Rams tender Ronnie Rivers as ERFA, keeping him for 2024

Ronnie Rivers will be back with the Rams in 2024. The team announced on Friday that Rivers has been tendered as an exclusive rights free agent, keeping him in the mix for next season.

As an ERFA, Rivers will get a one-year deal worth the minimum salary, so it essentially works out to being a futures contract like the one many practice squad players signed this winter.

Rivers cannot negotiate with other teams now that he’s been tendered, though it is possible for him to sign a new contract with the Rams.

Last season, Rivers carried the ball 32 times for 129 yards and also caught five passes for 22 yards. He became an exclusive rights free agent this offseason because he has fewer than three accrued seasons in the NFL.
