Dolphins reportedly land Rams CB Jalen Ramsey in major trade
The Miami Dolphins needed to improve their cornerback play, and apparently they just got one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL.
The Dolphins traded for Los Angeles Rams guard Jalen Ramsey. according to NFL Media on Sunday. The Rams will reportedly receive a 2023 third-round pick as well as tight end Hunter Long, and Ramsey’s salary will also be guaranteed for 2023 and 2024.
The wording of the reports made it clear that the deal wasn’t official – nothing can be official until the league year starts on Wednesday – but it looks like it’s almost done.
And Ramsey seemed pleased with the change.
Two seasons ago, Ramsey played a big part in the Rams’ Super Bowl victory after Los Angeles acquired him in a massive deal. But the Rams had a losing season last year, and it was reported last month that they were open to trading Ramsey and wide receiver Allen Robinson II. Ramsey is 28 and should have a few good years yet, but the Rams could secure a place in the salary cap and also recoup their draft capital after trading a lot of picks over the past few years.
For the Dolphins, who made the playoffs last season and seem to be on the rise, this is an aggressive move to help their defense. And another move that makes AFK even stronger.
