Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, reports that there’s currently “no update” regarding contract extensions for Rams HC Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead.
- Although, Florio’s source did say that there is still hope that they can get agreements in place with the two men sooner than later.
- Florio adds that there isn’t a Week-1 deadline to get extensions in place.
Last we heard, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Rams were “trying and expecting” to sign Fisher and Snead to extensions before the start of the regular season. Schefter added that it was likely the Rams would be able to get agreements in place for the two of them.
Both Fisher and Snead are entering the final year of their respective contracts.
The idea with extending Fisher’s contract is that the team would prevent him from being a lame-duck coach. Also, with the team relocating to Los Angeles this year, it would give them time to settle in without a major shakeup on top of what they’re already dealing with in regards to the move.
Fisher has experience being in charge of a team relocating, as he was the Oilers head coach when they moved to Tennessee and became the Titans.
Since taking the job in 2012, Fisher has led the Rams to a record of 27-36 (43 percent), which includes four straight seasons of less than eight wins.
We’ll have more regarding a potential extension for Fisher as the news is available.
