Stetson Bennett excited to work with Sean McVay: “I hear he’s a genius”

Matthew Stafford acknowledged he’s not 25 anymore but definitely feels good, which leads Mike Florio and Chris Simms to outline how much longer the QB will be with the Rams and how far the team can go.

New Rams quarterback Stetson Bennett thinks he can learn a lot from his new coach Sean McVay.

Bennett, the two-time national champion from Georgia who will back up Matthew Stafford, said he thinks McVay is a coach he can learn from.

“Excited to work with Coach McVay. I don’t know much, but I hear he’s a genius,” Bennett said. “And excited to work with Matt and all the other quarterbacks in the room.”

Bennett said after meeting with the Rams in a pre-draft interview, his takeaway was “that they’re real smart and I’ve got a lot to learn.” He said that in watching the Rams’ offense, he thought “they make it look easy, but I know it’s not.”

The Rams chose Bennett in the fourth round, with the 128th overall pick, which was higher than most people expected Bennett to go. They think the 25-year-old Bennett has potential to develop in McVay’s offense.
