A recent report indicates the Los Angeles Rams are showing strong interest in former Denver Broncos conrnerback Kayvon Webster.
Thanks to the early signings of Andrew Whitworth and Robert Woods, the Los Angeles Rams were considered one of the winners from the first day of free agency, but the team still has a long way to go when it comes to filling other position needs. When it comes to certain players to keep an eye on over the next few days, former Denver Broncos cornerback Kayvon Webster is a name Rams fans may want to follow.
Broncos Insider Troy Renck pointed out late Friday how the Rams appear to have strong interest in the cornerback, which would seem like a great addition for Wade Phillips and company. Los Angeles recently placed the hefty franchise tag on Trumaine Johnson, but rumors have also been swirling about how the team is considering trade partners for the cornerback.
Even if Johnson does end up with a different team, that doesn’t mean the Rams still shouldn’t do everything in their power to bring Webster on board for the 2017 season. As Renck pointed out, there are plenty of current players on Denver that believe Webster has what it takes to be an NFL starter (only two career starts in four years), and joining a team like Los Angeles would provide the cornerback with an opportunity to make an immediate impact.
Not to mention, Phillips spent the last two seasons with the Broncos, which means Webster coming to the Rams would give him a chance to reunite with his former defensive coordinator. It’s only a matter of time before Webster does find a new home for the 2017 season, and hopefully Los Angeles makes a strong push to land the cornerback before it’s too late.
