Sun Jun 23, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

The Los Angeles Rams official website reports Rams HC Sean McVay says CB Tre'Davious White (Achilles) is making good progress in his recovery. "He's making good progress. He was able to partake in the walkthrough. It's obviously a significant injury that he's overcome. He's gotten a lot of good stuff done on the side. You could see he's really locked in and engaged in the meeting setting. As far as what his actual process will be in training camp, we'll see where he's at. He does such a great job, understands his body, and so I don't think we want to pigeonhole ourselves into one approach. Alright, how's he feeling? What does it look like relative to when (Head Team Physician) Neal ElAttrache checks up on him and what's going to be the best thing for him, not only for hopefully being ready to go for the opener, but for the totality of the season," McVay said.

Since acknowledging a report earlier this offseason that Stafford wants more guaranteed money, McVay has chosen to keep contract discussion “in-house.”

NFL.com reports Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford was present for the opening day of OTAs on Monday.

-- Will Matthew Stafford Show for OTAs? --
Sat May 18, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports after the Los Angeles Rams didn’t use a first-round draft pick on a quarterback, QB Matthew Stafford’s camp made it known he wants a new contract. To date, he has yet to get one. His only leverage that doesn’t entail a potential fine consists of staying away from OTAs. For the Rams, they start Monday. So it’s fair to wonder whether Stafford will be there. Complicating matters for the Rams is the fact that the guy who got the hot-potato-to-Detroit treatment, QB Jared Goff, recently got a contract worth $53 million per year in new money — and that has a practical guarantee of $148 million at signing. Stafford specifically wants more guaranteed money beyond 2024, which would keep the Rams from cutting him after this season. (He currently has only $10 million in fully guaranteed compensation for 2025.) The fact that Goff will get more than $75 million in cash this year becomes another potential issue for Stafford, whose payout from the Rams in 2024 is $31 million.

-- Rams Don't Want to Run Down Kyren Williams --
Fri May 10, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports the Los Angeles Rams used a third-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft on Michigan RB Blake Corum to play in tandem with RB Kyren Williams. GM Les Snead recently said part of the rationale for the pick was ensuring the Rams didn't overload Williams. "A lot of people have said he's similar (to Williams)," Snead said of Corum. "They have a very similar play style. They both really, really care about football. That's very important on that side of the ball. That's a sophisticated side of the ball. We're a relatively advanced, veteran offense, so you definitely are going to need to bring a care factor to be able to get up to speed and be able to function and fit right in and keep the thing humming. It's a tough league; it's a 17-game season plus playoffs, might go to 18 games one day. So we always felt like we needed to have as many quality runners as possible so we don't just totally run down Kyren, and we have one or two, or even three guys that can contribute, keep everyone fresh, and let's go and try to impose our will."

-- Sean McVay Speaks on Matthew Stafford --
Sat Apr 27, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Los Angeles Rams HC Sean McVay did his best, as he often does, to tiptoe around the topic of QB Mattew Stafford's contract issues of no guarantees. Is the report that Stafford wants more guarantees accurate? “Yeah, I’ve had good dialogue with Matthew,” McVay said. “We’ll keep those things in house, but he’s been working with our guys and we’ll keep those things in house.” Will Stafford by present for OTAs, the key third phase of the offseason program? “He’s been working with our guys the last couple weeks,” McVay said. “And so that’s kind of where we’re at with that.”

-- Rams Like Pairing of Blake Corum with Kyren Williams --
Sat Apr 27, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports the Los Angeles Rams used a third-round draft pick on Michigan RB Blake Corum on Friday night, and HC Sean McVay thinks Corum is a perfect pairing with the Rams’ current starting running back. RB Kyren Williams, who led the Rams with 1,144 rushing yards last season, plays the game the same way Corum does, according to McVay. “One of the things that jumped off is there’s a lot of traits that reminded me of Kyren Williams,” McVay said. “Obviously I love Kyren and he’s been so important, and just the human being, but then also when you just look at the way he works at it, the production and the things that he was able to bring to our offense last year, and even really some of the things that he worked through his rookie year. I think there’s a lot of similarities.”

-- Matthew Stafford Wants Guarantees Beyond 2024 --
Fri Apr 26, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford’s $31 million base salary this season is guaranteed. Stafford has two more years on his contract, but no more guaranteed money. Stafford is seeking an adjustment to his contract that would provide him with more guaranteed money beyond 2024. Although Stafford is participating in voluntary workouts, the report says his contract request is “a lingering offseason issue for the Rams.” It’s unclear what the status is of Stafford’s contract negotiations, and also unclear how far he’s willing to take it, including whether he could threaten to hold out or even retire if the Rams don’t meet his demands.

