The Los Angeles Rams went into this offseason with a ton of cap space at their disposal, allowing them to improve certain areas of the roster.

One area that the Rams addressed was the running back position, bringing in some depth behind Pro Bowler Kyren Williams in order to keep him fresh.

In addition to draft Blake Corum in the third round, the Rams also signed veteran running back Boston Scott to a one-year contract.

“It’s always love with Philly,” Scott told “I mean, I see that as my second home. Always thankful for (Eagles executive vice president and general manager) Howie (Roseman) and (Eagles owner) Mr. (Jeffrey) Lurie and the investment that they made me. I’ll be thankful for the rest of my life, you know, because I really I truly feel they changed my life. Being in a new spot, I haven’t had much issue adjusting to the weather (laughs). It’s been cool, I’m having fun man, I’m enjoying my time out here. A bunch of great guys on the team. Coaching staff is great. Everything around here, every person around here is committed to being the best they can be, and I love that.”

Scott didn’t sign with the Rams until later in the offseason, but they have actually been on his radar for a while:

“I can remember last year, I wasn’t getting any opportunities, so I kind of had some time to like sit back and really watch teams,” Scott said. “The Rams kind of stood out as far as the physicality. I just remembered them being very physical, they stayed in it the whole time, they did not lay down. So that type of mindset, that type of mentality, I think it’s just so important as you go throughout a long season.”

Knowing that the team has two young studs at the running back position in Williams and Corum, Scott is just looking to come in and contribute any way he can:

“I’m trying my best to show that I can do a lot of things,” Scott said. “I just want to contribute however I can when the ball’s in my hand and not in my hand. There are different ways that you can bring value to the team, so I’m just really trying my best to show that I can do anything that they place me in.”

Scott has typically succeeded as a goal-line type back and also has a history returning kicks, so he should be able to carve out a role for himself in L.A. even if he is not getting a ton of carries.

The Rams are clearly looking to get back to being a run-first team in 2024, and the addition of Scott gives them more depth to be able to do that.

Rams’ Sean McVay says Blake Corum reminds him of Kyren Williams

The Rams drafting a running back in the third round came as a surprise to many, but Sean McVay recently said that Blake Corum reminds him of Kyren Williams, so they obviously were very high on the Michigan star.
