If you’re surprised, you shouldn’t be. Gurley is already one of the most accomplished Rams running backs in history. Even with the talk regarding his knee, I still believe he adds to his legacy as a Ram.

Gurley is already 6th all-time in Rams rushing yards in just four seasons. So far he has played a total of 58 games accumulating 4,547 yards rushing and 46 touchdowns while also adding 1,883 receiving yards and 10 more touchdowns. Gurley led the NFL in rushing touchdowns in 2017 and 2018.

Gurley¬† already has plenty of accolades, earning: 2015 Rookie of the Year, 2017 Offensive Player of the Year, named to three Pro Bowls and three All-Pro selections. At age 24, he has already led his team to Super Bowl LIII appearance just two years after a 4-12 record. Many place Ezekiel Elliot and Le’veon Bell above Gurley, some even list Saquon Barkley as a superior back at times. Gurley deserves more respect. By the end of his career, Gurley could be the best running back in franchise history barring in mind he remains somewhat healthy.
