Some of that talent was drafted by the organization, and some was not, but the source did not matter to LA as much as the presence of the talent and the timing of its infusion. The team did not concern itself over potential “distractions” in acquiring the likes of Peters and Talib. (And, yes, the Rams got a little lucky with health.)That combination of foresight, QB-related cap convenience, risk-taking and timely aggression will be difficult for another team to reproduce. The Packers, for example, are stuck with Aaron Rodgers taking up 13.5 percent of their cap space. For now, the Giants and Bengals are in similar positions with aging passers. The Cardinals, Browns and Bears will have to hope the right free agents become available at the right times before they have to pay their young QBs … and hope their GMs are brave enough to take chances.MORE: Why Patriots’ sixth Super Bowl mattersEverything lined up perfectly for the Rams’ run to the Super Bowl in 2018. That’s rare, but it’s even more unfamiliar to see a team utilize proper aggression when the opportunity presents itself; to see a team “go all in” for one season, as they say. The Rams had already fueled one NFL trend before they fell to the Patriots 13-3 in Super Bowl 53 on Sunday. Despite the loss, they might still spark at least one more movement.For the sake of entertainment both on and off the field, let’s hope that happens. Let’s hope the managerial aggression Los Angeles used to thrust itself to the top of the NFC is imitated. Naturally, other NFL teams will not be capable of the same level of success, but their efforts will be fun as hell to watch. The product was one of the most entertaining teams in league history. The Rams’ journey was full of risk, and it was fun to watch. In the end, they fell a few plays short. But as that Super Bowl played out, everybody outside of New England was waiting to see more of what they had come to expect from Los Angeles.Aggression. Risk-taking. Fearlessness. Fun.More of that in the NFL, please. Potential failure be damned. Yes, Los Angeles has been able to spend aggressively thanks to the cheap rookie contract of quarterback Jared Goff. (It’s worth mentioning that none of the league’s six highest-paid QBs made the playoffs in 2018.) But the final haul that landed Suh, Talib, Cooks and Marcus Peters would not have been possible without foresight on the part of Snead. Fitzgerald explains:MORE: NFL’s 25 highest-paid players“Over the last four years, (the Rams) have operated near the bottom of the NFL in cap space, at times even needing to work minor contract restructures late in the year just to deal with in-season injuries. This is often a sign of poor cap management, but it can also be strategic.“Back when the Rams were still struggling to win games under then-coach Jeff Fisher, they were structuring many deals in a way that tied large portions of guarantees into second-year roster bonuses, plus prorated signing and option bonuses. The approach compromised their salary cap for the long term, but the Rams knew that whenever they would be able to upgrade at QB, they would be able to do everything they could to surround him with talent. That strategy paid off in 2018.”The Rams lost to the Patriots in Super Bowl 53 despite incredible efforts from those recently-added defensive players. And despite LA’s putrid overall offensive play, Cooks easily led the team with 120 receiving yards on eight catches. Talent was not the issue for the Rams. McVay admitted he simply got outcoached by Bill Belichick in what was a one-score game until 1:12 remained on the clock. Sean McVay, 33, fell just short of becoming the youngest coach ever to win a Super Bowl. But it was the turnaround he manufactured in LA prior to the 2018 season that, in part, pushed teams like Bears and Giants to follow suit in hiring relatively young, offensive-minded head coaches a year ago. The Cardinals, Browns and Packers made similar moves with their coaching hires in 2019, and the Bengals reportedly will soon. This is why the NFL is often called a “copycat league.”STEELE: Rams waste epic defense in Super BowlYet the Rams posted a 24-8 record in McVay’s first two seasons, the third most for any NFL head coach in his first two years. So among the copycats in Chicago, New York, Arizona, Cleveland and Green Bay, there will be relative failures.The same can be said for teams that try to emulate the way Los Angeles built a roster worthy of a Super Bowl appearance.Sporting News contributor and OverTheCap.com founder Jason Fitzgerald recently broke down the key roster moves the Rams have made since 2012, when Les Snead was hired as general manager. The roots of this NFC champion can be traced back to the memorable Robert Griffin III trade with the Redskins, and the 2018 offseason brought the haul that officially made LA a contender.IYER: Breaking down Gronk’s finest momentAs Fitzgerald points out, over the last two years, the Rams added more than $131 million in contracts that averaged at least $5 million per year. They included deals for 12 players, ranging from Nickell Robey-Coleman’s $5.5 million-per-year contract to Aaron Donald’s $22.5 million-per-year extension.The takeaway here: Roughly 23 percent of the Rams’ 2018 roster was paid (and paid well) over the last two years. And the names — Donald, Ndamukong Suh, Todd Gurley, Brandin Cooks, Andrew Whitworth, Aqib Talib, Robert Woods, John Sullivan, among others — were huge.
