The Los Angeles Rams earned the franchise's second Super Bowl title during the 2021 NFL season and now turn turn their attention toward repeating next year. Head coach Sean McVay has a roster capable of competing once again, but it would benefit from some more talent being added to the mix.

General manager Les Snead is going to have his work cut out for him, though. LA is currently projected to be $13.2 million over the salary cap limit and may need to shift some things around before making any moves. Let's take a look at three bold predictions for the Rams this offseason.

Rams Bold Predictions

1. Rams Bring Back WR Odell Beckham Jr.

It's safe to say acquiring wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. midway through the season worked out well for the Rams. The three-time Pro Bowler posted 305 yards and 5 touchdowns on 27 receptions in five regular season games with the team. His reliability begs the question of whether or not the front office is going to bring him back on a new deal. Recent reports suggest that Beckham's ACL injury suffered during the Super Bowl may keep him off the field until November. That could mean he takes a short-term deal with the Rams in order to prove he can bounce back before truly testing the free agent waters next offseason. That certainly seems like a win for both sides.

2. Rams Sign Cam Robinson in Free Agency

ProFootballFocus graded the Rams' offensive line as seventh-best in the NFL this past season, but they are likely losing veteran Andrew Whitworth to retirement. LA also faltered down the stretch and allowed quarterback Matthew Stafford to be sacked seven times in the playoffs. Filling in the gap left by Whitworth won't be easy by any means. This free agent class is filled with talented starters, though. Any tackle would be glad to join a contending team like the Rams, including Cam Robinson. The five-year pro gave up just 1 sack across 856 snaps last season. Clearing up enough cap space to sign a lineman like Robinson should be atop on the Rams' list of priorities.

3. Rams Trade Darrell Henderson for a 2022 Draft Pick

Keep in mind these are bold predictions. Darrell Henderson has not done anything to warrant being traded, but the Rams have no top-100 picks in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft. It is clear that McVay is perfectly fine relying on Cam Akers to be the featured back on this team and securing something like a fourth-round pick for Henderson would give the team an opportunity to grab a young playmaker. After all, Sony Michel logged 845 rushing yards and 5 total touchdowns in 17 games played as LA's go-to backup in 2021. The Rams could always re-sign him in order to take on the same role moving forward.
