Rams: All in, every year all the time.

Can only imagine the damage Miller and Donald will do together...

Serious question, as I haven’t seen him play this year: how good is he still? I see he has 4.5 sacks, but that’s obviously not a great barometer of his down to down play.

Yates runs through the Rams current draft capital for 2022. They have a comp 3rd rounder, their own 5th/7th, and Miami’s 7.

It really is Super Bowl or bust for the Rams at this point. They have a similar structure to the Chiefs in that the roster is incredibly top heavy (top 10 guys are $168mn against the 2022 cap, or just over 80% of the projected total) but they have next to no draft capital (Lions own the Rams 2023 first rounder too). Miller is a UFA at the end of the year too. Heavy price to pay for a half season rental.

Tweet from Field Yates:
"Current Rams’ 2022 draft picks: Round 1: Traded to Lions Round 2: Traded to Broncos Round 3: Traded to Broncos, still own a compensatory pick (via Brad Holmes hire) Round 4: Traded to Texans Round 5: Own Round 6: Traded to Patriots Round 7: Own & Dolphins’ pick"

I saw him against Jets and Giants (I know…) and he looked to still have it physically. Definitely not his peak version but I bet LA gets good production. Makes a lot of sense for a team that is built to win now and has to go through some combination of Brady, Dak, Rodgers, and Kyler.

Sean McVay eating oreos while making bad decisions in the NFC Championship Game is a good visual.

Tampa Bay keeps hang-Ging around and hang-Ging around.

if it ends up being LA v Tampa in the playoffs, Brady is going to set a record for the quickest release time ever. He will be something ridiculous like 1.7 seconds.

Either that or he'll get killed, pressure up the middle/from the edge meeting at the QB.

Not a good ending.

i love this deal from denver point of view this means denver will have 5 top 100 picks in the draft miller has been getting hurt more often unless the rams win the super bowl in 2021 they lose in this deal
