The Los Angeles Rams have a lot of roster holes, but you know, build on your strengths.
LA #Rams Sign DL Dominique Easley On 1-Year Deal https://t.co/BkPGUPROc0 pic.twitter.com/213indMBdx— TurfShowTimes (@TurfShowTimes) May 18, 2016
Easley was never concretely linked to the Falcons, but Dan Quinn had confirmed a conversation with him, Easley is young and talented, and he had a connection to the old Florida defensive coordinator. There were concrete injury issues and rumored off-the-field ones, but Easley has enough skill to make those concerns secondary, in my humble opinion, especially because the Falcons have enough talent up front to absorb even a multi-week injury to Easley. Oh well.
Instead, Easley will play for the Rams, who have one of the most dominant defensive lines in the NFL, a terrific young running back, and the #1 pick in the draft at quarterback, and not much else. I'd say it's a curious move for them, but Los Angeles is genuinely savvy at picking up assets on the DL, and Easley should be a nice rotational piece for them. We'll hope the Falcons don't regret passing him up.
