Now that Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers have passed Monday’s deadline without
a contract in place Brian
Allen Color Rush Jersey , Bell appears headed for unrestricted free
agency in March. And he’ll hope to follow in the footsteps of someone he knows
well: Kirk Cousins.
Bell and Cousins were teammates at Michigan State, and now Bell is slated to
do the same thing Cousins did: Play out his rookie contract, then play two years
on the franchise tag, then cash in as a true unrestricted free agent.
The value of the running back and quarterback positions means that Ha Ha
Clinton-Dix Jersey , obviously, Bell won’t get anything close to
the contract Cousins got from the Vikings this year. But Bell will hope that
having the ability to shop himself to all 32 teams will put him in a position
where he’s able to command more guaranteed money than any running back has
Bell will need to stay healthy in 2018 and not show any signs that he could
be losing a step. If he does that, he could re-set the running back
Barring a trade Friday, the Rams' first pick will not come until the 23rd
selection in the third round Authentic
John Tavares Jersey , the 87th overall pick. The Rams traded their
first-round pick, the 23rd overall selection, to New England for wide receiver
Brandin Cooks earlier this month. The Rams included their second-round pick as
part of a trade with Buffalo for wide receiver Sammy Watkins in August.
Reduced to spectators during the first round Thursday, general manager Les
Snead and head coach Sean McVay showed clips of Cooks in action when the
Patriots were on the clock. Cooks had at least 1 Jalen
Reeves-Maybin Jersey ,000 yards receiving and seven touchdown
catches in each of the past three seasons.
"It looked good," Snead said. "You know what, there were some oohs and aahs
because we probably sorted it descending by longest plays. Obviously, a lot of
highlights in the first few minutes of that tape."
The Rams have three fourth-round picks to use if they want to move up to
address their most glaring needs at linebacker. Starting outside linebacker
Robert Quinn was traded to Miami in March Youth
Denzel Ward Jersey , and free agent Connor Barwin remains unsigned.
Quinn and Barwin combined for 13.5 sacks last season. Starting inside linebacker
Alec Ogletree was traded to the Giants in March after leading the Rams with 95
tackles last season.
Safety and offensive line are also areas the Rams will look to upgrade over
the next two days. The Rams started the same five offensive linemen for 15 of 16
regular-season games and their wild-card round loss to Atlanta, but left tackle
Andrew Whitworth is 36 and center John Sullivan is 32.
