Comments Off on The Best Value Move for the Rams Before the Trade Deadline
It’s week 7 of the NFL season, and the trade deadline is next week, Nov. 3.
The Rams are in a tough fight in the NFC West and a playoff spot.

They are currently eighth in the NFC, and their week 7 game against the Chicago Bears can affect NFC seeding. Regardless of Monday’s win or loss, is there a move the Rams can make to address a possible need?

The Rams are looking good this season, so there isn’t a big need to address.

The Rams could make some moves for draft picks to assist another team, but for the few needs the Rams have, there might be some hard trades; the main being the Rams aren’t super deep like other teams.

The only piece the Rams have besides draft picks is Josh Reynolds. Van Jefferson can step into that role behind Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. I’ve been high on Van Jefferson since watching him in training camp. He looked good during drills and showed flashes of his potential in weeks one and two. Because of Kupp, Woods, and Reynolds, the Rams haven’t needed to call on Jefferson much this season. But Jefferson could step in if any of the receivers go down.

The Rams are great on defense, but they could try to get some depth in some key areas. I don’t expect Aaron Donald to miss any games, but with COVID-19, and at the rate players are getting injured, a backup is in order. However, a trade for a potential opposite to Donald could be Reynolds in exchange for Ryan Karrigan of the Washington Football Team. Karrigan is second on the depth chart behind the rookie Chase Young.

Kerrigan has been moved to defensive end after playing outside linebacker for nine years. He was dominant, recording 279 tackles and 105 tackles for loss in his career at linebacker. Karrigan could replace Samsom Ebukam on the weak side and provide some depth after three injuries to the Rams linebackers.

How likely is this trade to happen? It’s pretty unlikely.

The Rams don’t have much depth to consider trading, and they are playing well enough that they don’t need to make a trade.

The Rams don’t need to make a move, but it’s the best value for value move.
