Rumor I: What do we know so far? Well, we know that the Rams rumors start with the potential imminent trade of veteran WR DeSean Jackson. Not only is Jackson still productive, but his contract is very team-friendly and incentive-based, ensuring that the team pays for production. Since he has proven the ability to strike instantly in his game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks, he could net a pretty good return.
Rumor II: Another scenario is more blogger-driven than word-on-the-street, but Bleacher Report’s Brent Sobleski believes that the Cinncinatti Bengals could and should trade for LA Rams offensive lineman Bobby Evans to help stabilize their offensive line woes before the trade deadline. That scenario could net the Rams an early Day 3 draft pick.
Rams’ players traded away scenarios: Since the trade deadline can prompt a team to act in either direction and with the Rams shedding players for salary-cap space, we listed several additional players who could be on the move at the NFL Trade Deadline. None of these players have been mentioned in any trade rumors, but they could all be part of a package or traded individually if the team needs additional salary cap space freed up.
Okay, so the only piece that remains, and is likely the reason you have read this article to this point, is what or who might the LA Rams hope to acquire to help out on defense? The Rams offense seems to be in pretty good shape, but there is always a chance for a team with Sean McVay at the helm to load up on offensive players.
Right now, the positions most often cited in forums and social media are the inside linebacker position, cornerback, and edge rusher.
