The Los Angeles Rams to sign Packers center piece star

REPORT: Green Bay Packers center piece star is reportedly a target for the Los Angeles Rams.

In 2023, the seasons of the Los Angeles Rams and Green Bay Packers were quite comparable. Los Angeles finished the season with a 10-7 record and many highs and lows. The Packers had a 9-8 record in the end and were playing at a high level in the second half of the season.
Both clubs want to go to the next level going into the 2024 campaign. Both believe they have a chance to win the Super Bowl. Still, one of Green Bay’s top players may be of interest to the Rams.
The Los Angeles Rams and the Green Bay Packers might be in competition for the same player.

According toKenneth Arthur of SB Nation:

If the L.A. Rams can’t find a defensive tackle in the draft who can sit on Aaron Donald’s throne for a while, maybe they can do it in trade. Or free agency. And the top name on everyone’s list is going to be Kenny Clark.

As written by Acme Packing Company, the Packers are entering a desperate situation with regard to Clark’s 2024 cap number, meaning that Green Bay probably needs to extend Clark to lower it…or risk parting ways with Clark somehow in the next 10 months.

With that being said, there is one major extension this offseason that is closer to a true fork in the road situation. On the Packers’ 2024 cap table, the number one cap hit on the squad this season is 29-year-old defensive tackle Kenny Clark, who carries a $27.5 million cap hit in a contract year. For perspective, Green Bay only has one other player — cornerback Jaire Alexander — who has a cap hit north of $14.4 million, roughly half of Clark’s 2024 number.

According to Over the Cap, Clark has a 2023 valuation of around $12.8 million per season, which essentially matched his cap hit last year — $12.9 million. Due to Clark essentially having his base salary turned into a signing bonus in every year of his contract extension with the addition of void years, though, the final year of his deal — 2024 — has led to the ballooned $27.5 million cap figure this season.

Even if the Packers let Clark play out this season, Clark will count $13.7 million against the team’s salary cap in 2025 — beyond his $27.5 million cap hit in 2024. And that’s with him hitting free agency. The Packers essentially have $41.2 million remaining to account for in cap dollars for Clark’s remaining lone season on his contract. You don’t have to be a cap guru to realize why the team might want to do something about that.

Both feel they could be Super Bowl contenders. However, the Rams could reportedly be interested in one of Green Bay’s best players.
