It’s a long shot for Los Angeles Rams CB Kevin Peterson.
In fact, saying he won’t make the Rams’ 2019 53-man roster wouldn’t be an incorrect position to take. In a world where anything can happen, and almost nothing is a diamond absolute, this seems like a pretty concrete fortune.
Peterson is a long shot because the Rams are packed with talent at the defensive back position and he’s just missed out on time. Two years ago, Peterson was the victim of the numbers game with a position group far less talented than this year’s squad, and last year he missed the entire season after going to injured reserve having torn his ACL in the first game of the preseason.
As if it wasn’t hard enough to battle top tier talent in his position group, Peterson will also face the issues of returning from that ACL injury. It’s been nearly a year since then, and I’m sure he’s had plenty of time to rehab and gain his strength back (or close to completely back). But returning to the game is not as simple as getting back on the bike.
Chances of making the roster (0.5/10)
We’ll see if the flat circle of time offers him a way out this year.
