1. Los Angeles Rams

Speaking of creating a good quarterback where there didn’t seem to be one after a dismal rookie season under Jeff Fisher, don’t forget the work Rams’ head coach Sean McVay has done with Jared Goff. Goff notably regressed across the board last year, but he did seem to get on a better track over the final five games (328.6 yards per game, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions).

The Rams have had Blake Bortles as Goff’s backup. Right now though, only former UDFA and AAF signal caller John Wolford is on the depth chart and the idea of Cam Newton (if he were open to signing as a backup) has recently surfaced. Re-signing Bortles seems like a possibility, but it hasn’t happened yet and if/when the Rams do sign a veteran quarterback it feels like they’ll go another direction (Joe Flacco?).

The Rams are stuck with Goff and his bloated contract for two more seasons before there’s any realistic way out. But good franchises always keep the quarterback position on their radar, if only to cultivate depth (and ideally do it cheaply). McVay could tear down and rebuild Trubisky on a level equal to anyone this side of Kyle Shanahan, and he could do it even better than his former colleague in Washington when it comes down to it.
