All of the sudden, the Los Angeles Rams have one of the most dangerous secondaries in football.
They already upgraded their secondary after they acquired cornerback Marcus Peters in a trade from the Kansas City Chiefs.
Now, they reportedly have acquired cornerback Aqib Talib from the Denver Broncos.
The #Broncos have agreed to trade CB Aqib Talib to the Rams per sources— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) March 9, 2018
Talib has made it to five consecutive Pro Bowls, and is still a really solid cornerback.
He's certainly capable of being any team's No. 1 corner, but with Marcus Peters, Talib will be just fine as their number two cornerback.
Rams are expected to trade a 2018 fifth-round pick to Broncos for CB Aqib Talib, per source. https://t.co/y5eQAfOErx— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2018
In return, the Rams are expected to give up a 2018 fifth round pick.
So, essentially the Rams gave up a second, fourth, and fifth round pick in exchange for two Pro Bowl cornerbacks so far this offseason. That seems like a no brainer.
You have to give Rams general manager Les Snead credit. He's strengthens this defense already and has Sean McVay coaching an offense that has turned out to be one of the most dynamic and dominant offenses in the game.
Look out for the Rams in 2018.
