    Bonsignore: Sammy Watkins is Rams’ gift to Jared Goff

    The to-do list was daunting as the Rams trudged off the field at the Coliseum on New Year’s Day to end the 2016 season. Sitting at the bottom of almost every offensive category had resulted in a 4-12 record and left rookie quarterback Jared Goff battered and bruised. Just over seven months later, that to-do list is complete, the final item getting crossed off Friday with the addition of dynamic wide receiver Sammy Watkins in a blockbuster trade as shocking as it’s...

    Rams trade for Bills WR Sammy Watkins, give up CB E.J. Gaines, second-round pick

    IRVINE >> There are no do-overs in the NFL draft, but the Rams tried their best Friday. In 2014, the Rams could have drafted receiver Sammy Watkins at No. 2. They thought about it, and even brought in Watkins in for a workout, but they went with offensive tackle Greg Robinson. Watkins went to Buffalo at No. 4 and totaled 1,000 yards in his second season. Robinson lost his job in his third season. It’s not that the Rams got a freebie. To get Watkins in a trade from...

    Rams acquire Bills WR Sammy Watkins for CB E.J. Gaines, 2nd-round pick

    The Rams made a big move to boost their young group of receivers Friday when they acquired Sammy Watkins from Buffalo in a trade for cornerback E.J. Gaines and the Rams’ 2018 second-round draft pick.

    Bonsignore: What is Aaron Donald seeking with holdout?

    IRVINE — The Rams will play their first preseason game of 2017 Saturday against the Dallas Cowboys at the Coliseum. Barring a major development between now and kickoff, their best player won’t even be in the same area code, let alone in uniform and on the field with the rest of his teammates. The contract holdout of All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald continues to linger, hovering over the Rams like a thick morning marine layer off the Pacific Ocean. On and on it...

A day later, it remained unclear if Johnson followed his remark by sticking out his tongue at the Chargers and threatening to give Dean Spanos a nuclear wedgie. In an...

    Pharoh Cooper feels like a veteran among a young group of Rams receivers

    IRVINE >> Only on this team, in this situation, could Pharoh Cooper be considered a veteran. Cooper is in his second NFL training camp and has caught 14 passses in regular-season games. Among the 12 receivers on the field for the Rams at UC Irvine on Thursday, only one other guy could say that. So, Cooper, at age 22 and entering his second season, is someone being looked upon for leadership. He has the makeup to handle it, and the Rams hope he has the on-field skills to...
