Sean McVay - Rams 'headed' toward trading RB Cam Akers - ESPN
LOS ANGELES -- Rams head coach Sean McVay said general manager Les Snead has spoken with "a handful of teams" about a trade for running back Cam Akers, and "that's the direction that we're headed."
Akers was a healthy scratch on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, something McVay called a "coach's decision" that was made in the "best interest" of the team.
Akers, a 2020 second-round pick, is in the final season of his rookie contract with the Rams. He had 22 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown in Los Angeles' season-opening win.
