Trade scenario I:

The first suggested trade scenario involving the LA Rams is going in the wrong direction.  Here, he suggests that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade WR Scott Miller to the LA Rams. This trade is fraught with difficulties, and here’s why.

Miller is in the last year of his rookie contract, which is often a situation that the Rams front office seeks if they have interest in trading for a player. Miller has had mixed results for the Buccaneers, but over the course of his three previous NFL seasons, he has caught 51 passes for 739 yards and four touchdowns.

Those are hardly the type of production that would warrant a trade offer from the LA Rams, who are currently so thick at the wide receiver position that the team is likely strategizing how to reconfigure their 53-man roster to allow the team to painlessly carry eight wide receivers right now.

Kay’s argument is that the Rams will need to add high-end depth to the locker room. Oh really? The Rams have Cooper Kupp, Allen Robinson, Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell, Ben Skowronek, Brandon Powell, Jacob Harris, and Lance McCutcheon. All have a role in the LA Rams offense, and all have gotten high praise from LA Rams head coach Sean McVay throughout the offseason.

The Rams have no need, interest, or casual whim that would compel them to offer as little as a six-pack and a bag of chips for Miller. Other NFL teams are in hot pursuit of wide receiver help, like the Baltimore Ravens or the Green Bay Packers. But for the LA Rams? No how, no way, no weo.

This trade scenario’s grade: F-
