Throughout the past couple of weeks, the Rams have inked massive deals with a few of their marquee players. First, Los Angeles handed All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who happened liked the tweet, to a five-year, $105 million extension. The historic deal made Ramsey the highest-paid defensive back in NFL history.
Then, not long after Ramsey’s deal was hot off of the press, the Rams gave Cooper Kupp a three-year, $48 million extension. After getting Kupp secured long-term, Los Angeles turned their attention to getting a deal done with fellow receiver Woods.
Due to his massive contributions to the team, Woods was signed to a $65 million extension over four years. The veteran wideout’s deal can reach a maximum value of $68 million and includes $32 million in guarantees.
As a result of the Rams’ expensive extensions, some fans have questioned how the team has been able to fit these deals under the salary cap. When the team signed Jared Goff to a four-year, $134 extension a year ago, many wondered how Los Angeles would sign anyone in the future.
Seeing that they continue to find the money for players, they’ve found a way, financially, to keep their key contributors. There are plenty of resources you can use to discover information pertaining to team’s salary cap situations. Just don’t ask the Rams’ Twitter account for them, though.
