Two teams have been named as the early contenders to land Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
A frontrunner could be emerging as the Los Angeles Rams try to trade away cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
A new report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler on SportsCenter mentioned the Detroit Lions as the team to watch.
“This could be a hot market on the trade front. The Rams are talking calls here, so I’ve talked to some teams this weekend to see what’s going on here and the Detroit Lions come up fairly often,” Fowler said. “It’s just a reasonable potential fit because Brad Holmes, the G.M. there, was with the Rams for a long time, he knows Ramsey’s game, they need cornerback help. …”
Fowler added another team as well:
“Las Vegas Raiders need help there, so Ramsey, with his skillset, only 28 years old, even though he’s due $17 million should have some suitors.”
Ramsey started all 17 games for the Rams in 2022, finishing with four interceptions while also forcing two fumbles, and being named a Pro Bowl replacement for Eagles star Darius Slay.
With the Rams looking to begin a rebuild after a 5-12 season, trading Ramsey could clear up to $17 million off their books.
