On Monday, the team announced they had signed free agent DT Ndamukong Suh to a 1-year deal, collectively putting the quarterbacks in the NFC West on notice. Even at his age, Suh remains one of the very best interior linemen, even if the counting stats weren't there for him in 2017. The Rams' secondary was strengthened by the addition of cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib.
That was right in the Rams' wheelhouse, poised as they are as an up-and-coming National Football League power with Goff, Gurley, Donald and Peters as their foundation, and offering the positive culture created by 31-year-old head coach Sean McVay and a conscientious locker room.
Once the NFL Draft is over, the focus in Los Angeles will surely turn to a contract extension for Donald.

Maccagnan said despite lower numbers of sacks and tackles in recent seasons, Suh was a dominant player when his scouts viewed game tape. He also won the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year back in 2010.
The New York Jets are sending mixed signals on their decision to bail out of the Ndamukong Suh sweepstakes.
Suh played in both Detroit and Miami before being released by the Dolphins. Along with the incentive of creating $17 million in cap space this year, the move was widely seen as part of coach Adam Gase's attempt to improve the locker room culture following a 6-10 season.
