The Los Angeles Rams have some tradable assets that could help get them out of cap trouble, and Jalen Ramsey is the first domino to fall.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Dolphins landed Ramsey in a deal that sent a 2023 third-round pick and tight end Hunter Long to Los Angeles. The deal is only agreed upon for now, as it can't become official until Wednesday.
CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson first reported the Rams and Dolphins were in “deep discussions” around a trade that would send the cornerback to Miami.
Ramsey was All-Pro in 2020 and 2021, and made the Pro Bowl last season. He would be a huge addition for the Dolphins, whose pass defense surrendered the fifth-most yards in the air per game last season. In 2022, Ramsey picked off four passes and forced a pair of fumbles.
The 28-year-old sounded pleased with the development, tweeting this out moments after news of the discussions came out.
Ramsey began his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and was a key part of the 2017 Jags defense that made it all the way to the conference title game.
