The Los Angeles Rams have been one of the NFL’s premier teams in recent years, and much of it has to do with the electric offense head coach Sean McVay managed to install.
While McVay’s known for his passing game concepts, the Rams’ offense revolves around their running game and no running back was better than Todd Gurley. Gurley set the NFL ablaze under McVay was a legitimate MVP candidate before the two sides parted ways.
Gurley was actually in attendance to watch Los Angeles win Super Bowl LVI and he was happy for the franchise and his former teammates, via Mike Gavin of NBC Sports:
“Happy for guys like AD that really work hard,” Gurley said. “Guys like Jalen Ramsey that put in work. Obviously gotta go with all my running back guys, seeing guys like Cam Akers come back from an Achilles in four months. Sony Michel getting traded from the Patriots, not only did he beat the Rams in the Super Bowl a couple of years ago, he’s also won one with them, as well. Guys like Gerald Henderson. So, you always get excited for the guys. It’s never just about you. Yeah, everyone would love a ring. But at the end of the day, it’s about being able to congratulate and then see other guys succeed and being happy for them.”
Although Gurley is only 27 years old, he has come to terms with where he is at in his football career:
“There was never not one time where I watched a game and was like, ‘I wish I was out there,’” Gurley told Keith Kocinski of NBC LX on Saturday before his first game as team owner in Fan Controlled Football. “I appreciated my time in the league and I’ve done things I could have never even dreamed about.”
While Gurley did not rule out a return to the NFL, it seems he is happy with where he is at. Rams fans will always appreciate Gurley’s tenure in Los Angeles and it will be exciting to see what he does next.
