Butting Heads Ep. 33: Free Agent Targets for the L.A. Rams
Steve Rebeiro and Johnny Gomez prepare for free agency by diving into the available pool of players. The guys break down a number of different free agents and whether or not the Los Angeles Rams can realistically make a play at them. Those names include Brandon Marshall, Earl Thomas, Kwon Alexander, Clay Matthews and more. They also discuss the importance of Andrew Whitworth pushing back retirement for another year.
It all begins with Whitworth. Steve and Johnny address what Whitworth’s decision means for the current roster and the salary cap situation. They also look how his presence also matters for the offensive line. With Whitworth decision in mind, Steve and Johnny outline what they believe the Rams should do with their 2019 draft picks.
In the second segment, the guy dive into the various free agents available, including some realistic options (Marshall, Mitch Morse), some unrealistic scenarios (Jadeveon Clowney, Landon Collins), and some players that are realistic, but the Rams should stay away from (Matthews).
Finally, Steve and Johnny analyze the Rams’ backup quarterback situation. They answer the question of whether or not the Rams should spend valuable salary cap money to sign a veteran like Ryan Fitzpatrick, Robert Griffin III, or yes – Sam Bradford.
