New claim LA Rams RB Gurley and WR Cooks in Buccaneers’ sights?

The LA Rams need cap space. And the LA Rams need draft picks. The Rams are so desperate to free up available salary-cap space, that the team opted to not pick up the team-option year for CB Nickell Robey-Coleman.

To put this into proper perspective, he was a top-20 defensive back per Pro Football Focus’s ranking of 2019 defensive players. And the next season would cost the Rams $4.5 million. That’s petty change, and the Rams couldn’t spend it, even knowing the team would likely be able to initiate a trade at some future point in time to get some return, even a seventh-round draft pick.
