Who should LA Rams target from each NFL team at Trade Deadline
13 – Green Bay Packers
The LA Rams could always use more help in the secondary, right? While Green Bay Packers defensive back Rasul Douglas won’t challenge for a starting role, he is savvy enough to be a positive contributor to the Rams secondary.
Douglas is a 6-foot-2 209-pound defensive back who is in his fifth NFL season and on his third NFL team. Well, his fifth team if you want to be technical, but he never stepped foot onto the field for either the Las Vegas Raiders or the Houston Texans. Throughout his career, he has not started often, just 30 of the 62 games in which he has played.
That is a bit surprising because he has played effective pass defense, allowing a career completion rate of just 63 percent. When you consider that with his size, you might expect that he would see more playing time, and start more frequently.
Douglas may not be playing 100 percent of the defensive snaps, but he can contribute to the special teams’ play as well. He is always willing to do what it takes to help the team. The Rams could always use depth in their secondary, and Douglas would be a good depth player. He is flexible enough to find ways to help in multiple roles.
