The Los Angeles Rams are in the midst of what general manager Les Snead dubbed a “remodel,” instead of a rebuild. That remodel saw the trading of cornerback Jalen Ramsey this past week.
From one report, it appears they would’ve liked it if quarterback Matthew Stafford was traded also.
According to a report, the Los Angeles Rams would have “welcomed” trading Stafford to the Jets, if Aaron Rodgers hadn’t made his intentions clear. Last week, however, Rodgers made his intentions clear to play for the Jets while stating it was the Packers holding up the trade.
“The Rams would have (we’re told) welcomed the opportunity to trade Stafford,” ProFootballTalk wrote. “If Aaron Rodgers hadn’t decided to join the Jets, Stafford could have become the Plan B, if he would have been willing to go to New York.”

This news comes on the heels of Los Angeles essentially committing $57 million to Stafford on Friday, as his $31 million base salary was guaranteed and a $26 million option bonus will be picked up since he was still employed by the team on the pre-designated date of Mar. 17.
The 35-year-old Stafford is coming off an injury-filled 2022 season where he battled elbow problems and suffered a spinal cord contusion. He started just nine games while completing 68 percent of his passes and tossing 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
