The Los Angeles Rams made its third trade on Tuesday. But this deal was the biggest deal of the three.
The Rams acquired Jalen Ramsey in a blockbuster deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ramsey gets his wish with this deal, as he had been seeking a trade for weeks now.
In fact, despite not playing in the past several games, Ramsey did not miss a single paycheck. And Los Angeles acquires the best corner in the league.
In exchange for the talented corner, the Jaguars are receiving a first-round draft pick in 2020 and 2021. In addition, Jacksonville gets a fourth-round draft pick in the 2021 draft.
Ramsey’s tenure with the Jaguars was rocky this year after showing up to training camp in an armored bank truck. He wanted to get more money for his talents, but it did not work out with his former franchise.
Following the team’s Week 2 loss to the Tennessee Titans, he was criticized by Tom Coughlin, the Jaguars Vice President of Football Operations. He never played again for the franchise.
After that loss, Ramsey initially said he was sick, then missed the last three games due to a back injury.
Ramsey is in the fourth year of his five-year rookie deal. Also, the acquisition comes at a time of need for the Rams.
The franchise put Aqib Talib one injured reserve. In addition, on Tuesday, the team traded former starting corner Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens.
