The Los Angeles Rams aren’t essentially available in the market for a operating again after shedding Cam Akers to a torn Achilles, however there’s one participant who is likely to be desirous about serving to them out on the place. LeSean McCoy remains to be out there and would give the Rams some useful veteran management and expertise, and he’s already being recruited by a pal in L.A.
McCoy was on the Touchdown Wire NFL podcast with Doug Farrar and he stated DeSean Jackson known as him twice about doubtlessly enjoying for the Rams. McCoy didn’t shoot the thought down, saying he thinks it will be an awesome match.
“That might be an awesome alternative, L.A. I imply, who doesn’t need to be in L.A.? However the crew, I feel Sean McVay’s an awesome coach, mastermind. And I feel they made some nice strikes this offseason,” McCoy stated. “One in every of my greatest associates is DeSean Jackson. He introduced it up, he known as me yesterday and he known as me at present about doubtlessly coming on the market. He was joking about it, however I’m conscious, I’m alert with what’s occurring. I feel that’s an awesome crew, that may be an awesome match. They’ve an awesome likelihood to win a Tremendous Bowl. And the perfect participant within the NFL performs for them – by the best way, a Pittsburgh man.”
McCoy, after all, is speaking about Aaron Donald as the perfect participant within the NFL. They each went to Pittsburgh and although they’ve by no means performed collectively earlier than, Donald actually makes the Rams a extra attractive touchdown spot for any participant.
As for Matthew Stafford, McCoy’s draftmate from 2009, he thinks the previous Lions quarterback is underrated.
“I don’t assume he will get sufficient credit score as a result of he can play,” McCoy stated. “And I don’t need to disrespect any gamers he’s performed with with the Lions, however I don’t assume these groups have been tremendous nice, however he did some nice issues over there. Tremendous gifted, large arm, very clever, sensible man. I do know Stafford, we got here in collectively in the identical draft. … He can play. He actually can play.”
Don’t count on the Rams to signal McCoy proper now, but when Darrell Henderson Jr. and their different operating backs don’t step up in camp, a veteran like McCoy could possibly be introduced in.
