The Los Angeles Rams continue to bolster their offensive line this offseason as they build off an outstanding 2023 season that saw them win 10 games and return to the playoffs.

Last week, the Rams re-signed offensive guard Kevin Dotson to a massive three-year deal worth $48 million. Dotson played outstanding football last season for the Rams, producing an 85.2 overall grade, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Rams know they need to win in the trenches and at the point of attack to compete in a physical NFC West. Therefore, Los Angeles signed free agent guard Jonah Jackson to a three-year, $51 million deal with $34 million guaranteed, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Jackson thrives as a run blocker, which is excellent news for the Rams as they have a good running back in Kyren Williams. However, the former Detroit Lions guard must work on his pass protection. 

According to Pro Football Focus, the 27-year-old offensive lineman has a pass-block grade of 56.6 and a true pass set pass-block grade of 49.2. Los Angeles will want to see some notable improvement from Jackson in that area. But the Rams are in a great position to be even better next season.
