NFL Rumors: Los Angeles Rams General Manager Could Have Extension Coming

The Los Angeles Rams are approaching a self-imposed deadline to extend general manager Les Snead. According to the Athletic's Jordan Rodrigue, the team had intended to sign Snead to a new deal before the regular season opener: That season opener, of course, is later tonight. Should the team really want to commit to their Super Bowl-winning front office leader, they're running out of time. Maybe they're saving some good news for the broadcast.

Snead is the rare general manager to achieve true celebrity in this league thanks to his brazen 'F them picks' mentality. Notorious for trading away his highest value picks, the Rams have gone seven consecutive years without nabbing a player in the first round of the NFL Draft. Those f-ing picks have been put to use acquiring veteran superstars including quarterback Matthew Stafford and defensive back Jalen Ramsey.

Snead has been with the Rams since 2012, bridging the gap from the Jeff Fisher era to the team's recent run of success under head coach Sean McVay. Before that, Snead spent three years as director of player personnel for the Atlanta Falcons, during which the team had three consecutive winning seasons.
