The free-agent market got a little bit deeper on Friday as several notable players were released, giving the Los Angeles Rams more potential targets.
The Los Angeles Rams do not have much wiggle room this offseason, making any additions that the team does make all the more important. With limited cap space and no first-round draft pick, Les Snead’s front office must be savvy in maneuvering through the offseason.
Luckily for the Rams, several new targets were made available on Friday as multiple teams cut notable key players, in large part due to salary cap reasons. Most of these players are not hugely impactful, but they typically can be brought in on a bargain.
Here are the five most intriuging new free agents that the Los Angeles Rams could be interested in, ranked in order.
5. Thomas Davis Sr, cut by Los Angeles Chargers
Thomas Davis Sr. had one more year of a two-year deal left on his contract and while he did not have a terrible year in 2019, the Chargers opted to free up cap space and cut the veteran linebacker.
Now that Davis is without a team there is a possibility that he could retire, however, it would not be surprising to see the veteran give it one last go with a contending team. He had already committed to playing in 2020 with the Chargers, so it would not make sense for him to turn down an opportunity with a contender, especially if it is in the same city.
While Davis does still have something left to offer as a veteran linebacker and would give the team linebacker depth, there certainly are better new options available.
His best fit on the Los Angeles Rams would be at right inside linebacker next to Cory Littleton, but that position is not a massive need and could be one that the team would rather solve in the draft with youth.
However, a one-year stop-gap option to give the Rams time to continue to bolster the position is not too bad, either.
