Chris Lengthy would rebuild Rams by buying and selling Jalen Ramsey and Aaron Donald this offseason

After a 5-12 season, the Los Angeles Rams have quite a lot of work to do that offseason. They’ve by no means been a staff that tears issues down and rebuilds – not underneath Sean McVay, at the least – however that type of method could possibly be on the desk this yr.

Needing cap house and draft picks to spherical out a top-heavy roster, the Rams might discover making some blockbuster strikes that don’t contain them buying expertise. Reasonably, they’d be buying and selling it away.

Former Rams defensive finish Chris Long was on Peter Schrager’s podcast final week and he pitched the concept the Rams ought to commerce Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey in an try and reset.

“I do suppose the LA job will not be as far down as you suppose if – and that is what I might do – I might commerce Jalen Ramsey and Aaron Donald and I might begin over,” Lengthy stated. “I might take the yr with the bridge, see how near Caleb Williams I might get after which that job in a yr appears lots higher than it did every week or two in the past. I’m undecided how a lot capital you might recoup for 2 items like that, but it surely’s gotta get you near again on observe.”

Donald is nearing the tip of his profession, flirting with retirement final yr after the Rams received the Tremendous Bowl. His contract ought to commit him to Los Angeles for at the least yet one more yr – and he’s indicated that he’s enjoying in 2023 – however he might change his thoughts and determine to stroll away if he sees the Rams as a staff in rebuilding mode.

Lengthy doesn’t imagine Donald deserves to undergo that course of at this level in his profession,

“I don’t suppose a rebuild, as a result of at the least within the immediacy, it’s a reset. I don’t learn about a rebuild, however it’s a reset. Nevertheless you wish to separate these two phrases, I don’t suppose he deserves that at this stage in his profession,” he stated. “I might like to see him on the transfer. I might like to see him return to Pittsburgh. It must be some, ‘Hey, I’m going to win’ or some nostalgic cause. Pittsburgh could be enjoyable. I don’t know what Fletcher Cox’s deal is gonna be in Philly, however you possibly can by no means depend Howie Roseman out of creating a transfer for anyone.”

Lengthy isn’t reporting something and doesn’t have any inside information on the Rams’ plans, however he’s enthusiastic about what could possibly be a wild offseason with some big-name gamers on the transfer.

“It’s such a cool offseason due to stuff like this,” he added. “I’m not saying Jalen’s gonna get moved or Aaron’s gonna get moved. However all of that is on the desk. Aaron Rodgers, Lamar Jackson, Tom Brady.”
