The Los Angeles Rams were in desperate need of an improvement at the quarterback position, and Matthew Stafford was craving a better supporting cast.
The trade that sent Stafford to Southern California was a match made in heaven for both parties, and it didn’t take long before it paid off, as he led them back to the Super Bowl and won the very first ring of his career.
But the Rams struggled to keep their feet on the gas in the following season, dealing with countless injuries.
Stafford was barely able to play and wasn’t exactly efficient when he was on the field, but that wasn’t the reason the Los Angeles Rams were reportedly frustrated with him last season.
According to Colin Cowherd, the team tried to redo his contract, but he wasn’t interested in that.
The Rams were frustrated because of that, and Cowherd believes it’s not far-fetched to think that they could be in the mix for a rookie quarterback in next year’s NFL Draft.
There have been a lot of rumors regarding Stafford’s health going forward.
He was pretty banged up last season, and some even stated he considered retirement.
Even so, the fact that they didn’t hold onto Baker Mayfield after the solid job he did as a fill-in starter last season made people think that Stafford is locked and loaded and ready to go.
Then again, he’s not getting any younger, and it might take a while before the Rams get back to their winning ways.NEXT: Rams Legend Played A Key Role In Sean McVay's Hiring
