Rams are sixth-most valuable franchise in the NFL | Rams Wire
Everything about the Los Angeles Rams is on the rise right now. Not only is the team a legitimate Super Bowl contender, but the roster is littered with exciting players who are sure to draw fans to home games in 2018.
The stadium may not be anything special, but that’ll change in 2020 when the new venue in Inglewood opens and hosts its first Rams game. Needless to say, the team’s move to Los Angeles has paid big dividends financially, not only helping lure players in free agency, but also raising the value of the franchise.
Forbes released its latest list of the most valuable franchises in sports and not surprisingly, the Dallas Cowboys were once again on top at $4.8 billion. The Rams weren’t far behind at No. 6 on the list, coming in with a value of $3.0 billion.

TRANSCRIPT: LA Rams WR Brandin Cooks following contract extension - Turf Show Times
Here’s what the Rams’ newly re-signed wideout had to say to the media today.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks
(On if he instantly recognized that the Rams wanted to get a long contract done with him and was the feeling mutual)
“As far as recognizing it, to be honest, I just came in and wanted to learn the culture and buy into that and let everything else take care of itself. Once they brought it up that was how I got involved. At the end of the day it was about coming in, meeting the new coach, meeting the new guys and coming together as one. To show them that I’m here just to help win and be the best teammate that I can be.”

PFF ranks LA Rams fourth-best pass-rushing unit - Turf Show Times
Arguably the Rams’ strongest unit on the team gets a high rank from the guys over at Pro Football Focus.
When the Los Angeles Rams decided to pursue surprise-free agent DT Ndamukong Suh, they showed the NFL they were serious about upgrading their defense.
Not only is Suh a superb player and five-time pro bowler, but he was a luxury addition to a defensive line that was already very well equipped with all-star Aaron Donald, and underrated-star Michael Brockers.
The guys over at Pro Football Focus have ranked the Rams pass-rushing unit (OLB’s included) as the fourth-best unit in the league.
