2024 NFL Free Agency: John Simpson could benefit from Kevin Dotson’s new deal with Rams

Interior offensive line play is crucial for the success of any explosive NFL offense, and Ravens guard John Simpson could benefit from the huge money being spent on him in free agency.

The Rams opened things up on Sunday night, inking Kevin Dotson to a three-year, $48 million deal ahead of free agency.

His average of $16 million per year is much higher than many anticipated, and according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and Dan Graziano, it could push the ceiling up for Simpson and other offensive guards.

Simpson has developed from a practice squad member to a viable starting offensive guard after spending time with the Raiders and Ravens.

Simpson is PFF’s ninth-rated offensive line prospect entering free agency, and his 56.3 grade was ranked 49th out of 79 offensive guards.
