Rams GM Snead Says He Doesn’t Regret Huge Deals to QB Goff and RB Gurley

Rams general manager Les Snead said he does not regret signing Jared Goff and Todd Gurley to their record-breaking contracts.

“Those are human beings that gave a lot to this organization and deserve to be compensated,” Snead said Tuesday.

Snead met with reporters following a 9-7 season that resulted in the Rams taking third place in the NFC West and missing the playoffs a season after playing in Super Bowl LIII.

Gurley powered the Rams’ offense in Sean McVay’s first two seasons as coach, as he rushed for more than 1,200 yards in back-to-back seasons and last season scored a league-best 21 touchdowns.

But this season, amid reports that he’s suffering from a degenerative knee condition or arthritis, he rushed for a career-low 857 yards and 12 touchdowns in 223 carries. His touches dropped from an average of 22.5 per game last season to 16.9 this season.

McVay throughout the season denied that Gurley was on a load-management program.

Snead pointed to the general state of the run game, an evolving offensive line and opponents’ game plans as reasons for Gurley’s decline.

“We didn’t run the ball this year as well as we have,” Snead said. “We definitely want to get back to being more efficient running the football.”

When asked if Gurley was the same running back he’d proved to be in the past, Snead said, “This year, he wasn’t.”
