Rams finish 20th in 2024 NFLPARams finish 20th in 2024 NFLPA

Rams finish 20th Last year, the Rams ranked 25th out of the 32 teams, and they didn’t improve much this year. According to the NFLPA’s results, the Rams finished 20th in this year’s rankings, receiving particularly poor grades for the food/cafeteria, nutritionist/dietician and the training/weight rooms.

Sean McVay helped lift the Rams’ overall grade by earning a grade of ‘A’, fourth-best among all head coaches in the NFL. The Rams’ strength coaches also ranked 10th with a grade of ‘A-‘.

A big reason for the Rams’ poor grades is the fact that they have a temporary facility in Thousand Oaks, though they’ll be moving to another temporary location in Woodland Hills this year. Players don’t believe that new location will be much of an upgrade.The Rams provide a family room at the stadium and daycare on gameday, but they still only rank 22nd out of 32 teams.

Players don’t view the Rams’ locker room very highly, though this is presumably in reference to their facility in Thousand Oaks and not the locker room at SoFi Stadium. Only 74% of players feel the locker room is big enough and 79% feel they have enough room in their individual lockers.

Players are not overly happy with the weight room that the Rams provide, which is at their temporary Thousand Oaks facility.Rams finish 20th in 2024 NFLPA64

  • Players feel that they have average quality equipment in their weight room (29th overall) 
  • Players think they do not have enough space in their weight room (27th Overall) 
  • A majority of Rams players believe their facility is no better than offsite locations where they could train. Only five other teams in the league have similarly poor impressions of their own weight room.

    The Kansas City Chiefs ranked dead last in the league in ownership, per the NFLPA survey. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt graded out with the lowest ranking apparently because of his unwillingness to invest in team facilities.

    ESPN’s Brooke Pryor explained NFLPA president JC Tretter’s evaluation of the 59-year old owner.

    “For example, Tretter says, the team was promised a renovated locker room,” Pryor tweeted. “When they returned this season—after winning the Super Bowl—only new chairs were added. Players were told they ’went too far in the playoffs’ and they didn’t have time to renovate.”

    The Kansas City Star’s Jesse Newell relayed a similar sentiment from Tretter and quoted the NFLPA president: “I think there’s some frustration there in the room, ’We keep winning Super Bowls, and nothing’s coming back to us. There’s no priority on making our lives better.’”
