LA Rams NFL Trades NFL Rumors

NFL rumors report that both the Jets and Giants are selling talented players. The LA Rams must push both teams hard for trades.

The LA Rams team roster is very close on defense, very close on offense, and generally improving on special teams. But the question today is, will it be enough?  After all, the durability of the LA Rams roster to hold up over the remaining ten games is unknown. So what must the LA Rams do? Well, the trick in each season is to continue to look for ways to improve the team’s roster.

In most cases, the Rams’ interest to add value to their roster is in direct conflict with the wishes of 31 other NFL teams to add value to their rosters. But right now, that is not the case with two NFL teams in New York.  The Rams want to win now.  Both New York teams are in the process of shedding today’s talent for future draft picks.  Both have young quarterbacks, albeit I don’t believe the Jets believe Sam Darnold is their future franchise quarterback.  Both teams need help on the offensive line. And both teams have some curiously valuable pieces in the right settings.

2022 picks will work

Unfortunately, the LA Rams have tapped out for a significant portion of their valuable draft picks for the 2021 NFL Draft.  As of now, the Rams have traded their first and fourth-round picks to the Jacksonville Jaguars for CB Jalen Ramsey. In addition, the team had traded their 2021 fifth-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for interior offensive lineman Austin Corbett.

But the recent deals by teams indicate that they are willing to wait for any return on draft picks.   In some cases, trades now reap draft picks in 2022. So that is certainly an option for the LA Rams. So there is a way if the Rams have interest in players. So now it’s up to the Rams to find valuable veterans on the rosters of either the Jets or Giants and make a deal. So let’s see what we can uncover.
