Profootballtalk confirms there's "widespread belief" the Rams and coach Jeff Fisher have an extension in place.
This falls in line with previous reports the Rams plan to move forward with extensions for Fisher and GM Les Snead. There's speculation a deal is already done, but was delayed after a Week 1 loss to the 49ers. The Rams' football ops are a running joke at Rotoworld. Extending Fisher is their latest misdirection.

ESPN's Alden Gonzalez reports contract extensions for Rams coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead have yet to be finalized, but are "expected to get done" even after Week 1's debacle.

Nine games away from being the NFL's all-time losingest coach, Fisher suffered his most comprehensive exposure yet in Week 1, where his team was utterly annihilated by a similarly hapless 49ers squad. The game seems to have passed Fisher by, but owner Stan Kroenke has never been that concerned with wins and losses. Kroenke is focusing on monetizing the team as much as possible and tricking out his new stadium. Fisher could seemingly go 0-16 and retain his owner's trust. The rest of the league is just fine with the arrangement.
Sep 15 - 2:52 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams are expected to extend contract-year coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead before the start of the regular season.

This farce has been unfolding since the winter, when it was first reported the recently-relocated Rams wanted to lock Fisher up through their L.A.-rebuilding years. Headed into his 22nd season as an NFL head coach, Fisher hasn't won more than eight games since 2008, and has cleared the mark just twice in his past 11 campaigns. As our friends at Turf Show Times point out, Fisher is 10 losses away from having the most in NFL history. In other words, he should be on the shortest leash imaginable, but instead has as much job security as Bill Belichick. The Rams are unlikely to ever get over the hump with Fisher on the sideline.

The LA Daily News' Vincent Bonsignore reports the Rams will "pick up" extension talks with coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead "over the next couple months."

ESPN's Nick Wagoner first reported these negotiations in February, but it does not sound like they have gone very far. With Fisher entering the final year of his contract, it makes sense to sign him to a short extension to avoid a lame-duck situation, but any long-term pact would be met with consternation by the fan base. Fisher has never won more than seven games with the Rams and has helmed just two winning seasons since 2004.

The Rams will be the home team of a regular-season game in China in 2018.

The Rams will be the "home" team in three international games over the next three seasons, and it makes plenty of sense to do so with their new extravagant stadium not scheduled to be built until 2019. From 2016-2018, they'll be playing in the L.A. Coliseum, which is approaching its 100th birthday. The game in China will be the league's first in the country.

The Rams will appear on this summer's season of HBO's Hard Knocks.

Get excited, people. The Rams were an easy, slam-dunk choice because of their move to Hollywood this offseason, and now they'll have the cameras capturing the inner workings of a perennial 7-9 underachiever. Coach Jeff Fisher's quarterback "competition" between Case Keenum and Nick Foles will likely be a lowlight of the show, but the Rams do have a number of stars in Todd Gurley, Aaron Donald, and Robert Quinn who will shine even brighter in L.A.
Mar 23 - 9:57 AM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner reports the team is "engaged in talks" with contract-year coach Jeff Fisher and his assistants about extensions.

Only the Rams. Fisher is the epitome of average. He's done little to boost the Rams since he was hired ahead of the 2012 season, and the team's record has actually been getting worse year by year. Fisher seems ignorant to the fact that he needs a real quarterback, not an ineffective "game manager" like Nick Foles or Case Keenum. Anything besides a one-year "extension" that keeps Fisher from being a lame duck in 2016 should be a big disappointment for Rams fans.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Jeff Fisher is safe as the Rams' head coach.

Fisher is football equivalent of the dictionary definition of mediocrity, and is arguably worse. The Rams, however, love Fisher because of his background of moving a franchise from Houston to Tennessee, and Rams ownership wants to move the team to Los Angeles. To Fisher's credit, he's kept St. Louis playing hard down the stretch of yet another lost season. If the Rams beat the 49ers on Sunday, they'll finish 8-8 -- Fisher's best record as St. Louis' head coach.
Jan 3 - 10:39 AM's Ian Rapoport reports Rams coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead are both considered safe for 2016.

It's a cruel joke for Rams fans, but hardly a surprise. With the franchise in relocation chaos, owner Stan Kroenke has bigger worries. He's not going to lead the search for a new head coach as he tries to take his team to Los Angeles. Fisher's teams have regressed since his 2012 arrival, while he and Snead have created one of the least talented offenses in recent memory. Fisher would be fired were he coaching in any other situation.

The Tennessean has heard the Rams and Jets have had discussions with the Titans about trading up to No. 2 overall.

We already knew the Eagles and Browns are very interested in getting up for Marcus Mariota. Now the Titans are likely trying to drive the pricetag up by leaking interest from other teams. It seems unlikely the Rams or Jets would be able to come up with a compensation package anywhere near what the Eagles (with Sam Bradford as a chip) or Browns (with two first-round picks) could offer.

Coach Jeff Fisher says the Rams have yet to have any discussions with teams about trading the No. 2 overall pick.

The Rams are very likely interested in trading down regardless of what Fisher says, but any potential deal likely won't happen until the draft. Fisher did suggest St. Louis could pass on Sammy Watkins if it holds onto the No. 2 overall pick, and hasn't dismissed the possibility of taking Jadeveon Clowney. (Not that coachspeak about draft prospects means anything this time of year.) OT Greg Robinson is another strong possibility if the Rams stay put.

SI's Peter King says the Rams will "have a chance to trade the second pick, and will be very interested in doing so."

With three quarterbacks (Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles) separating themselves from the pack, it's conceivable that the Rams could trade down for a nice haul of picks again. Last time they did it (in the 2012 Robert Griffin deal), they landed a small fortune that included this No. 2 overall pick. This time around, the Vikings and Bucs are among the quarterback-needy teams that might want to move up. If the Rams stay at No. 2, Auburn OT Greg Robinson would make a ton of sense.

The Los Angeles Times reports Rams owner Stan Kroenke recently purchased a 60-acre lot in Inglewood, Cal. that "could potentially be a used for an NFL stadium."

According to reporter Sam Farmer, Kroenke appears to have bought the land late last year. The terms of the Rams' St. Louis lease allow the team to move penalty-free beginning after the 2014 season. In and of itself, the purchase isn't a smoking gun that the Rams are L.A. bound, but it certainly ups the stakes in the team's St. Louis negotiations. Acquiring land is just one in a litany of hurdles any team would have to clear before packing up and heading to Hollywood. Local laws and regulations have made it nearly impossible for a viable stadium deal to emerge. That being said, owning both the team and the necessary land puts Kroenke way ahead of past failed suitors. It's not a good development for fans who want the team to stay in St. Louis.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Rams' No. 22 overall pick is "clearly for sale."

Quarterback-needy teams like the Jaguars, Bills and Jets should listen up. By getting into the back end of the first round, they can likely pluck a signal-caller they have their eye on. Geno Smith, Ryan Nassib and E.J. Manuel could all still be available. It's a good spot for the Rams, who also hold the No. 16 overall pick.
