Top Los Angeles Rams Week 1 storylines #Paytheman is over and done with — now what?DE Aaron Donald is feeling the pressure of his huge contract going into the season. But besides that [url=www.officialramslockerroom.com]Limited Marshall Faulk Jersey[/url] , the NFL world seems to be pretty excited that Donald is ready to destroy QB’s this season.We have our 53-Man Roster — who did we say goodbye to?It’s been not as dramatic as past years, but the Rams whittled down their players and we’re set for week 1. Glad to see Steven Mitchell on the practice squad. They even made some cuts after the deadline.The Los Angeles Rams are a trendy pick to go all the wayAnd besides a handful of NFL experts picking the Rams, there is also the comparison that the Chicago Bears are this year’s Rams. Every team is different, guys (and their uniforms match).However [url=www.officialramslockerroom.com]Eric Dickerson Jersey[/url] , not everyone is picking the Rams to win it all...Jared Goff’s offense is ready to be unveiled — what do we know?Gary Klein of the LA Times was very busy that past couple of days. He wrote up a great piece about QB Jared Goff’s Week 1 return to his homeland (Northern California). I’m still a little conflicted that Goff is a San Francisco Giants fan, but I’m trying to deal. Pray for me.Fox Sports even has a solid peice on Jared Goff’s eagerness to get out on the field with his offense. The Oakland Raiders made some questionable moves this weekCurious as to what head coach Jon Gruden is thinking about the recent roster moves? Me too.The Raiders will probably have to score a lot to keep up with the Rams, according to NFL.com.Lock Angeles is ready to rockOK! Now you’re all caught up and ready to watch the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football.Don’t forget to overreact on Twitter if the offense looks rusty! To help shore up the pass rush, the Los Angeles Rams completed a trade for Jacksonville Jaguars EDGE Dante Fowler Jr.The Rams are clearly in win-now mode and aren’t sparing any expense making a move that they clearly didn’t need as the Rams are 8-0 and the defense remains one of the NFL’s best. Given the track record of General Manager Les Snead to spend draft capital for proven players [url=www.officialramslockerroom.com]Torry Holt Jersey Salute to Service[/url] , it came to no surprise that the Rams are taking a calculated gamble to shore up the pass rush.While at first, the draft capital may sound a bit rich for a player who is on the eve of entering free agency as an unrestricted free agent, keep in the mind that the Rams are currently on track to potentially add two third-round compensatory picks for CB Trumaine Johnson and WR Sammy Watkins.So the question becomes one of whether Fowler is around solely for 2018 which would grant the Rams an additional compensatory pick, the round of which would be conditional on multiple factors [url=www.officialramslockerroom.com]Authentic Jack Youngblood Jersey[/url] , or if the Rams opt to re-sign the former first-round pick to a long deal.The former might not be so costly given all considerations and may offer some upside if Fowler does upgrade things on the field. The latter would be more interested given that Fowler has been somewhat of a disappointment to this point in his career coupled with the fact the Rams traded EDGE Robert Quinn this offseason.One random irony? You could make the case that Fowler is coming in as a replacement for DE/OLB Dominique Easley who was placed on IR with a knee injury earlier this month. The irony lies in that the two both played at Florida together when Fowler took over for an injured Easley in 2013.Throw in grumbling that Fowler’s attitude and off-field demeanor had become a problem, and you can see why the Jags were eager to move on in a situation that echoes the surroundings of CB Marcus Peters with the Kansas City Chiefs when the Rams made that deal this offseason.Here are some other reactions from Rams fans, bloggers, players [url=www.officialramslockerroom.com]Limited Jared Goff Jersey[/url] , etc.:Welcome the newest Ram, Dante Fowler via twitter @dantefowler as he will help ramp up and already dangerous pass rush.
