Rams News: Los Angeles Signs John Sullivan To Two-Year Deal

After completing an impressive 2017 NFL season, the Los Angeles Rams headed into the offseason with numerous questions concerning their roster. The Rams had several key free agents who played an important role in the team’s turnaround and it was clear that some players would leave due to Los Angeles’ cap situation.

After the Rams chose to franchise tag Lamarcus Joyner, Sammy Watkins ended up signing a three-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. This represented one of the few difficult choices the team had to make, but general manager Les Snead has been diligent about adding talent as evidenced by the Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib trades.

According to the Rams, they also decided to bring back a pivotal piece of the offense by agreeing to terms with John Sullivan:

While losing a receiver of Watkins’ ability hurts, Los Angeles now keeps intact an offensive line that was responsible for ensuring Jared Goff had a clean pocket to work with. Although Sullivan is 32 years old, he is still a massive help to the rest of the O-line with his knack for recognizing and calling out defensive coverages.

With Sullivan locked up for at least two more years, the Rams will have some continuity on the offensive end come the 2018 NFL season. With free agency still going on, it will be interesting to see if Los Angeles decides to address their wide receiver need or simply promote a receiver like Josh Reynolds.
