Because of concerns that are “bigger than” football, Rams head coach Sean McVay has decided to remove rookie quarterback Stetson Bennett off the active roster. McVay made the announcement.
Fans are taken aback by the decision, but McVay has been tight-lipped about the specifics of what is going on with the rookie picked in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
In the course of a news conference, McVay made the following statement: “Out of respect for him and the situation, I’m going to leave all of the specifics and particulars in-house.”
According to McVay, contrary to the initial supposition, Bennett’s departure from the roster is not connected to a recent minor shoulder injury that he sustained. This information comes after McVay made this clarification. Instead, it would appear that the young quarterback is struggling with issues that have nothing to do with the game itself and have taken precedence.
“I want to be able to do that out of respect for that situation, so I’m not going to really have any follow-up information or anything that I’ll give in that regard,” she said. “That’s why I won’t give anything in that regard.” According to McVay.
McVay made it quite apparent that he thinks everyone can see the significance of maintaining the confidentiality of this subject.
“I really hope that you can please respect my wishes in regards to keeping that in-house,” he pleaded with them. “I am aware that you have a task to accomplish; yet, there are certain things that, in my opinion, are rather larger in scope and somewhat more significant. We want to keep it in-house out of respect for the particulars and the nuances, and that’s where I’d like it to stay, if you don’t mind, please.
During the preseason and during his excellent collegiate career, which includes winning back-to-back national championships at Georgia in 2021 and 2022, Stetson Bennett shown signs of potential, as can be seen in his impressive record.
Despite his obvious ability on the field, during the pre-draft process, he was arrested for public drunkenness, which raised concerns about his level of maturity and his preparedness for the National Football League.
