NFC West Rumors: Gurley, Rams, Seahawks

After an aggressive offseason, many are wondering how the Rams will afford to hold on to their best players, including running back Todd Gurley, in the long run. Apparently, Gurley doesn’t share that same concern.

Obviously, we know Aaron Donald is the guy to get paid,” Gurley told Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL Radio. “That’s the last thing we want to worry about is trying to get ours done when we need our best player to get paid. That’s not even really the focus right now,” Gurley said. “Once you win that Super Bowl, they don’t have a choice but to pay you whether it’s the Rams or any other team. Once we try to put that together and do that, everything will take care of itself. Just focus on what’s next.”

Gurley, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2015 draft, has one year remaining on his original rookie deal and is expected to be retained this offseason via the fifth year option. While he says that he’s not thinking about his next deal, it would behoove him and his reps to get a dialogue going with Los Angeles brass. Given the limited shelf life of running backs in the NFL and Gurley’s own injury history, it would make sense for him to gain financial security beyond 2019.

    Kaepernick is the Ronda Rousey of the nfl. He got exposed in a major way and doesn’t dare take the field again out of fear of getting utterly destroyed. He enjoys much more celebrity right now being the “poor oppressed hall of famer” than if he actually reminded everybody how much he was in waaaay over his head. Ronda rousey of the nfl, I’m tellin ya.

      Rousey with a full afro just doesn’t do anything for me. Why do I feel I’m going to have some nightmares through the night now?

      Except Rousey is a very accomplished athlete who’s won medals in the Olympics! Far from Kap who’s a back-up QB at best!
