Los Angeles Rams COO Kevin Demoff has underlined that the Rams will not be waving a white flag after moving on from several star players this offseason. After a disappointing 2022 season in which the Rams didn't come even near to making the playoffs, the Rams decided to make several notable changes.
As a result, All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey is not anymore with the team. Bobby Wagner, who was signed to a five-year deal last year, is also not anymore with the Rams. But the Rams still have three big names from the team that landed them the Super Bowl LVI - Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp and Aaron Donald.
Demoff: The Rams target a deep playoff run and more Super Bowl
“Let me be clear – our goal for 2023 is to win the NFC West and make a deep playoff run. Change doesn’t mean that we expect to take a step back.
Our Super Bowl LVI starting lineup featured 19 starters (out of 22) that didn’t start in Super Bowl LIII just three years prior. Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp and Aaron Donald all enter this offseason as fresh as they have been in a few seasons and hungry to return to their Super Bowl form.
We are excited to have young players such as Cam Akers, Cobie Durant, Van Jefferson and Ernest Jones take on more prominent roles. Sean has assembled a new coaching staff with a focus on great teachers, communicators, and different backgrounds to collaborate and figure out the best way to go win the NFC," Demoff wrote in a letter to season ticket holders, per Pro Football Talk.
The Rams entered the 2022 season regarded as one of the top favorites for the title. But instead of making a deep playoff run, the Rams struggled with injuries and they finished with a 5-12 record. Expectedly, the Rams made changes in the offseason. Now, it remains to be seen how far can the Rams go in the 2023 season.
