lose Desmond Trufant, Derrick Shelby, and a handful of key other players in 2016. Aside from the the unfortunate loss of Jack Crawford early in the year and Andy Levitre late, though, they truly were remarkably healthy in 2017. So were the Rams, who became one of the best young teams in the NFC last season. What did those two teams have in common? Very few...
