That was the day the Los Angeles Rams decided enough wasn’t enough. After already trading for star CB Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs, they identified CB Aqib Talib as another potential star to add to Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips’ defense, though he wouldn’t cost nearly as much. The Denver Broncos and Rams worked out a trade for the eccentric yet nearly legendary corner, and that only cost the Rams a measly fifth-round pick.
Talib is a Super Bowl champion (Super Bowl 50), a five-time pro bowler, a two-time All-Pro, and simply one of the most productive (and entertaining) corners to play this game.
The Rams are prepared to face-off against Talib’s former employer, and the dependable veteran will play a big part in helping the Rams achieve the ultimate goal in Super Bowl 53.
