Rams pick up 5th year options on Peters, Gurley

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams have picked up their fifth-year contract options for 2019 on running back Todd Gurley and cornerback Marcus Peters.

The Rams announced their easiest decisions of the offseason Tuesday.

Gurley led the NFL in all-purpose yards as the league’s Offensive Player of the Year last season, thriving in new coach Sean McVay’s offense. He rushed for 1,305 yards and 13 touchdowns while catching 64 passes for 788 yards and six more scores.

The Rams acquired Peters from the Chiefs in February, and he is expected to start alongside fellow newcomer Aqib Talib. Peters earned two Pro Bowl selections and made 19 interceptions during his three seasons in Kansas City.
