So this one might seem a bit crazy, but that’s what makes it worth covering.
In his recent piece over at Bleacher Report, Kristopher Knox listed one player from each of the 32 clubs that they should consider trading. For the Rams, that player is cornerback jalen Ramsey. But to Knox, he sees some life in that scenario.
“Would the Los Angeles Rams be making a questionable decision if they traded a player they only recently acquired? Possibly,” says Knox. “However, they have to at least consider flipping cornerback Jalen Ramsey because of the potential value involved. He would bring multiple first-round picks in return, and the Rams don’t have the cap space needed to sign him to a long-term deal.”
Right now, the Rams may be forced to make a move when looking at that little number underneath “cap space.” If they aren’t able to give him the money he desires - and remember, he once backed up a Brinks truck to training camp to make a point - then the Rams may have to franchise-tag him or lose him after having the stud defender for less than two seasons.
In the nine games he played in last season, Ramsey picked off a single pass, broke up four more, and forced a fumble.
This team will have to decide between keeping one of the best cornerbacks in the game, or using him to get a bounty of picks to help establish other areas that need some reinforcement.
