Kenny Britt Agrees To Four-Year, $32.5M Deal With Browns

Mar 9, 2017 10:58 AM

Kenny Britt and the Cleveland Browns have agreed upon a four-year, $32.5 million deal.

The contract will have $17 million in guaranteed money.

Britt's eighth season in the NFL was his most productive, as he finished 2016 with career highs in receptions (68) and receiving yards (1,002), becoming the Los Angeles Rams' first player in nine years to reach the 1,000-yard milestone.

Britt suffered a torn ACL early in 2011 and caused the Titans headaches with multiple off-field incidents that drew police attention.

The value of the tag for the cornerback will be $16.7424 million in 2017.

Trumaine Johnson Signs One-Year, $16.7M Tender With Rams

Mar 6, 2017 8:06 PM

Trumaine Johnson has signed his one-year, $16.7 million franchise tender with the Los Angeles Rams.

Johnson and the Rams could still agree upon a long-term deal.

The $16.7 million Johnson is scheduled to make for 2017 would be the second-most of any cornerback in the NFL this year, behind only the $24 million Josh Norman will make in Washington this year between his salary and bonuses.

The Rams took Johnson out of Montana with a third-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Rams Want Todd Gurley To Improve Pass Blocking

Feb 15, 2017 6:35 AM

Todd Gurley struggled in 2016, watching his yards per carry drop from 4.8 as a rookie to 3.2 as a second-year player, but the Los Angeles Rams want him to improve elsewhere.

"It has nothing to do with the running game," running back coach Skip Peete said. "I think the most important thing in this league, as far as a running back is concerned, is his ability to pass protect, whether it's first or second down. Because they think it's easy. They've all come into the league comfortable as a runner. But that aspect of it is a little bit different than you're accustomed to coming out of college. He and I talk about that all the time -- your ability to completely understand the blocking scheme, whether it's run or pass."

The Rams believe Gurley's pass-protection is vital to the success of Jared Goff.

LaFleur had been quarterbacks coach but Steve Sarkisian will replace Kyle Shanahan as the Falcons' offensive coordinator.

Marshall Faulk Maintains The Patriots Filmed The Rams' Practice

Feb 3, 2017 8:25 AM

Marshall Faulk still believes that the New England Patriots filmed the St. Louis Rams' final practice before the Super Bowl in 2002 despite no evidence that anything illegal ever took place.

The rumor emerged around the time the Spygate story broke in 2007.

"[The practice] before the Super Bowl," Faulk said. "The guy who worked for the Patriots. If you remember, that was someone mysteriously living in Hawaii, who made his way back to the states and delivered the tapes. [Roger] Goodell then watched those tapes and said there wasn't enough there to deem anything being done. Now, I didn't see what was on the tapes, because we didn't get to see that. The only thing I could say is that they taped our practice. That was wrong."

Faulk was asked if he "believed" the Rams' practice was taped.

"I don't believe anything. I'm just telling you the facts," Faulk said.

Todd Gurley: 2016 Season 'Like A Nightmare'

Jan 24, 2017 6:11 PM

Todd Gurley had a yards-per-carry average of just 3.2 in his second NFL season with the Los Angeles Rams.

Gurley was asked to categorize his 2016 season.

"Like a nightmare. I still can't believe the season," Gurley said. "It was definitely a tough year, a learning experience for me. To be 4-12 this year? I don't want to feel that feeling again."

Gurley made news in December, describing the Rams' attack as a "middle school offense."
