2. Kayvon Webster
Speaking of Wade Phillips reuniting with former players, many questioned if the Los Angeles Rams made the right move with the signing of Kayvon Webster, mainly due to the fact he only has two career starts from the four years spent with the Denver Broncos. But when hearing the high praise for Webster from some of his former Broncos teammates who believe he’s ready to become an effective full-time starter, fans should have more faith in the decision to bring the cornerback on board.
The Rams had their eyes set on Webster for quite some time, and to see them lock him up to a two-year deal during his first official visit in free agency shows they were willing to go the extra mile. The last thing Los Angeles wanted to see happen was Webster consider all options with other interested teams, so it was good to see them cut right to the chase with this signing.
Webser has been waiting for that opportunity to prove himself worthy of being a full-time starter in the NFL, and now that he gets the chance to play alongside the league’s highest-paid cornerback in Trumaine Johnson, Phillips’ defense is already showing plenty of potential. Also, Webster has an upper advantage compared to most free agents since he’s already familiar with the defense since he spent the last two years working with Phillips in Denver.
