The Los Angeles Rams appear to be rebuilding their team on the fly, moving on from several key players from their Super Bowl-winning team.
Los Angeles reportedly traded Jalen Ramsey to the Dolphins and released Leonard Floyd to open up cap space moving forward.
As the Rams roster continues to change, their star players will have to adjust to the change happening around them.
On Tuesday, wide receiver Cooper Kupp said goodbye to his two former teammates on social media.
“Going to miss practicing with [Floyd] and [Ramsey], but never going to forget all the battles we went into together,” Kupp tweeted, “Iron sharpens iron.”

Iron sharpens iron.

Kupp and Ramsey were together for 3.5 years in Los Angeles, while the wide receiver played with Floyd for three consecutive seasons.
The Rams Super Bowl championship season in 2021 does not happen without those three players on the team.
Los Angeles finished 5–12 last year just one year removed from a 12–5 record in their Super Bowl-winning season, and the team clearly feels it needs to look towards the future for the first time in a long time.
