Who is the best free target for the LA Rams?
By: Jake Rajala
The Los Angeles Rams didn’t take their foot off the pedal this off-season. Hence, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the sleep-deprived Sean McVay reeled in another splash signing. With that said, I’m going to untwine three dream FA targets for the LA Rams.
The Clowney sweepstakes are over, but there is one hungry pass rusher looking for a job: Justin Houston. The former Chiefs sack artist will surely look to play for a Super Bowl contender while being placed in a superb situation. Well, I believe Houston could nicely replace Von Miller and help Aaron Donald dismantle opposing NFC West pass protections on a frequent basis.
Odell Beckham Jr.
“Hello darkness, my old friend”
The Rams witnessed OBJ returning to impressive form in Super Bowl LVI, but he sadly left the game via a torn ACL. I would be shocked if Beckham Jr. joined the Saints WR room (that already features Michael Thomas, Chris Olave, and Jarvis Landry). I would love to see OBJ reunite with LA and it may even happen. Per Ian Rapoport, there’s still a possibility that OBJ re-signs with the Rams.
If the Rams can’t make a poetic reunion with OBJ, I’d love to see them shift their focus to the deep-threat T.Y. Hilton. Hilton, who is a few years younger (and less selfish) than Desean Jackson, can bring a unique element of deep-speed to the Rams WR room. I trust that Matthew Stafford can squeeze the remaining juice out of the former Colts speed demon.
