After spending more than a decade in Detroit as the Lions' former No. 1 overall pick from the 2009 NFL Draft, Matthew Stafford has both a bright and fresh start ahead of him in Los Angeles.

The Rams certainly have a win-now roster, and bringing in Stafford for his arm talent makes for a clear upgrade over former Rams QB Jared Goff. And with Stafford's talent at the QB position, the Rams' already-stacked receiving corps should be an even more loaded force to be reckoned with in 2021 and beyond.

Especially with the way Stafford has already taken notice of the new weapons at his disposal.

The two most notable new weapons are WRs Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, who have both hauled in 90 or more receptions with at least 900 receiving yards to go with that in each of the last two seasons.

Considering they did that with Goff on the other end of those passes to begin with leaves a pretty exciting imagination for Rams' fans with Stafford under center, especially with the way he loved to sling it downfield in Detroit.

Led by what promises to be one of the NFL's best passing attacks, the Rams' Super Bowl odds (+1300) rank fifth in the NFL on FanDuel Sportsbook.
