The Los Angeles Rams have made some interesting moves as the second day of Free Agency in the NFL wraps up and everyone can start to take a breath, look back and analyze what has happened. The team signed three new players, released five players and made one trade in a flurry of moves.

So far the team has only lost one free agent, as wide receiver Kenny Britt went to the Cleveland Browns. However, indications have pointed to safety T.J. McDonald not returning and cornerback Trumaine Johnson is still in trade limbo after being franchised tagged.

The Rams's new signings

The Rams first signing was stealing left tackle Andrew Whitworth away from the Cincinnati Bengals, giving him a three-year, $36 million dollar contract with $15 million guaranteed. At 35 Whitworth will be the team's oldest player, but he will offer experience, stabilize the offensive line and protecting Jared Goff's blind side. Whitworth is coming off back-to-back pro bowl seasons and was a first team all-pro in 2015.

The team also addressed another major need, signing Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Woods to a five-year, $39 million dollar contract with $15 million guaranteed.

He will only be 25 at the start of the 2017 season, despite having played four years in the league. Woods has been the Bills No. 2 receiver behind Stevie Johnson and then Sammy Watkins and is known for his good running blocking, route running and reliable hands. The team also signed former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray to compete with Sean Mannion for the backup job.

Players that the Rams let go

The Rams released two starters from last year's team, center Tim Barnes and tight end Lance Kendricks, who was the second longest tenured player on the team. They also released rotational defensive end Eugene Sims. Fellow defensive end William Hayes got traded, along with a 7th round selection (No. 233) to the Miami Dolphins for a sixth round selection (No. 206).

These moves make the team thin at defensive line, especially after Ethan Westbrooks got arrested, but offloading these players opened up almost $16 million in cap room.

Seldom used backup running back Trey Watts and AWOL backup running back Tre Mason were also released.
