ound tender on restricted free agent Cory Littleton.The linebacker is free to negotiate with other teams http://www.theramslockerroom.com/authentic-ramik-wilson-jersey , but the Rams have a chance to match any offer sheet and would receive a second-round draft choice if they chose to let him walk.Littleton became a full-time starter when the Rams traded Alec Ogletree to the Giants.He started all 16 games last season and made 125 tackles, four sacks, three interceptions and 13 pass breakups. Littleton earned his first Pro Bowl.Litteton, 25, has played all 48 games the past three seasons.Snead said the Rams have tendered running back Malcolm Brown, defensive back Blake Countess and cornerback Troy Hill at their original round. Brown has played 40 games since joining the Rams as an undrafted free agent; Countess, a sixth-round pick, has played 37 games, with four starts, for the Rams the past three seasons; Hill, an undrafted free agent Dante Fowler Jr Jersey , has appeared in 40 games with 14 starts the past three seasons.Los Angeles also tendered five of its six exclusive rights free agents — defensive end Morgan Fox, cornerback Kevin Peterson, receiver KhaDarel Hodge, cornerback Dominique Hatfield, and returner JoJo Natson.Both Fox and Peterson spent last season on injured reserve with knee injuries. Natson took over as the Rams’ returner after former returner Pharoh Cooper was injured. Hodge and Hatfield played mostly on special teams during the 2018 season. Jon Gruden knows he sometimes went over the top in his praise of quarterbacks in his old job as an analyst at ESPN.It seemed like any time a quarterback went to "Gruden's QB Camp" or was picked in the draft, Gruden was always full of compliments. The praise for Kansas City's second-year star Patrick Mahomes is on an even different level."His overall skill set is sickening. It really is," Gruden said. "He's double-jointed. He can throw the ball from any platform possible. Running to his left, fading backward. He can get out of trouble. I compliment everybody, I've been accused of that, but this guy has off-the-chart arm talent. Skill level is unbelievable."He has a playing style that reminds me of (Brett) Favre. He's a young Favre. I think that's why Andy Reid went and got him. He won't quit on any play. He makes a lot of plays when there's nothing there. I don't have time to talk about him anymore."Gruden now must devise a plan to slow Mahomes when his Oakland Raiders (2-9) host the Chiefs (9-2) on Sunday in what appears to be a major mismatch.Led by Mahomes' 37 touchdown passes 鈥?the third most ever through 11 games 鈥?the Chiefs have been a nearly unstoppable force on offense. Coach Andy Reid's squad ranks second in the NFL with 404 points and is on pace to become the first team since at least 1960 to average more than 7.0 yards per play.But everything hasn't been perfect for Mahomes, who committed five turnovers in Kansas City's last game Nicholas Scott Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , a 54-51 loss to the Rams on Nov. 19."Every experience, bad or good, you have to learn from," Mahomes said. "You take the positives. We had a lot of successful plays and successful things happen in that game, but you have to find ways to win them in the end."Here are some other things to watch:EB'S BACK, MAYBEChiefs safety Eric Berry returned to the practice field this week for the first time since the early weeks of training camp, when he became sidelined by a heel injury. But considering Berry has not played at all since August, it is unlikely he will be available for Kansas City's trip to Oakland."It's a great thing to see him back healthy," Reid said. "This is killing him to watch. He loves to play. It tears him up not to be out there, but at the same time we have to do it smart."FAST START, SLOW FINISHOne thing the Raiders have done well this year is start games fast. Their 34 points on the opening drive rank fifth best in the NFL this season. What's happened after that has been the problem. Oakland has the third-worst offense the rest of the game Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , averaging just 1.32 points per drive after that.STREAKING JONESChiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones was the AFC's defensive player of the month, another line to a resume that could land him a big contract extension this offseason. Jones has nine sacks this season, including at least one each of the past seven weeks. He had a pair of sacks against the Cardinals and the Rams prior to the bye week, and he had a season-high three tackles for loss in Los Angeles.DANGEROUS RETURNSOakland was burned last week by a poorly placed punt by rookie Johnny Townsend that led to a 70-yard touchdown return by Baltimore's Cyrus Jones. Townsend, a fifth-round pick, has struggled this year, ranking 30th out of 32 qualifying punters in net average (37.7 yards), last in gross average (43.5 yards), and last in percentage of punts downed inside the 20-yard line (18.4 percent). That could be an issue against Tyreek Hill, who leads the NFL with four punt return TDs since entering the league in 2016."We have to do a better job than we did last week," Gruden said. "The one punt return we've given up Nicholas Scott Jersey nfl draft , we didn't hit our landmark. We gave them a low hanging punt that gave him a two-way go, and that's hard to defend. If we do that against this guy, we'll have very little chance to win this game. This guy is really unique. Tyreek Hill, he's a unique skill set. You have to limit his opportunities every way you can."REUNION WEEKThe relationship between Gruden and Reid goes back decades to when they spent three years together as offensive assistants on Mike Holmgren's staff in Green Bay from 1992-94. That's where the two really started to build the foundation of the offenses they'd eventually run for years as successful head coaches in the NFL."We were both young and we were able to learn a ton from a great head coach," Reid recalled. "Jon and I spent a lot of time together, along with Steve Mariucci, we were the youngest guys on the staff. We all kind of bonded and did our thing. We did a lot of the go-fer work, which we loved. Great learning experience and great foundation to build on."AP Sports Writer Dave Skretta contributed to this report
