Rams fans are buzzing about the team’s offseason moves, particularly on offense. But given what’s transpired out West, have they merely been keeping pace with division powers San Francisco and Seattle?
The bandwagons are getting so crowded in those two NFL precincts, the entire West Coast might just tip over and fall into the Pacific Ocean. The 49ers and Seahawks engaged in a fascinating arms race that began with the start of the free agency/trading period in March.

You trade for Percy Harvin, Seattle? OK, we’ll trade for Anquan Boldin.

And that was just the beginning. The 49ers bolstered their already formidable defense by adding former Pro Bowl cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey in free agency.

The Seahawks countered by adding much-needed pass-rush help in defensive ends Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril in free agency.

And so it went. Amid all the early talk about Seattle and San Francisco, Rams coach Jeff Fisher was asked weeks before the draft if he paid attention to what the rest of NFC West was doing this offseason.

‘Yeah, you pay attention to it,” Fisher said.

But then, as if a little weary of hearing all the 49ers and Seahawks hype, Fisher added: “I’m thinking they’re paying attention to the moves we make as well. They’ve gotta play us too.”

The Rams went for quality over quantity in free agency, adding a pair of potential impact players in Pro Bowl left tackle Jake Long and talented tight end Jared Cook. Not to be overlooked was the re-signing of super sub defensive end William Hayes.
