About 3 weeks ago the NFL free agency began. The Los Angeles Rams made a splash in last year’s free agency by trading for players like Marcus Peters and Brandin Cooks. This year there have been less trades and more signings. On the first day of free agency the Rams signed veteran safety Eric Weddle to a two-year deal worth $12.5 million. They also declined center John Sullivan’s player option which made him a free agent.  A few days later the Rams re-signed outside linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. to a one-year deal worth $14 million. After the first two days of free agency the Rams received the news that their safety Lamarcus Joyner signed with the Oakland Raiders and offensive guard Roger Saffold signed with the Tennessee Titans. The Rams also lost middle linebacker Mark Barron to the Pittsburgh Steelers. After the first 4 days of free agency the Rams did not make a move until the second week. On the first day of week two the Rams signed quarterback Blake Bortles to backup Jared Goff. Blake Bortles is an experienced quarterback who will look to train Jared Goff. The day after that the Rams signed linebacker Clay Matthews to a two-year deal worth $16 million. The Rams have been signing very good players this off season and look to continue.
