The Titans announce they have hired Mike Vrabel as their new head coach, which means Matt LaFleur, who interviewed, will remain the Rams' offensive coordinator. He's crucial in helping Sean McVay call plays, but also in Jared Goff's development.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Pro Football Writers of America selected Rams QB Jared Goff as its Most Improved Player. Obvious choice. From 2016 to ‘17, Goff made huge strides in completion percentage (54.6 to 62.1), yards per attempt (4.3 to 8.5), touchdown-to-interception ratio (0.71 to 4.00) and passer rating (63.6 to 100.5).

Case Keenum and Nick Foles were 2 of 9 Rams starting quarterbacks from the end of Marc Bulger (Nov. 22, 2009) to the start of Jared Goff (Nov. 20, 2016). The others, if you feel like reminiscing: Kyle Boller, Keith Null, Sam Bradford, AJ Feeley, Kellen Clemens, Austin Davis, Shaun Hill.

Mel Kiper Jr.'s first mock draft has the Rams selecting CB Carlton Davis out of Auburn, which underscores their need there. Trumaine Johnson and Nickell Robey-Coleman are free agents, and Kayvon Webster is coming off a ruptured Achilles. It's easily their biggest position of need.

Sean McVay tabbed Coach of Year by PFWA

Sean McVay of the Los Angeles Rams was named Coach of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America. Howie Roseman of the Philadelphia Eagles was chosen as Executive of the Year.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Rams LS Jake McQuaide has been named to the Pro Bowl for the second straight year, joining P Johnny Hekker, K Greg Zuerlein, KR/PR Pharoh Cooper, DT Aaron Donald, RB Todd Gurley and LT Andrew Whitworth. Donald and Zuerlein won't participate. QB Jared Goff can join the group if he wants. He's a first alternate, and Carson Wentz, another Pro Bowl QB, won't be able to participate because of injury. Goff can't officially be named to the Pro Bowl until either Wentz has his end-of-season physical or his team advances to the Super Bowl. But because he's an alternate, Goff won't officially be recognized as a Pro Bowler unless he accepts the invitation. We should know by early next week.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Pro Football Writers of America selected Tom Brady over Todd Gurley as their MVP. Gurley was Offensive Player is the Year, with Jaguars DE Calais Campbell — and not Aaron Donald — the Defensive Player of the Year. The PFW and Associated Press have chosen the same MVPs each of the last 13 years.

Re-grading every NFL team's 2017 offseason

Few paid much attention last March when the Minnesota Vikings signed Case Keenum to a one-year contract for $2 million -- but that move became one of the most pivotal of the 2017 season. Here's how every team's offseason acquisitions look now.

Matt LaFleur seems like a longshot at this point in his trajectory, but hey, so did Sean McVay. Regardless, perhaps it's the start of him getting noticed. LaFleur previously served as a QB coach under Kyle Shanahan with the Browns and Falcons. Could someday take over Rams playcalling duties.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Can confirm that the Titans will be interviewing Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur for their head coaching job. LaFleur did not call plays this season, but he was big in assisting Sean McVay in his first year as head coach and playcaller. Under McVay and LaFleur, the Rams became the first team in the Super Bowl era to go from last to first in scoring from one season to the next.

The Rams had a league-best six players named to the Pro Football Writers' All-NFL team: RB Todd Gurley, LT Andrew Whitworth, DT Aaron Donald, K Greg Zuerlein, P Johnny Hekker, KR/PR Pharoh Cooper.
