Rams’ strong response to trade inquiries for Gerald Everett

Gerald Everett, Rams

It looks like Los Angeles Rams tight end Gerald Everett isn’t going anywhere.

According to Jordan Rodrigue of The Athletic, the Rams have received calls from multiple teams asking if the fourth-year pro is available for a trade. However, the team’s response to all of them a resounding no.

This is a strong message when it comes to how the Rams think of Gerald Everett, as they make sure they keep him in the fold with his rookie contract expiring. He is going to be making $1.29 million in his final year before becoming an unrestricted free agent.

While it is certainly something that will be the talk for the Rams and Everett this season, the tight end is not letting it be a distraction. He noted that he is focusing on what he can control this campaign instead of his contract.

“The NFL season is always going to be up and down,” Everett said, per Sports Illustrated. “You just have to remain even and just stay the course, and just continue to identify weaknesses in yourself and work on those weaknesses. Just keep coming to work with the same positive mentality. I want to get better and just be a complete pro — that’s what we do here every day and that’s what I do. I don’t see that changing in the near future.”

“I don’t really worry about contract talks. We started off as kids playing this game for free and as we’ve been blessed to keep playing over college and professionally now. Everything’s inevitable and everything will happen when it’s time.”

With the way the Rams are handling other potential suitors, it definitely looks like they want to keep Everett and will do everything they can to do so.

Last season, Everett had 37 receptions for 408 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