-- Tre'Davious White Speaks --
Fri Apr 19, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Los Angeles Rams CB Tre'Davious White (Achilles) signed a one-year deal and said this week that the role his new team would play with his return to action was one of the things he considered before adding his name to the contract. “Very transparent, just very authentic, the plan that they have in place,” White said. “I’m a guy that’s very strategic [with] my approach of how I would want my rehab to go, being that I’ve had an ACL before and I know how rehab can go. So I was doing my homework. This team has rehab guys that have been very successful with the Achilles before.” White said he’s been listening to the Rams and his doctor and that “so far it’s been good.” He added that he’ll continue to be “very transparent” about how he’s feeling in order to ensure that the process has the best possible outcome this fall.

Thu Apr 4, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp was able to stay on the field once he returned to action last season. WR Puka Nacua says his teammate’s health has remained strong over the last few months. Nacua believes this has set Kupp up for a return to the level of performance that made him the offensive player of the year in 2021. “I’ve been training with Coop so it’s been good. He’s on a revenge tour. He’s been able to get a healthy offseason and stuff so he’s back at it,” Nacua said.

Tue Mar 26, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Los Angeles Rams veteran TE Tyler Higbee (knee) suffered a torn ACL and MCL during the team’s playoff loss to the Lions in January. Because of the timing, even in March HC Sean McVay was ready to say at the league meeting that Higbee will be placed on the physically unable to perform list this summer. “You just feel terrible with Tyler Higbee getting injured,” McVay said. “He’s meant so much to our team, but you know he’s gonna be a PUP guy for sure. Don’t know exactly when to expect them back, but being able to have somebody in addition to what Davis Allen did, I think that gives us the opportunity to maybe mix up some personnel groupings, and then hopefully having Hunter Long come back. And really, really fortunate to be able to have [tight ends coach/pass game coordinator] Nick Caley stay, because he had some opportunities to leave. I’m glad we kept that crazy guy around, he’s a hell of a coach.”

-- Puka Nacua Will Play Sunday Until... --
Thu Jan 4, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports the Los Angeles Rams will play WR Puka Nacua on Sunday. Until he breaks the single-season rookie receiving record, apparently. “I think you’d like to be able to see him get an opportunity to do something special and then be smart with him,” HC Sean McVay said when asked whether Nacua will be limited. He needs only 29 yards to break the single-season receiving yardage record for rookies. It’s a balance between the risk of exposing him to injury while also letting him eclipse a high-water mark set by WR Bill Groman of the Houston Oilers in 1960. Puka has 1,445 receiving yards. Groman had 1,473. That’s more than any of the great rookie receivers in league history have ever gained. If/when Nacua gets 29 yards, he’ll likely be removed from the game. At that point, he’ll have the record, and he will have potentially done enough to overcome Texans QB C.J. Stroud as the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year.

NBC Sports reports Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford was asked if he’s planning to keep playing until the wheels fall off. “I don’t think I’ll go until the wheels completely fall off,” Stafford said. “They’re wobbling a little bit right now as we speak.

I love this team, I love the city, it’s been a blast. Obviously had a lot of success in our first year and trying to duplicate that this year, next year, whenever it is.

Given the location of the incident, and in light of the fact that surveillance cameras seem to be pretty much everywhere these days, it’s possible if not likely that there is video of the moment Robinson was robbed.

-- Derion Kendrick Arrested --
Tue Oct 17, 2023 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Los Angeles Rams CB Derion Kendrick, who has started all six games this season, recently was arrested on a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon. Rams HC Sean McVay was asked by reporters on Monday how he will handle the first arrest of any Rams player during his stint as a head coach. “I think the first thing is, in all sincerity, you want to gather the appropriate information before you speak on things without knowing the totality of it all,” McVay said. “And there’s still information we’re gathering. There are still some things that don’t have full clarity and I think once you have that, then you can use these as opportunities to try to be able to educate and see exactly what happens. But I don’t want to be quick to pass judgment before I know everything. I care about these guys a whole lot. I want to continue to help them make all the right decisions and try to avoid situations like this, but I also know that life isn’t perfect. I’ve certainly made my mistakes and how can we continuously educate guys on how to avoid these, and then also understand all the layers that are involved in a situation like this before I dive deep into having an opinion and passing judgment.”
