The LA Rams started trade deadline week off just like they have in recent years: by setting the damn example. On Monday, the Rams acquired eight-time Pro Bowl edge rusher Von Miller from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a second and a third round pick in the 2022 draft. The trade was met positively by fans and more moves are expected because it didn’t cost LA much financially.
On Tuesday, the Rams are expected to either trade or set free wide receiver DeSean Jackson, but Les Snead assuredly isn’t finished.
To keep track of not only Snead’s moves, but also the rest of the league and potentially the Arizona Cardinals and the NFC West, we’ll keep a running tally of the big time news, transactions, and rumors that go on throughout the day on Tuesday and leading into the 1 PM PT deadline this afternoon.
Talk about what happened, what didn’t happen, and what you want to happen right here and below!
