Flacco threw a touchdown pass on his only series of the game, rookie Lamar Jackson ran for a score and Baltimore rolled to a 33-7 preseason victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night. Baltimore (2-0) led 17-0 after the first period and cruised to the finish against the Rams (0-1), who rested offensive stars Jared Goff and Todd Gurley.

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

Tuesday's deadline to report to training camp came and went as defensive end Aaron Donald's holdout with the Los Angeles Rams continued, but general manager Les Snead hinted Wednesday that a deal could be getting closer. Snead told reporters that the Rams and Donald, 27, were "in the same zip code, area code, ballpark" in their negotiations. Snead, who said the Rams have an offer on the table, clarified that "Zip code usually means you're close, but we still haven't agreed." Per NFL rules, Tuesday marked the deadline for players to report to training camp in order to accrue a season toward free agency, as it is 30 days before the NFL season opener.

Donald deserves more than what I got, says Suh

Monday, July 30th, 2018

Ndamukong Suh believes Los Angeles Rams team-mate Aaron Donald deserves a more lucrative contract than the record-breaking deal he himself signed in 2015. Donald is a no-show at the Rams' training camp for a second consecutive year as he continues to chase a new and improved contract. Von Miller, of the Denver Broncos, has since signed a contract with $70m guaranteed, but Suh puts Donald in that ballpark.

Thursday, July 26th, 2018

Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald was not with the team when training camp opened Wednesday, as was the case last season. Last season, Donald didn't join the Rams until the day before the season opener in September. Because of that holdout, Donald would not attain an accrued season for 2018 if not in camp by Aug. 7 and would instead be a restricted free agent next offseason.

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018

The Los Angeles Rams have signed running back Todd Gurley to a four-year extension worth $60 million, according to multiple reports Tuesday. Per reports, the deal includes $45 million in guaranteed money, which easily eclipses New York Giants rookie Saquon Barkley ($31.2 million) for the most of any NFL running back. The annual average of $15 million is more than Le'Veon Bell will receive in 2018 on his franchise tender ($14.5 million) and approaching double the pay of the next-highest running back (Devonta Freeman, $8.25 million) in the league.
