Los Angeles Rams CB Aqib Talib voted #53 on NFL’s Top 100 Players for 2018

New, comments

The Rams’ fourth player in the top 100 is another first-year Ram in the secondary.

Los Angeles Rams CB Aqib Talib was voted into the NFL Top 100 for 2018 at #53 as voted on by the players.

He’s the fourth Ram to be included in the list thus far:

  • #87: LT Andrew Whitworth
  • #79: CB Marcus Peters
  • #61: DL Ndamukong Suh

The Rams acquired Talib in a whirlwind offseason this year via trade for just a cost of a 2018 NFL Draft fifth-round pick. The addition of Talib and Peters offset the losses of CB Trumaine Johnson via free agency and CB Kayvon Webster.

Two Rams yet to make the list? Offensive Player of the Year in 2017 RB Just Todd Gurley and Defensive Player of the Year DL Aaron Donald who is a no-show at organized team activities again this year as he awaits a potential contract extension.

Congrats to Talib, and here’s hoping the Rams are able to get a season out of him that gets him into the top 50 next year.
