Rams announce contract extensions for Les Snead, Sean McVay through 2026

USA TODAY Sports

During training camp last month, Sean McVay confirmed he’d received a contract extension after an ESPN profile by Seth Wickersham noted that the Rams head coach had received a raise during the offseason.

At the time, McVay said he was waiting for the organization to announce his new deal at the same time as General Manager Les Snead — given that the two have been tied together since McVay was hired in 2017.

Now, that has come to fruition.

As Los Angeles gets set to begin defending its Super Bowl victory with a game against Buffalo, the Rams announced on Thursday that Snead and McVay have signed contract extensions through the 2026 season.

Snead has been with the organization since 2012, hired just after the team’s former head coach, Jeff Fisher. The Rams have compiled an 86-74-1 record in his 10-season tenure, going 55-26 with two Super Bowl appearances and one Super Bowl victory with McVay.

That Snead and McVay have received extensions is not really a surprise, since team COO Kevin Demoff said back in March that he expected both men to sign new contracts soon. Demoff called them “the architects of this run” and noted their “amazing working relationship.”

Snead and McVay reportedly had two years remaining on their former contracts.

  1. Snead will be the second highest paid GM in the league after Jerry Jones, proving once and for all that you actually DON’T get what you pay for.

  2. Remember that the Rams were coming off that five year stretch where they went 15-65, when Snead first got there.

    His method of roster building may not be everyone’s favourite, but it works. He has helped take the franchise from expansion team bad, to SB winner.

  3. I don’t have a problem with what the Bucs and Rams did, RE “win now.” Yeah things will probably suck 5 years from now but at least you got a ring out of it and were competitive for a few seasons. The NFL is cyclical, lots of ups and downs. It’s just a business and a game at the end of the day, why not try to risk it all for a chance to win?

  4. Sending my thoughts and prayers to Rams fans. Oh wait, I mean people who have followed the Rams for three years.

  5. Well deserved!!!!!!! After dealing with the Mike Martz curse for years only to have to deal with Jeff Fisher these last few years have been amazing. I love the all in – every year approach!

  6. 2026, isn’t that when they’d get a 1st round draft pick again? Never mind, Snead will trade it away for another late in their career player to play for them a couple of years.

  7. The salary cap void-year magic the Rams have been engaging in will come back to haunt the team right around the time when these new extensions are up.

  8. Rams will start 0-1. Stafford threw a game losing INT against San Fran and after winning 1 game after that they are now the dynasty? Give me a break – and as they say – That’s why the play the games.

  9. If Stafford’s elbow is a year long concern and he misses time, the Rams might miss the playoffs.
