The Los Angeles Rams’ asking price for Jalen Ramsey has been revealed, though it’s understood that the previous Super Bowl champions are not certain of trading the star cornerback.
According to ESPN’s Sarah Barshop, the Rams would want a first-round pick or a package consisting of a second pick, plus more, should they decide to pull the trigger on a trade.
While the Rams have gotten calls inquiring about Ramsey’s availability, the team isn’t sure whether it will trade the star cornerback, a team source told ESPN. If Los Angeles does trade him, it would likely take a first-round pick or a package with a second-round pick and more.
Interest in Ramsey is aplenty, yet the price tag could see the market close up.
NBC Sports’ Peter King has reported that the Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, and Kansas City Chiefs are potential destinations for Ramsey while ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler has also named the Detroit Lions as a possible landing spot.
Following their poor defense of the Lombardi Trophy, the Rams are looking to rebuild and a trade for Ramsey could set them well on their way. The CB has a cap hit of $25.2 million in 2023 and trading him before June 1 would only save them $5.6 million, leaving them $19.6 million in dead cap. Making a trade after said date would allow the team to spread the dead cap across two years, though it’s not a long-term solution.
The Rams could always keep Ramsey and try to run it back next season as they still have many of the players who won the Super Bowl with them – it’s probably why they aren’t sure of dealing him. They could become a threat again if Cam Akers has a healthy season and Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp return to full fitness.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
