Rams Trade Will Witherspoon. WHA?!?


As the trade deadline neared, the Rams traded their solid linebacker Will Witherspoon to the Philadelphia Eagles for rookie WR Brandon Gibson and an undisclosed draft pick.  Although I understand the Rams need help at the wide receiver position, I am struggling to understand why they would trade away one of their more solid defensive players for a rookie receiver that is yet to play a down.

When I saw the update “Rams trade Witherspoon.”  I thought we would possibly have received a somewhat established receiver, but I guess when you are a team that understands it won’t be making the playoffs this year, getting even younger isn’t as crazy as it sounds.

Lets get some feedback on this trade, do you feel it was a huge mistake?
