Laurinaitis signs new 5-year deal

ESPNís Adam Schefter reported via Twitter that the deal is for five years, and it will pay Laurinaitis a total of $41.5 million, including $23.5 million in guaranteed money.
He, Chris Long, Cortland Finnegan, Robert Quinn locked up....Brockers, Janoris Jenkins, Trumaine Johnson comin in as rookies. I like the way our defense is shaping up.

Lil Animal!!! Good job by Rams to get him inked up for the long term. One of my fav Buckeyes.

tjsunstein 09-08-2012 03:41 PM

That defense is coming together nicely, but the other side of the ball needs to make strides still.

Ness 09-08-2012 03:52 PM

Very underrated linebacker.

That defense is coming together nicely. Their offense is a trainwreck right now, but they have a developing defense and lots of picks to play with in the future.

They're a safety, cb and weakside backer away from being a top tier defense.

I don't think so. I think people make him out to be better than he really is. Not bad, but he's not great either.

Lil animal is very good, not sure why you think this.

At $41.5 mil, he must have jumped all over that offer.

This. Nothing special about lil Hawk....Animal....whatever. 5th best ILB in NFCW for my money. Maybe that new front will work wonders for him but I've never been impressed with his game. He's like AJ Hawk 2.0

Seeing as there are only 3 other teams in the NFCW besides the Rams that is quite a statement. They must all be on Arizona and SF because Seattle is going with a rookie.

Raiderz4Life 09-11-2012 04:56 PM

Well SF has P-Willie and NaVorro Bowman, Zona has Daryl Washington. Not sure who the other two would be.

BuckeyeDan17 09-11-2012 05:02 PM

did he at least learn how to shed blocks once he got to st. louis? I haven't followed him really since he got to the NFL.

Perhaps not, since some of you are implying that he's overrated.

fenikz 09-11-2012 05:28 PM

I would take Paris Lennon over him still

hell you could argue Larry Grant as well

Babylon 09-11-2012 08:35 PM

I guess the implication is the Rams must be pretty stupid to pay him that kind of money.

Borat 09-11-2012 09:17 PM

Pile jumpers get paid!


Raiderz4Life 09-11-2012 09:17 PM

Compared to what Daryl Washington is getting, this deal looks kinda dumb now.

Can we have Paris back? Please?

D-Unit 09-11-2012 09:41 PM

6 years, $36 for Daryl Washington is better than 5 years, $41 for Laurinaitis.

fenikz 09-11-2012 09:43 PM

paying less money for a better player is always a good thing

holt_bruce81 09-11-2012 10:07 PM

You guys are all fuckheads. Laurinaitis is the 2nd best mlb in the nfcw.

prock 09-11-2012 10:11 PM

Overpaid but **** it. Sometimes you got to overpay people to keep them around. He is a solid linebacker that has a good presence on that defense.

Uhhhhhhhh, no.

Second best if you remove SF from the equation? Possibly.
