The Los Angeles Rams took the league by surprise in 2017. They went 11-5 and were led by head coach Sean McVay and quarterback Jared Goff.
The Rams also had a decent defense, and they had a lot of success as far as interceptions go. The team finished tied for sixth in the NFL with 18 total interceptions.
But, the Rams will see one of their best cornerbacks, Trumaine Johnson, leave in free agency. However, the team didn't sit around, as they added two great pieces to fill their defensive secondary needs.
This off-season alone, Rams now have acquired CBs Aqib Talib, Sam Shields and Marcus Peters. Lots of talent and lots of personality.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2018
Yeah, that's insane. The Rams added Sam Shields, Marcus Peters and just recently traded for Aqib Talib.
These moves have led the Rams to undoubtedly win the offseason so far. They also retained safety Lamarcus Joyner to further solidify the secondary.
Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters have combined for 7 Pro Bowls and 2 first-team All-Pros. They're each signed through 2019 and will combine to cost about $30M for two seasons. The Rams will also probably get a third-round compensatory pick for Trumaine Johnson in next year's draft.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) March 9, 2018
Could this be the new Legion of Boom? The talent is there, and the current Legion of Boom is seemingly being taken apart.
Watch out NFL, the Rams are loaded with talent in that defensive secondary.
