I see Sam to the Rams possibly in the near future...


Recommended Posts

Last year when the Panthers gave away a very high 2nd round pick for Sam (that still hurts), Rhule said that Sam reminded him of Matthew Stafford.  LOL.  It would be interesting if he ended up being a backup to Stafford.

It would be our pick that would be given. Probably a 2nd or 3rd for someone to take that contract.

We don't need someone to take the contract. We can afford to eat it, if it meant getting a decent draft pick in return.

I'll be shocked if we get anything for Sam but I'd love to be wrong about that.

Same.

I have to agree with the others that are saying it would be good for Darnold's career, though.

My question would be whether or not Rhule wants to trade him.

My lingering suspicion since the Baker trade was the "QB competition" was purely to inflate Sam's value. That the splitting reps, and rotating him in with the ones, and the general act that Sam could potentially be a starting QB was to advertise him. So when a starter inevitably goes down with an injury before the season starts, it's 1-800-CALL-FITT.

I also don't expect we'd get much, but if we could get a 6th, and get a portion of his salary off-loaded, it's a huge win for the Panthers.

Frankly, we should all be praying from Sam to ball out during training camp and the preseason.

It's really not a farfetched idea. If they'd give the Panthers a 4th or 5th, take a chunk of the salary off the books, it's a win win for both teams. Same kinda deal the Panthers did for Baker. Darnold might really have success on the Rams sitting behind Stafford and learning from McVay for a few seasons.

That actually could possibly work better than normal maybe perhaps????

If Darnold has any chance whatsoever of turning the corner and becoming a decent to good quarterback, it's probably going to have to be with somebody like McVay or Andy Reid.

Nobody we've got is on the level of those guys.

It just seems dumb. It's not like there isn't a poo ton of film of Darnold sucking at QB in the NFL out there. He's not some unknown variable.

Rams don't have a lot of cap space, but could eat 5m of the 20m owed Sam.

They are in win now mode.  Every game could be the difference in a wild card spot vs. home field.  Gotta believe Darnold is far more likely to come off the bench and win a game or two than some dude named Woolford.

Rams also have a lot of late round picks and a number of likely comp picks.  Take a 6th and $5m for Sam and call it a day.
