Forget Le’Veon Bell and Adrian peterson … Eric dickerson says if Rams turn to vet to help fill RB void left after Cam Akers‘injury – they MUST give Todd gurley a call!
The former Rams superstar explained it all to TMZ Sports at LAX this week… saying Gurley would be the perfect runner to sign if LA doesn’t like what he’s seeing of Akers save this summer.
“It’s a no-brainer,” Dickerson said of Gurley’s rewrite. “I mean, he knows the offense, he knows this offense. He doesn’t have to come in and try to find out.”
“He knows [Sean] McVay, he knows the guys on the team – that would be an easy fix. “
Of course, there are a lot of roadblocks that both sides would have to go through to get to this point – many of which Dickerson himself acknowledges.
First of all, the two sides didn’t have the best breakup when the Rams evolved of their former star in 2020.
Gurley also didn’t look very good in his one season in Atlanta last year, going just 3.5 yards per carry.
But, Todd is a free agent looking for a home in the NFL, and the Rams could use the help – so Dickerson says “trading decisions” could end up motivating both sides to reconnect and profit from it. ‘a new marriage.
“At the end of the day, football is about business,” Dickerson said. “That’s what it comes down to. You have to make business decisions.”
“You have to make decisions that are good for the football team, and the player has to make the decisions that are best for him.”
As for Akers … Dickerson tells us it is sad to see the young star undergo such a horrible Achilles tendon injury this week – but he says he’s confident the 22-year-old will bounce back and be ready for 2022.
