How close were Rams to trading for Christian McCaffrey?

The Los Angeles Rams didn’t go all-in for Christian McCaffrey the way they did with Matthew Stafford and Jalen Ramsey, but they did make a push to acquire the All-Pro running back.

And according to Peter Schrager on the FOX Sports broadcast Sunday, their offer to the Panthers was similar to the 49ers.

The difference, per Schrager, was the 49ers offered a fourth-rounder in addition to a second and third, but the Rams could only give a fifth; they traded their 2023 fourth-rounder for Sony Michel.

Otherwise, the Rams also offered a second- and third-round pick for McCaffrey like San Francisco.

The Rams were clearly motivated to add running back help, but the 49ers wanted McCaffrey a little bit more. It’ll now be interesting to see if the Rams use those picks to target another position like outside linebacker or the offensive line.
