Rams' Todd Gurley: Fifth-year option picked up

The Rams have picked up Gurley's fifth-year contract option, USA Today reports.

The running back is thus under contract with the team through the 2019 season. Keeping Gurley around was a no-brainer for the Rams, following a stellar 2017 campaign in which the 23-year-old carried 279 times for 1,305 yards and 13 TDs while adding 64 catches for 788 yards and six receiving scores in 15 games. Heading into the draft, Gurley's top backups are Malcolm Brown and Justin Davis, neither of whom presents a major threat to his workload.
