The Los Angeles Rams would like to prove that their Super Bowl LVI victory wasn’t luck.
Therefore, they want to win more titles in the next few years to solidify their dynasty.
General Manager Les Snead has been shrewd in making sure that the team remains competitive after some initial success.
He has already built the core that will keep the Rams as one of the league’s top teams.
However, their window of opportunity has an expiration and they must make the most of their opportunity now.

Pro Football Focus shows the expiration of the notable contracts on the Rams’ roster.
Aaron Donald‘s deal will end in 2024 because the team did not add years to his contract.
However, they did add a ton of money to make him the highest-paid non-quarterback in the NFL.
It would be difficult to see him playing beyond that season because he has contemplated retirement.
If the Rams end up winning more titles during his tenure, there would be nothing left for him to chase.
Meanwhile, the team signed All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey to a five-year, $100 million deal in 2020.
That contract will keep him with the Rams until 2025 when he is already 31 years old.
Unfortunately, Father Time hasn’t been generous to cornerbacks as they age and Ramsey could be a casualty.
He could still play beyond that year, but he might not be the same defensive menace he once was.
Solid Partnership On The Rams Offense
Stafford signed a four-year, $160 million extension while Kupp got a three-year, $90 million deal with $75 million in guaranteed money.
That amount makes the reigning Offensive Player of the Year one of the highest-paid wideouts in the league.
Even if Donald and Ramsey decide to not return, Stafford and Kupp will keep the Rams competitive.
After which, it’s difficult to see where the franchise is going, unless Snead has more tricks up his sleeve.
