DB Troy Hill to Bills

The LA Rams have some areas where the team has questions. But one such area of the Rams where the talent is more common than playing opportunities right now is in the defensive backfield.  For the moment, the LA Rams are looking for ways to pay All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey to play for the team for many years to come.  His teammates are solid players as well, as the team had the opportunity to give both Troy Hill and Darious Williams starting opportunities in 2019.

Starting cornerbacks in 2020 are a rarity. they come at a very expensive cost, and most NFL teams continue to search for talent in the defensive backfield long after the season begins. With that in mind, the Rams have a bit of a marketable opportunity right now.  With the team boasting a solid group of defensive backs who have proven to be successful in the NFL, why now allow the team to share the wealth, and in return look for a significant draft pick upgrade for 2021?

Billy goats

This is the year for the Buffalo Bills, say many NFL pundits. While they have what it takes in many areas, the Bills still need help defending the pass. After all, the AFC East is not just a race to beat the New England Patriots any longer, so defending the pass to overcome the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins would be a wise investment. Wise indeed if the Bills hope to be the Goats of their division.

In this exchange, the LA Rams emerge with the Buffalo Bills 2021 first-round pick. The Bills get a starting cornerback in Troy Hill, plus a third-round compensatory pick in 2021, ensuring that they will be able to add a talented player next year.
