JUST IN: Club insider reveal Los Angeles Rams NFL trade deadline plans after meeting with club Management and CEO Stan Kroenke

Over the last decade or so, Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead has been the most active figure at his job in the NFL on the trade market.

Due to the various trades Snead has made, Los Angeles has not made a first-round pick in the NFL Draft since selecting Jared Goff first overall in 2016.

With the Rams having a somewhat surprise 3-4 start to the season, some speculated that they might go back to the well and make a huge move before the Oct. 31 NFL trade deadline.

That does not appear to be the case. Los Angeles is anticipated to stay idle for the next three days, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

          “In background conversations with team and league sources, I am not getting the sense that the Rams will be                                    very active next week — barring some sort of out-of-the-blue proposition from another team.”

Things can, of course, change. The Rams offered two first-round selections and change for Carolina Panthers standout EDGE rusher Brian Burns ahead of last season’s NFL trade deadline. The defending Super Bowl champions were 3-3 at the time of the deadline. This time, they are only a half-game below that milestone.

Los Angeles Rams’ NFL trade deadline will be quiet

On the other side, this Rams team does not appear to be a real postseason candidate.

During the summer, they parted ways with players like Jalen Ramsey and Allen Robinson, as well as other key members of their championship roster. In fact, Los Angeles’ 3-4 start to the season has surprised many.

At this moment, it appears more likely that the Rams will be sellers if they are active in the days running up to the deadline on Tuesday. They are scheduled to play the Dallas Cowboys this weekend. A loss in that game might make Snead’s decision a little simpler.
Other clubs may be interested in left tackle Joe Noteboom, tight end Tyler Higbee, and cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon. However, trading them would be little in the great scheme of things.

Despite recent trade speculations involving future Hall of Famer Aaron Donald, it’s quite improbable that he’ll be transferred during the season.
