Rams Reportedly Discussing a Jalen Ramsey Trade

The Los Angeles Rams are looking to shed cap and plenty of it. One day after the team parted ways with linebacker Bobby Wagner, the team is reportedly discussing a trade of six-time Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero broke the news this evening. Pelissero is reporting that the Rams have had trade talks regarding Ramsey. Pelissero believes a trade is “very likely” in the coming weeks.

The Rams will free up roughly $5 million in cap space when Bobby Wagner’s release becomes official on March 15. The Rams are $14.8 million over the cap as of today, so Wagner (and possibly Ramsey) won’t be the last of the cap casualties.

Ramsey has a $25.2 million cap number in 2023. Trading Ramsey would provide the Rams with more desperately needed cap space. Ramsey is set to make $14.5 million in 2023 and $15.5 million in 2024 in the final two years of his extension with the Rams.

If the Rams traded Ramsey before June 1, they would have a $19.6 million cap saving with $5.6 million in dead money in 2023.

Ramsey logged 88 tackles and four interceptions this season on his way to a sixth Pro Bowl selection.

The Rams can’t officially trade Ramsey until March 15.
