The Los Angeles Rams certainly had many opportunities to trade Cam Akers, but would not pull the trigger. The NFL trade deadline came and went Tuesday with Cam Akers remaining a member of the Los Angeles Rams.
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Rams turned down multiple offers for Akers. They’re now working with his agent in hopes that Akers will play for them again this season.
The Rams had reportedly been “open” to trading the disgruntled 23-year-old, but ultimately changed their mind once teams started calling.
Akers is said to be hoping for a “fair resolution” to the situation after the Rams opted not to trade him before the deadline. According to Spotrac, there is no more guaranteed money left on Akers’ rookie contract.
He has rushed for only 151 yards and one touchdown this season and has not played since October 9 due to “personal reasons.” Despite hm being inactive, he still leads the Rams in carries with 51. This season, Akers was averaging just three yards per carry.
The Rams have gained only 479 yards on 147 carries in seven games.
