The Los Angeles Rams traded linebacker Kenny Young to the Denver Broncos on Monday ahead of the trade deadline on November 2nd. The trade sent Young and a 2024 seventh-round pick to Denver and in return the Los Angeles Rams received a sixth-round pick in 2024.

Broncos have eight injured LBs, including six on injured reserve.
Young was enjoying one of his best years this season with the Rams. He had two sacks, one of which came against Tom Brady in Week 3, and 27 solo tackles after seven games. Young was a part of the Marcus Peters trade in 2019 and has been with the team ever since. In 2020, he had a pick-six off of Cam Newton that he returned for 80 yards and 52 combined tackles that helped vault Los Angeles to the number one defense that year.

Knowing Les Snead and the Rams it can be expected that more moves will come following the trade. This past week LA restructured Rob Havenstein’s contract to make room for additional cap space.
