The Los Angeles Rams are a professional American football team in Los Angeles, California. Originally known as the Cleveland Rams, and then later as the St. Louis Rams, they are currently in the Western Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The team has won two NFL Championships and one Super Bowl. Their starting quarterback is Jared Goff.

The Rams played in Cleveland, Ohio from 1936 to 1945, before moving to Los Angeles, California in 1946. The Rams stayed in Los Angeles until the 1995 season, when the team moved to St. Louis, Missouri and played there until 2015. In 2015, the team wanted to move back to Los Angeles. Stan Kroenke, the Rams owner, met with other NFL owners to approve the move. The owners approved the Rams' move to Los Angeles with a 30–2 margin. The Rams returned to Los Angeles at the beginning of the 2016 season.[6][7]

On May 31, 2009, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the Rams were up for sale.[8] The sale price was not known, but Forbes magazine's estimated that the Rams' value was $929 million.[9]
