Rams Answer Stacy’s Passive-Aggressive Demands With Trade To Jets

Seriously, how great is social media? The global online phenomenon known for bringing people closer together has played a pivotal role in tearing third-year tailback Zac Stacy and the St. Louis Rams apart.

NFL-Rumors-5-Potential-Landing-Spots-For-Zac-StacyOkay, maybe ‘pivotal’ is sensationalising just a little bit. After all, any NFL front office that based its actions solely on its’ players’ tweets wouldn’t be much of a franchise, but the point still stands: Stacy will wear the hunter green in 2015.

The move comes a mere two days after Stacy simply tweeted “Yikes” following the Rams’ acquisition of Georgia RB Todd Gurley in the recently-concluded draft.

Gurley, arguably the most exciting prospect in the country, was surprised to see himself drafted in the top ten after a brutal ACL injury last season. His role with the team won’t become completely known until opening weekend, but he should add explosiveness to a young and talented Rams core on offense.

As for Stacy, his trip to the east coast won’t be without its challenges. He joins a unit of good-but-not-great backs in Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Stevan Ridley and former Ram Daryl Richardson for what should be one of the more intriguing training camp battles over the next couple of months.

Stacy was a pocket rocket of pure energy and efficacy in 2013, racking up seven touchdowns and a touch under 1000 yards in his first season, but was good for just 293 yards and one score last year.

The trade was made only for a Jets’ seventh-rounder, which the Rams spent on Brice Hager, a linebacker out of Baylor.
