On Thursday, the Los Angeles Rams and general manager Les Snead agreed to a contract extension, making him among the highest-paid GMs in all of the NFL. The Rams officially announced the extension for Snead as well as for head coach Sean McVay, taking them through the 2026 season.
The 51-year-old Snead has been the Rams’ GM since 2012. He signed an extension in 2019 that reportedly tied him to the team through the 2023 season. Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke said in the team’s press release: “As an organization we constantly strive to better ourselves every day. This requires selflessness, dedication and great leadership throughout Sean and Les personify this mindset. They have been crucial to many of our successes that transcend wins and losses. They epitomize the ‘We not me’ mantra that permeates the entire organization. Their extensions are well deserved. We look forward to many more exciting seasons at SoFi Stadium as Sean and Les continue to play meaningful roles within the organization and throughout the community.”
With Snead and McVay at the helm, the Rams have gone to the playoffs in four of the past five seasons. Since 2017, the Rams have won 55 regular-season games, third-most in the entire NFL.
