2017 LA Rams’ Salary Cap

Now that we put this horrendous season behind us, we can now look forward to a new season under new head coach and his new staff with hopes for a much better outcome.  For them to give us this much brighter outcome they will have a $44,116,822 salary cap with which to work. The salary cap was provided by (provided by spotrac)

I hope they spend it wisely.

Click here to go to spotrac.   Spotrac not only gives the salary, it breaks down players’ salaries, bonus and dead money owed to them.  It also breaks down the dead money owed to former players.  You can also check out the Rams free agents, top salaries, positional spending, and top contracts.

I also found another site that you can g0 to that not only gives you the team’s salary breakdown, but you can calculate a new cap by cutting players from the team and add a free agent.  This site is Over The Cap and you can go to it by clicking here.

A Brief History of The Rams New head Coach

On Thursday, the Rams hired the youngest head coach in the league at 30 years of age. This will be a perfect match for their youngest quarterback and team in the league. But, do not let his young age fool you because he has a pedigree, and Jon Gruden approval.

McVay’s grandfather is John McVay who had a role in five super bowls for the San Francisco Forty-Niners.

The younger McVay also has his own impressive accomplishments as well.  In high school, he played quarterback and defensive back for Marist school where he was the first player to gain 1,000 passing and rushing in consecutive seasons.  During his high school years, he rushed for 2,600 yards and 40 touchdowns and passed for 2,500 yards and 18 touchdowns.  He led the school to 26-3 record with a 14-1 state record in his senior year.  He was named Georgia 4A Offensive Player of the Year for his senior year efforts.

He went to play wide receiver for the the University of Miami(Ohio) where he earned Miami’s Scholar-Athlete Award in 2007. While playing for Miami he caught 39 passes for 312 yards.

After his graduation from the University of Miami(Ohio), he accepts his first coaching assignment with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008.  Jon Gruden, then Buccaneers’ head coach, made his assistant wide receivers coach.  After Gruden’s firing in 2009, McVay became wide receivers/quality control coach for the the Florida Tuskers of the now defunct United Football League(UFL).

In 2010, McVay would return to the NFL, but this time the Washington Redskins.  He would be their assist tight ends coach until 1011 when they promoted him to tights ends coach.

A Gruden would re-enter his life in 2014 when Jon’s son Jay became the Redskins’ head coach.  The younger promoted him to offensive coordinator 2014 where he would remain until becoming the LA Rams new head coach.

In his first year, he turned their number 25th ranked offense to the tenth ranked total offense and would further improve the offense by moving it from the 12th ranked passing offense with a 268.4 average passing yards to number three ranked passing offense with 309.3 yards per pass.

The Chargers Will Be making LA Their New Home

The LA Time has reported that the Chargers have decided to move to LA to the Rams. According to the Times, Dan Spanos made his intentions known to Pete Goodell and several league owners on Thursday.

Since the Chargers’ move not required the league permission, the move will be immediate so the Chargers will be playing their 2017 home games in LA.

I can tell you right now that this move has two groups of unhappy fans.  The first group, of course, being San Diego fans who had their final hopes dashed by a past deadline call by Spanos to Goodell.

The other group of fans are the Rams who do not want to share their team’s stadium wit the Charger fans

Yet, there are others who think that LA  will not support two lousy teams such as these two teams.
