2019 NFL GM Offseason Report Cards


Los Angeles Rams: Les Snead

The Los Angeles Rams had a great 2018 season—right up until the end.

That Super Bowl disappointment was followed by some tough decisions after the Rams went all in for 2018. Guard Rodger Saffold, the longest-tenured player on the team, wasn't retained. Neither was defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Or safety Lamarcus Joyner. And the iffy status of tailback Todd Gurley's balky knee cast a shadow across the offseason.

However, once again, the Rams were relatively aggressive in adding big-name free agents. They brought in Eric Weddle as a replacement for Joyner and signed six-time Pro Bowler Clay Matthews to add pop at linebacker.

L.A. flipped its first-round selection to Atlanta for a pair of Day 2 picks—and then put those assets to good use with a bit more maneuvering. Taylor Rapp has the makings of the long-term answer at free safety. Tailback Darrell Henderson offers some much-needed Gurley insurance. Bobby Evans could challenge for snaps at the guard spot vacated by Saffold.

The Rams may not have had the home run offseason of a year ago, but it was a solid double off the wall.
