The Los Angeles Rams have been making some major moves this offseason, recently picking up both Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. In a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs, the Rams were able to acquire two time Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters and a 2018 sixth-round pick in exchange for a 2018 fourth-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick. This was a steal for the Rams, as Peters has shown that he’s one of the best cornerbacks in the league leaving many Chiefs fans questioning this trade. “I was pretty upset when I saw the trade, Peters is a great player and still really young and I definitely think we could’ve got more out of the trade,” says Kansas City fan Jake Castle. Peters has been known to be a hothead on the field and has had heated arguments with Andy Reid, which likely played a part in the trade, but even with his attitude Peters is an incredible cornerback and a great addition to the Rams’ defense. Then, in a trade with the Denver Broncos the Rams were able to acquire five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib in exchange for a fifth-round pick. Talib is another great pickup for the Rams with the veteran cornerback adding to a secondary that’s staring to look scary good. It seems as though the Broncos were mainly trying to free up cap space with this trade, possibly to make a run at Kirk Cousins. Talib has also been known to have some issues on and off the field in the past, but his talent overshadows these issues. Through these trades, the Rams may have just created one of the best cornerback duos in the league.
