It’s been reported by Broncos Insider Troy Renck that the Los Angeles Rams have shown a strong interest in Broncos’ free agent cornerback Kayvon Webster. The team is currently trying to arrange a visit with the corner.
I know the #Rams have serious interest in Kayvon Webster.That could be good landing spot. His teammates believe he could be a starter in NFL— Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) March 11, 2017
It makes sense that the Rams have shown strong interest in a player that has worked with defensive coordinator Wade Phillips before. On the Broncos, Webster was the 4th man in a deep rotation and if he values a starting position, the Rams figure to be a solid landing spot.
If the Rams are able to acquire Webster, the biggest question is what type of player they’d be getting. Renck has the answer to that question.
Nothing brewing yet with Kayvon Webster. He will help a team. Underrrated. An impact on special teams who can cover in secondary.— Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) March 11, 2017
Signing Webster wouldn’t necessarily mean the Rams would be moving on from Trumaine Johnson; nor will it mean that the cornerback position is solidified. But the 26-year old does flash potential, and adding him could allow the Rams to focus on other positions early in the upcoming draft. His signing would also give the Rams a player on defense that has experience with Phillips’ playbook.
The Philadelphia Eagles and the Miami Dolphins have shown interest in Webster, which means he might not come cheap if at all. But, assuming Renck and Webster’s teammates assessment is accurate, he’s definitely the type of player the Rams should take a chance on.
