The Los Angeles Rams are coming off a bye week and will face the San Francisco 49ers at home on Sunday. However, the week off did not bring about any additional clarity on Los Angeles’ trade deal with running back Cam Akers.
Sean McVay Reveals Cam Akers Availability Betting Odds
The NFL trade period is November 1 at 1 p.m. PT. The Rams would be better off trading Akers for something valuable than keeping him with a team with whom he appears to have unspecified disagreements, or vice versa.
As the date gets closer, McVay has yet to provide a clear answer on Akers‘ accessibility for Sunday.
“I would say it’s more than likely that he would not, but I don’t want to pigeonhole myself into kind of speaking in absolutes,” McVay said. “But I’d say if you were to go to Vegas and you’re betting odds, it’s less likely that he would be available.”
The Rams’ game against the Niners on Sunday could be too close for comfort, with only two days to come to an agreement after failing to do so for the past two weeks.
However, the fact that McVay did not say “no” when asked about Akers’ accessibility on Sunday could indicate that positive dialogue has continued, despite the fact that the trade desire appears to be mutual.
It’s now or never for the Rams to make something happen. Things should heat up in the coming days before the Rams take on the Niners at 1:25 p.m. PT on Sunday.
