Jalen Ramsey: Dolphins team is similar to 2021 Super Bowl champion Rams team

Jalen Ramsey says that Tyreek Hill will win Offensive Player of the Year, like Cooper Kupp did for Rams in 2021

Jalen Ramsey is having the type of season he was hoping for when the L.A. Rams traded him to the Miami Dolphins early in the 2023 offseason, as his team is in the running for the top seed in the AFC and certainly a part of the Super Bowl conversation. If that happens, Ramsey will be playing in the Super Bowl twice in three years and for two different teams. Ramsey as on The Pat McAfee Show on Monday and was asked if the 2023 Dolphins remind him of the 2021 Rams that won the Super Bowl championship and the three-time All-Pro cornerback concurred that the two teams are very much alike.

Ramsey also compared Tyreek Hill to Cooper Kupp, noting that in his opinion, the Dolphins receiver has already won 2023 Offensive Player of the Year, just like Kupp did in 2021.

“100%, I see a lot of similarities. It’s crazy cause I actually try not to compare too much because I like to just really enjoy the experience in the moment when it’s right there in front of me. I don’t want to think about the past or look too ahead in the future. I really try to enjoy the present but yeah obviously if you look on paper and you see this team, and you see that Rams team that we had there’s definitely a lot of similarities. We’ll have Offensive Player of the Year again. Hopefully we’ve have the MVP, I think we got two guys that are deserving of that. We’ve got a lot of All-Pro and Pro Bowlers on this team. And a lot of guys who are going to get paid next year too.”

Should Tyreek Hill be considered for the 2023 MVP award? Ramsey certainly thinks so, let us know what you believe in the comments or if it has to go to a quarterback every year.

As far as the Dolphins winning a Super Bowl like the Rams did, Miami still needs to make noise in the playoffs for the first time since their last postseason win in 2000. The Dolphins haven’t reached the AFC Championship since 1992 and haven’t been to the Super Bowl since 1984.

But they have the number one offense in the NFL and with Ramsey back from injury, the defense has been among the best in the league too. Will Ramsey win two Super Bowls in three years with two different teams?

That’s what he was hoping for.
