How bad was the Week 6 loss the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday? Well, the ripple effects are still ongoing, but event has already sent a shockwave through the NFL as the Los Angeles Rams have traded cornerback Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens, in exchange for inside linebacker Kenny Young:

This is a bit strange because when you add this trade with the injury to cornerback Aqib Talib, the Rams’ secondary is suddenly a ghost town.

Young is 24 years-old and a former UCLA player. He was a fourth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Again, this is a big head scratcher. This could be a set-up for another move, as the Rams could very well be trying to clear up space to add someone in the secondary. Or did CB Troy Hill play himself into a starting position for the rest of the season?

The Rams have already traded for OL Austin Corbett today, so things are very lively in the front offices in Thousand Oaks right now.

Trading Peters saves the Rams nearly $6m in cap space, $400k of which will be offset by acquiring Young.
