      Simmons: Rams Trade for No. 1 Overall Pick

      Rams Trade for No. 1 Overall Pick

      So you want to make a splash in Los Angeles — how about trading for the No. 1 overall pick?

      That’s exactly what the Rams have done, making a blockbuster deal to usher in a new era of football in Southern California.

      Both general manager Les Snead and head coach Jeff Fisher expressed gratitude to Rams owner E. Stanley Kroenke for his support in executing the deal.

      “Our philosophy has always been to build through the draft,” Snead said in a statement. “This trade is a reflection of that goal and Mr. Kroenke’s dedication to assembling a winning team on the field. We appreciate his commitment as we continue to improve our roster and lay the foundation for our future through this year’s draft.”

      “Mr. Kroenke has continuously supported us as we’ve developed our team to compete for the NFC West title and playoff appearances,” Fisher said in a statement. “In order to make a move of this magnitude you have to have a good trade partner. We appreciate working with the Titans on an opportunity that can benefit both organizations.”

      The Rams and Titans announced the historic trade on Thursday morning. Tennessee owned the No. 1 overall pick in the draft having finished the 2015 season 3-13.

      Aside from the first selection, Los Angeles will receive the No. 113 pick in Round 4, and the No. 190 overall pick in Round 6. In exchange, Tennessee receives a number of picks from L.A.: No. 15, No. 43, No. 45, and No. 76 overall in 2016, and next year’s first- and third-round selections.

      Los Angeles, presumably, executed the trade to target a quarterback at No. 1. But exactly the player — and the position — will be determined April 28.

      The Rams have selected No. 1 overall five times in franchise history, most recently in 2010. The franchise last traded up to No. 1 in 1997 to select left tackle Orlando Pace, who was just elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2016.

      Roski plans ‘major announcement’

      Buzz Up

      LOS ANGELES (AP)—Edward P. Roski Jr., a part owner of the Kings and Lakers who has spent several years trying to lure an NFL team to the Los Angeles area, has scheduled a news conference at Staples Center to make a “major announcement” concerning the league and L.A.

      On Thursday, Roski will unveil his latest concept for a stadium in the City of Industry, near the southern intersection of the 57 and 60 freeways some 20 miles east of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Times reported on its Web site Wednesday.

      The stadium would be surrounded by a high-end shopping mall, already in the works, the newspaper said.

      Roski didn’t immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press.

      NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the AP that the league wasn’t involved in Thursday’s news conference.

      Los Angeles, the second-largest market in the country, has been without an NFL team since 1995, when the Raiders moved back to Oakland after playing 13 years at the Los Angeles Coliseum and the Rams moved from Anaheim to St. Louis.

      Los Angeles lost out to Houston for an expansion franchise since that time, and the league hasn’t made relocating to the area a top priority in recent years.

      Proposals have been made for numerous stadium sites in the area over the years including the Coliseum and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena as well as in Irwindale, Inglewood, Carson and Anaheim.

      Roski and Philip Anschutz, the head of AEG, headed up construction of Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. The Lakers, Kings and Arena Football League’s Los Angeles Avengers play their home games at the facility, which opened in October 1999. AEG is not involved in Thursday’s news conference either, according to a spokesman.

      Colts at Rams: Keys To The Game, Matchups To Watch

      Indianapolis Colts at Los Angeles Rams: Keys to the game, matchups to watch and prediction

      By The Sports Xchange | Sept. 7, 2017 at 11:34 PM

      KICKOFF: Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. TV: CBS, Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts, Evan Washburn.

      SERIES HISTORY: 44th regular-season meeting. Colts lead series, 23-18-2. The Colts have posted a 14-6-2 home record against the Rams and are 9-12 in away games. The Indianapolis Colts have won three of the last five regular-season meetings. The Rams, though, won the last matchup, 38-8 at Lucas Oil Stadium on Nov. 10, 2013. Indianapolis' last win in the series occurred on Oct. 25, 2009, when the Rams were located in St. Louis, with the Colts posting a 42-6 victory. The Colts have not won a regular-season game against the Rams in Los Angeles since Dec. 21, 1969 (13-7). The Colts have lost their last three regular-season games against the Rams in Los Angeles, the last coming on Sept. 17, 1989 (31-17). The Colts have an 8-10 record against the Rams at Los Angeles Coliseum. The franchises have a shared history in former team owner Carroll Rosenbloom. Rosenbloom owned the Colts from 1953 to 1971 and the Rams from 1972 to 1979. He traded the Colts franchise to Robert Irsay, who had assumed control of the Rams. Irsay's son Jim is now the Colts' owner.

      GAMEDATE: 9/10/17

      KEYS TO THE GAME: With Scott Tolzien starting for injured Andrew Luck, the Colts' offense must find some rhythm through the running game. That won't be easy; Los Angeles' strength on defense has been its defensive line and linebackers. But, it plays into the largely inexperienced Tolzien's favor that star Rams tackle Aaron Donald is still holding out.

      This is no longer the careful, deliberate Rams offense that sloughed around under former coach Jeff Fisher, so expect second-year QB Jared Goff and his new weapons -- Robert Woods, Sammy Watkins, Cooper Kupp and Gerald Everett -- to attack the Colts all over the field. They will hope to create a ground attack to balance things out with a new offensive line opening holes for RB Todd Gurley.

      If the Rams can protect Goff, they should find the end zone against a Colts defense that has a young secondary and will be trying out a remodeled defensive line. Finding a way to put pressure on Goff and force mistakes will be key for the Colts.


      --Colts WR T.Y. Hilton vs. Rams CB Trumaine Johnson. Hilton had 98 catches for 1,449 yards last year and will be a handful for Johnson, whose ability to slow Hilton down could be a difference maker in the Rams beating the Colts.

      --Rams LT Andrew Whitworth vs. Colts DE Henry Anderson. Whitworth was signed to finally elevate the left side of the Rams line from below average to above average, and right off the bat he'll get a chance to prove it in his battle with Anderson, a promising third-year...
