The Los Angeles Rams are absorbing salary cap punishment this season and clearing the decks way for next season. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.  This according to league sources. The Rams are carrying $75 million of dead money against their salary cap in 2023 but have no significant dead money -- just $700,000 -- counting against their 2024 salary cap.

Along with the upcoming cap room, the Rams are younger and have future draft picks in hand.

For the first time in a long time, the Rams have one of the NFL's youngest rosters, with their players averaging just under 26 years of age. In Week 1, Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell became the first pair of wide receivers age 23 or under to each have over 100 receiving yards in the same game since Del Shofner and Lamar Lundy in 1958.

And the Rams finally are slated to have a first-round pick next year, their first since they used the No. 1 overall pick on quarterback Jared Goff in 2016. They also have all their own picks and four compensatory picks, currently putting them at 11 draft selections in April.
