  • FA Center #55
    Allen has been in the NFL for six seasons but has only started double-digit games in a year once. That was in 2021. He missed 10 games in 2022 and was demoted to a backup role this past season. Coleman Shelton handled the starting duties for LA. If healthy, Allen could still be a starting center for an NFL team, but it’s hard to bet on him being available for a full season. The move clears roughly $4.9 million in cap space.
  • LAR Offensive Coordinator
    Ragone served as the Falcons offensive coordinator from 2021 to 2023 and worked with the Bears as a QBs coach/passing game coordinator from 2016 to 2020. A former third-round pick of the Texans in 2003, Ragone spent five seasons in the NFL and joined the coaching ranks in 2010. Ragone struggled to get much out of Mitch Trubisky during his time in Chicago, but that shouldn’t serve as much of an indictment given how Trubisky’s career has played out. He now steps into a role with a savvy vet in Matthew Stafford, who is fresh off a year in which he threw for 3,965-24-11 in 15 games. In addition to Ragone, the Rams also hired Iowa State offensive coordinator Nate Scheelhaase as their pass game specialist.
  • SEA Coaching Staff
    Peetz is a former offensive coordinator at LSU and was on the Buccaneers’ radar to fill the offensive coordinator vacated by Dave Canales, but now he’ll get a chance to work alongside newly-minted offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb. Peetz has spent the last two seasons working as the Rams’ pass game specialist and also has experience as a quarterbacks coach dating back to his time with the Panthers (2020) and at LSU.
  • LAR Coaching Staff
    Smith served as the Chargers’ interim head coach for the final three weeks of the season after the team fired Brandon Staley. Smith went 0-3 during his time with the Chargers but was being targeted by several teams during this coaching cycle. Now, with the Rams, Smith will continue to coach at So-Fi Stadium, which serves as the home to both the Rams and Chargers.
  • LAR Defensive Coordinator
    The son of David and grandson of Don, Shula is perhaps most importantly now a scion of Sean McVay. The Dolphins had been circling for their DC opening as they look to replace Vic Fangio. Still only 37 years old, Shula has been with McVay since the beginning in Los Angeles, so it’s a continuity combined with upside hire. Like Brandon Staley and Raheem Morris before him, Shula comes into the job with a high floor because of perennial All-Pro game-wrecker Aaron Donald. The problem, as always, for McVay is that Shula will get poached immediately if he experiences any level of success. His fancy last name doesn’t hurt, either.

    As one might have guessed, Shula is the grandson of legendary Dolphins head coach Don Shula, who holds the NFL record with 347 career wins. Shula, 37, has spent the last seven seasons with the Rams, serving primarily as a linebackers coach. He served as the pass game coordinator in 2022 and the pass rush coordinator in 2023. While he feels like a long shot to get the job relative to other candidates, Shula’s family ties to the organization make him an interesting candidate. He also received an interview for the Eagles defensive coordinator role last season.
  • LAR Coaching Staff
    Peetz has a direct connection to Baker Mayfield, who spent five games with the Rams in 2022, throwing for 850-4-2 after getting off to an underwhelming start with the Panthers. Peetz, 40, has been around the coaching block, spending time at high-level college programs like Alabama, UCLA, and LSU while also working off-and-on in the NFL since 2012. Peetz’s only season as an offensive coordinator was in 2021 at LSU, which was a tumultuous one for the Tigers, who were still trying to find a quarterback post-Joe Burrow. He was hired by the Rams the following season and has been in his current role for the last two years. His ties to Mayfield could make him a dark horse to land the Bucs’ offensive coordinator vacancy.
  • FA Head Coach
    The Rams became the second known team to interview Rivera for their defensive coordinator role, as the Eagles also met with him early last week. Rivera has expressed interest in coaching next season, even if it isn’t as a head coach, and could find himself on a sideline in the near future. Several defensive coordinator vacancies remain during this coaching cycle, as teams that filled head coaching vacancies have just begun filling out their staffs.
  • ATL Offensive Coordinator #5
    A 37-year-old former Oklahoma State quarterback who spent four years bouncing around the back end of NFL rosters, Robinson just got into coaching in 2019 under golden touch Rams boss Sean McVay. He progressed from assistant QBs coach to QBs coach and passing-game coordinator in the span of just four seasons. His relative inexperience is likely offset by his McVay tutelage. It’s arguably the most consistently productive coaching tree in recent NFL history, rivaled only by Kyle Shanahan. Robinson now needs to hope his new squad finds a quarterback.
  • LAR Coaching Staff #5
    Just about everyone wants an interview with Robinson, the latest hot name off the Sean McVay coaching tree. The Patriots, Steelers, Raiders, and Saints have all expressed interest in Robinson, 37, who has worked for the Rams since 2019. He helped revive Matthew Stafford’s career in 2023 after a down 2022 campaign. The Bucs are replacing former OC Dave Canales, now the Panthers head coach. Tampa is talking to former Bills OC Ken Dorsey and former Eagles OC Brian Johnson about the vacancy.
