The oldest Los Angeles Ram has passed away at age 98...
@Alden_Gonzalez: "The message was clear: Snead needed an extraordinary offseason, to steer this franchise in the right direction and validate what had been built over the previous half-decade. Then Snead went ahead and had one."
"If he’s still on the roster on March 16 they owe him a $5 million roster bonus. They can save $3 million in cap space by cutting him now, but there’s a cash savings that’s considerable since he’s under contract through 2021."
@Alden_Gonzalez: "The pressure has turned up on the Rams to secure a long-term deal with Donald now that he is entering the final season of his rookie contract. Becoming the fifth defensive tackle to win AP Defensive Player of the Year since 1982 -- when the sack became an official stat -- should only increase Donald's price further... The Rams are clearly set up for long-term success, in a major market and, eventually, an unrivaled stadium -- and Donald knows it."
After what he did to Foles, Keenum, and Goff, not to mention the rest of the Rams... who would not support this?
"What it means is we had a good season that I think we can build on,'' McVay said. "But you have to earn it every single day. It's a very humbling league.''

“Southern California and Mexico share strong historic and cultural ties and this game will provide an opportunity to celebrate the special connection between these two regions,” said Rams owner Stan Kroenke in a statement.
Rams Head Coach Sean McVay: “I’m excited for Matt LaFleur and his family as he transitions to the Titans as offensive coordinator. We’re grateful for his contribution to the Rams and our NFC West Championship season last year. As we move to 2018, we are confident in the leadership and guidance of Aaron Kromer and Shane Waldron as they begin their roles as run coordinator and pass coordinator.”
@LindseyThiry: "USC operates the venue, which is home to the Trojans football team and, temporarily, the NFL's Los Angeles Rams. The Rams will play at the Coliseum the next two seasons before their new home in Inglewood opens its doors for the 2020 schedule."
