T.J. McDonald (shoulder) should be healthy enough to participate at some level in OTAs and training camp, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
McDonald underwent surgery in December that ended his season prematurely, but it doesn't look like that should affect his upcoming season in any wya. McDonald has become a playmaker for the Los Angeles Rams , tallying 63 tackles in 11 games last season after hitting triple digits the previous campaign.
Malcolm Brown may be in line to see more carries in 2016 after seeing only one game in 2015, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
With a possible suspension looming for Tre Mason, Brown could find himself third on the depth chart behind Todd Gurley and Benny Cunningham. He had four carries for 17 yards in the season finale last year, and will likely get a hard look in the upcoming preseason.
Benny Cunningham , who had been a restricted free agent, has re-signed with the Los Angeles Rams , the Los Angeles Times reports.
Cunningham -- who rushed for 140 yards on 37 carries and caught 26 passes for 250 yards in 2015 -- had visited with the Patriots in free agency, but he has elected to re-up with Los Angeles where he continue to provide the Rams' backfield with a change-of-pace element behind Todd Gurley, as well as contribute on special teams.
Keenum's vote of confidence from Snead comes after the Rams tendered him a first-round qualifying offer earlier this month, virtually ensuring he'll remain with the team this season. While Los Angeles will almost certainly add a quarterback through the draft, Keenum has now been tabbed by both Snead and head coach Jeff Fisher as the starter heading into the upcoming campaign, when the job will be his to lose.
Coples, whose deal carries a maximum value of $9.75 million, figures to work as a defensive end in the Rams' 4-3 defense, with the team looking to add some pass-rushing depth following the offseason departure of Chris Long. Though Coples was limited to just eight tackles in 2015, he did record 37 tackles and 6.5 sacks while with the Jets in 2014.
