Taco Charlton could provide the Los Angeles Rams with another weapon to work with on the defensive side of the football.
Despite the Los Angeles Rams having a strong enough roster to potentially make another run at Super Bowl 54 this season, there’s always room for improvement in certain areas, especially if it happens to be on defense with a player such as Taco Charlton.
Back in 2017, the Dallas Cowboys felt confident enough in using a first-round pick on the former Michigan star after looking at the kind of career Charlton put together with the Wolverines.
Instead, Charlton has been viewed as a bust by many in Dallas when looking at his lack of impact on the defensive side of the football, and it looks the Cowboys were unable to find a trade partner with the 2019 season in full swing, meaning the defensive end is available for teams.
With that being said, it’s always fun to connect the Rams to these kinds of players since despite the struggles on another team, a fresh start could help bring out the best in a player like Charlton.
Take a look at Dante Fowler Jr. from last season for example after Los Angeles had nothing to lose in bringing the former first-round pick on board after the Jacksonville Jaguars decided to trade the defender, yet now he’s playing a key role on defense.
Plus, if all goes well between Fowler and the Rams over the next few months, the former Florida star could be in a great position to earn a potential long-term deal from the team at some point down the road.
Charlton obviously still has a long way to go when it comes to potentially being on the same level of impact as Fowler or most of the members from the Rams’ defense, but this could be an intriguing option.
With the right coaching alongside Wade Phillips on top of the opportunity to play with one of the best the game has to offer in Aaron Donald, if Los Angeles were to help bring out the best in Charlton, why wouldn’t they at least consider the possibility?
Not to mention, with Charlton only turning 25 in November, the young defender still has plenty of time to turn his career around, whether it would happen to be with the Rams if they were interested or some other team.
