Re: but at tag prices

July 16, 2018 12:12PM
IMO AD won't play under the tag, so that is not an option the Rams have. They either get him signed to an extension or this is his last season as a Ram. They can tag him next year but only as part of a plan to trade him (where they won't get what he is worth in trade value). They also then risk not being able to sign Cooks since they won't have a tag they can use on him unless/until they get AD signed/traded.

And if it gets out that the Rams were lowballing him in negotiations (not saying they are), that would have more negative consequences on the future of the team and FA then if they pay him what he's proven he's worth. Again IMO.

If they can't/won't sign him they are better off trading him this offseason where they can get better trade value in future picks. Then try to get Cooks deal done.

I think a lot of fans don't realize how much worse the Rams D would have been over the last few years if not for AD. And without AD the Rams will need more time (possibly a lot more time) to find replacements for the amount of disruption and pressure he generates on the opposing offense. You can probably say goodbye to legit SB chances for a few seasons. And if/when they do find replacements, of course, those players will want to get paid too.

If they don't get AD signed Demoff should be fired. Else they should just attempt to draft good players, since they won't keep the elite players they draft.
