Coaching changesEdit

  • The Cincinnati Bengals hired Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor as their new head coach February 4, 2019.[1]
  • The Rams hired Wes Phillips, son of Wade Phillips, as tight ends coach February 12, 2019.[2] The younger Phillips had served in the same position with the Washington Redskins from 2014 through 2018. He had originally succeeded Sean McVay in that position after McVay was elevated to offensive coordinator.

Notes

  • The Rams traded their second-round selection (No. 63 overall) as well as their fourth-round selection in 2018 (124th) to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for the Chiefs' sixth-round selection in 2018 (209th) and cornerback Marcus Peters.[3]
  • The Rams traded their third-round selection (No. 94 overall) as well as their 2020 fifth-round selection to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for defensive end Dante Fowler.[4]
  • The Rams traded their seventh-round selection and linebacker Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants in exchange for the Giants' fourth- and sixth-round selections in 2018 (102nd and 176th).[5]
  • As the result of a negative differential of free agent signings and departures that the Rams experienced during the 2018 free agency period, the team is projected to receive three compensatory selections for the 2019 draft. Exact numbers of the selections from rounds 4–7 will be determined when compensatory selections are awarded at the NFL's annual spring owners' meetings.[6]
