The Rams on Wednesday reached deals with OLB Mark Barron and DE William Hayes that make them look like 2016 starters. Barron got $45 million on a 5-year deal, with $20 million guaranteed. HC Jeff Fisher said after releasing MLB James Laurinaitis last month that he planned to move OLB Alec Ogletree inside and keep Barron at the weak-side spot he played after Ogletree got hurt last year. Barron should be an IDP stud in any league that keeps a DB designation on him. He should see a switch to LB in many cases, though, which will ding his value a bit. Hayes got a $17.5 million, 3-year deal with $10 million guaranteed and another $3.5 million available in incentives. He'll turn 31 in May and thus might not work as a long-term starter, but he's the favorite to take over Chris Long's vacated left DE job. Look for Hayes to at least match his career high of 7 sacks from 2012, his 1st season with the Rams.

Rams DL Greg Gaines (hand) and S Taylor Rapp (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. We'll check their statuses Sunday morning.
Rams LB Ernest Jones (illness), CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) and OLB Von Miller (ankle) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Titans. HC Sean McVay said Friday that he expects Jones and Ramsey to play, according to the team's website. Miller, on the other hand, will be a game-time decision. The Sunday night kickoff means most IDP lineups can't wait for that decision.
Rams HC Sean McVay said Monday that he expects DT Sebastian Joseph-Day to be ready for Sunday's game against the Titans after he missed Week 8 with a chest injury, the team website reports. CB Darious Williams will return to practice this week as well, opening his 3-week window to return to the active roster. He missed the past 3 games while on IR with an ankle sprain.
