Rams apply franchise tag to safety Lamarcus Joyner

Rams apply franchise tag to safety Lamarcus Joyner
rams-apply-franchise-tag-to-safety-lamarcus-joyner

Perhaps no player on the Rams’ roster made a bigger transition than Lamarcus Joyner, who went from disgruntled cornerback to “franchise” safety,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/alec-ogletree-jersey-authentic]Womens Alec Ogletree Jersey[/url], a move the Rams made official Tuesday.

 which means they are all but guaranteed to keep him under control for the 2018 season and not lose him to free agency this month.,Joyner received an non-exclusive franchise tag from the Rams

The use of the non-exclusive tag, rather than the exclusive-rights tag,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/greg-zuerlein-jersey-authentic]Authentic Greg Zuerlein Jersey[/url], means Joyner can negotiate and sign an offer sheet with another team this month. The Rams then would have the right to match the offer sheet or decline it and receive two first-round picks, a hefty sum which makes an offer sheet unlikely.

 who now becomes a top candidate to leave when the league’s free-agent negotiation period begins Monday. It remains possible the Rams could re-sign Watkins,The Rams debated internally whether to tag Joyner or receiver Sammy Watkins, before that day., and other pending free agents

 though,In tagging Joyner, during a time of some tumult. The Rams already have traded veteran linebacker Robert Quinn and could lose linebacker Connor Barwin and cornerback Trumaine Johnson to free agency., the Rams ensured a valuable part of their 2017 defense will return

Joyner, has been slowed at times by minor injuries but is coming off a breakthrough season in which he recorded the first three interceptions of his career., who is set to enter his fifth NFL season

Undersized, Joyner is aggressive and looked comfortable at free safety last season. A year earlier, 190 pounds, due to unhappiness with his role. Joyner settled in nicely in 2017., and listed at 5-foot-8, Joyner expressed frustration to then-coach Jeff Fisher, and even mentioned the idea of quitting football

 who rose into a starting role last season after being drafted in the third round.,Joyner is expected to remain in a safety partnership with John Johnson

 the Rams still have until mid-July to reach a new deal with Joyner that would override the tag tender.,The Rams had hoped to sign Joyner to a new long-term contract by now. The franchise tag includes a contract worth almost $11.3 million. Even if (as is expected) Joyner accepts that tendered contract

Matters are less complicated for Watkins and the Rams’ other pending free agents, center John Sullivan and cornerbacks Johnson and Nickell Robey-Coleman., a list that also includes Barwin

 the Rams have approximately $46 million in salary-cap space,After two trades, and they can add another $3 million to that if, which brought in cornerback Marcus Peters and sent out Quinn, they cut receiver Tavon Austin in the coming weeks., as expected

 but many other teams also have plentiful space,That’s a solid amount of cap space, who is under contract for 2018 but seeks a massive new deal., so the market for free agents should be strong. The Rams also must keep in mind star defensive lineman Aaron Donald

Among the Rams’ high-profile pending free agents, whom they acquired ni August in a trade that sent cornerback E.J. Gaines and this year’s second-round draft pick to Buffalo., Robey-Coleman and Sullivan seem most likely to return. The Rams now run the risk of losing Watkins

 even though he totaled only 39 receptions and 593 yards last season. Watkins did catch eight touchdowns,If he reaches the free-agent market, Watkins will be highly coveted, with the belief a full season in their system will lead to on-field improvements., and the Rams would like to retain him

 even if they’re unsigned when the negotiation period begins Monday. That period lasts 48 hours,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/]Womens Maurice Alexander Jersey[/url],The Rams hope to remain in contact with players such as Johnson and Watkins, players officially become free agents and can sign new contracts., and then on March 14

 which won’t become official until March 14 when the league year officially begins,Details of the trade,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/alec-ogletree-jersey-authentic]Authentic Alec Ogletree Jersey[/url],[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/johnny-hekker-jersey-authentic]Authentic Johnny Hekker Jersey[/url], but the Rams are expected to gain a mid-round draft pick and also exchange late-round picks with the Dolphins., weren’t immediately confirmed

 who had been with the Rams since they drafted him in the first round in 2011,Quinn, when he moved from defensive end to linebacker and recorded 8.5 sacks.,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/trumaine-johnson-jersey-authentic]Womens Trumaine Johnson Jersey[/url], was solid last season

 though,In trading Quinn, which they can use to sign their own pending free agents or others on the open market. The savings also could help the Rams sign star defensive lineman Aaron Donald to the new contract he strongly desires.,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/johnny-hekker-jersey-authentic]Womens Johnny Hekker Jersey[/url], the Rams will create more than $12 million in salary-cap room

 and the Rams’ other starting outside linebacker,That’s notable, but the Rams now face an offseason rebuild at an important position. Quinn is gone, can leave via free agency this month., Connor Barwin

 the Rams’ depth chart at outside linebacker arguably is topped by Samson Ebukam and Ejuan Price,So, two 2017 rookies. The Rams are expected to be more aggressive, for the moment at least, especially if they don’t bring back Barwin., both in free agency and next month’s draft

 to the outside,Another option could be to move one of the Rams’ inside linebackers, Mark Barron or Alec Ogletree, given his high salary., but Barron also is considered a candidate to be cut loose

 for all practical purposes,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/greg-zuerlein-jersey-authentic]Womens Greg Zuerlein Jersey[/url],This already has been a busy offseason for the Rams. Last week, they agreed to a trade with Kansas City that will bring in star cornerback Marcus Peters. They also, either through a outright release or a trade (which is far less likely)., have decided to cut ties with receiver Tavon Austin

 even though Quinn doesn’t turn 28 until May and could still have a number of quality seasons ahead of him.,The Quinn move made sense for the Rams on a number of fronts

After injury-interrupted seasons in 2015 and 2016, but he was far from a perfect fit in coordinator Wade Phillips’ scheme., [url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/mark-barron-jersey-authentic]Authentic Mark Barron Jersey[/url],Quinn stayed mostly healthy last season and was one of the Rams’ top pass-rushers

 Quinn was asked to play linebacker for the first time,A natural defensive end, that meant playing close to the line of scrimmage on a regular basis. Quinn thrived when it came to getting to the opposing quarterback but was less than stout in run defense., although in Phillips’ aggressive 3-4

 after a stellar 2013 season,Quinn’s departure long had been anticipated. Quinn signed a four-year, $57-million contract in Sept. 2014, with salary-cap hits of approximately $12.4 million in 2018 and $12.9 million in 2019., but then the run of injuries started. Quinn has two years left on that deal

Quinn had been considered a candidate for outright release, the Rams saved the full $12.4 million in cap room and potentially replaced the fourth-round pick they sent to Kansas City in the trade for Peters.,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/]Authentic Maurice Alexander Jersey[/url], but with the trade

 even if they created a couple holes on their depth chart. Peters will cost the Rams $3 million in 2018,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/mark-barron-jersey-authentic]Womens Mark Barron Jersey[/url],Within the past two weeks, the Rams have shrewdly created financial flexibility, who made $16.7 million last year and is expected to leave via free agency.,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/trumaine-johnson-jersey-authentic]Authentic Trumaine Johnson Jersey[/url], but that’s the same figure the Rams will save if they cut Austin this month. Peters also is a solid replacement for cornerback Trumaine Johnson

Quinn’s departure could increase the Rams’ possibility of signing two of their top pending free agents, and gives them more spending money on the free-agent market., safety Lamarcus Joyner and receiver Sammy Watkins
