LA teams make moves


NFL free agency begins

With the league's new year beginning tomorrow, many teams and free agents have already engaged in talks and verbal contract agreements during the tampering period. All three California teams have been active to some extent, with more moves coming during the week.

At the time of this article, the San Fransico 49ers started the tampering period with a little over 6 million dollars in cap space, signing DE/OLB Leonard Floyd for two years, 20 million dollars with 12 million guaranteed. They also signed DE Yetur Gross-Matos to a 2-year 18-million-dollar deal. The 49ers resurrected LB Fred Warner's contract, saving them 10 million dollars in cap space and reducing his cap hit to 13 million dollars. With them filling the need at DE they will look towards the draft.

The Los Angeles Chargers have the ability to have one of the more interesting offseason as they hired former Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh to replace former head coach Brandon Staley and have started to gut the roster. After not resigning several stars, the Charges have also put stars like WR Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, DE Joey Bosa, and Khalil Mack on the trade block. They have signed free agents RB Gus Edwards and TE Will Dissley to offset the loss of RB Austin Eleker and TE Gerald Everett. The Chargers currently have a little over 7 million dollars in cap space.

The Los Angeles Rams have made several long-time signs with upgrades to the offensive line by signing OG Kevin Dotson and Jonah Jackson to 3-year contracts. They also welcomed back CB Darious Williams and WR Demarcus Robinson. After the signs, the Rams currently have 29 million in cap space, possibly looking to sign a pass rusher.
