Rams set to tackle future
INDIANAPOLIS — By the time general manager Les Snead and coach Sean McVay arrived at the NFL scouting combine last year, the Los Angeles Rams already had pulled off a trade for star cornerback Marcus Peters.
A few days later — with the annual draft evaluation event in full swing — they traded linebacker Robert Quinn, and an offseason of frenzied moves kicked into high gear.
When the dealing was done, the Rams had added several stars to a team that advanced to the Super Bowl.
A year later, the NFL buzz Tuesday was not about a Rams transaction. It concerned the retention of one of their most valuable assets: Veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworth announced he would play a 14th NFL season.
