Some questions about pending ‘20 Ram UFA’s after watching the first 5 games...

October 09, 2019 10:53AM
Yeah, it’s waaaaay early, but still... just for funsies, anyway.

After seeing the first 5 games, almost a third of the season, here are my opinions as to extending some key ‘20 Ram UFA’s. Caution: I’m coming down on the ruthless side so some posters might be surprised or offended.

Whitworth. Goner.
Blythe. He’s 50-50, but probably allowed to walk unless he really shines in the next 11 games.

I think that’s it on the significant O UFA’s. Now let’s do the much longer D list. And let’s don’t forget that the D currently seems to be the side struggling the most.

Fowler. Goner, because he just hasn’t earned that big payday as yet.
Brockers. Probably a goner. Salary too high based upon so-so production on field.
Talib. Goner. Father Time has caught up with this formerly great CB and his salary would be too high, anyway. More bang for the buck with other FA CB’s or a high draft pick.
Peters. Goner, unless he really blows it up in these next 11 games. Too hit and miss, too immature. I think the Rams move on.
Littleton. Extend. A no-brainer.
Zuerlein. Extend. Another no-brainer.
Troy Hill. Very iffy, better be willing to sign inexpensively.
Hager. Another iffy, better shine plus be willing to sign inexpensively.
Bortles. Goner because he’ll get a nice offer to perhaps be a starter elsewhere.
Fox. Can’t decide just yet. Need a larger sample. Better be willing to sign inexpensively, too.
Christian. Probably a goner. Seems very replaceable.

So I guess I only see 2 likely extensions out of the 11 significant upcoming UFA’s on D.

How do you guys see it?
