LA Rams DB Tyrique McGhee 2nd infraction results in 5 game suspension
At a time when the LA Rams could truly use all hands on deck, particularly anyone with skillsets in the secondary, defensive back Tyrique McGhee is making some bad decisions. Hey, it happens. Not everyone is cut out for the social, physical, and mental discipline required to attain and maintain a career in professional football.
Life in the NFL is not the glorified role that we have all imagined that it might be. It’s not just enjoying a wealthy lifestyle eight months out of the year. It’s dedication. A complete commitment of lifestyle to improve and become the best athlete and professional football player in the nation. For players who are in the NFL secondary, they are constantly under the microscope for speed, agility, position, and production.
It’s a constant pressure cooker playing cornerback. Whether or not that player becomes an NFL star, the work and dedication remain the same and take a similar toll.
The LA Rams will be in the market for help at cornerback in the draft. The team lost a versatile and talented cornerback to free agency when Troy Hill signed on with the Cleveland Browns. The Rams should know that they will more than likely lose cornerback Darious Williams in the 2022 NFL Free Agency market. They didn’t sign up any help in free agency, and the team has just six draft picks to shop with at the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft.
Right now, the Rams would probably have room for three defensive backs at a minimum for the 2021 NFL season. But, that number could change pretty quickly. Why? Why indeed.
