One back burner item which could hurt the Rams more is the new CBA in 2021. That is when Ramsey becomes a free agent....
Players want to do away with franchise tag... if that happens or if the tag value increases significantly then Rams will have to pay more to retain him. In fact all free agents in 2021 and beyond could become more expensive.
The owners won't give up the franchise tag unless the players give up something big like an 18 game schedule.

Cooks seems to be the easy one to get rid of in that scenario.
They can't. He'd have a $36 Million dead cap hit.

Wow. The starpower deals they've made the past two years - Peters (now gone), Talib (IR), Suh (now gone), Cooks (extended contract), Fowler, Mathews, Weddle. Extending Donald and Goff. Now Ramsay.

They don't have a first round pick in forever and watch the NFL let LA host the draft in 2022 (a TBD date on the schedule).

Makes no sense they trade away one headache and trade a bunch of picks for another one. I gave Rams too much credit earlier when I said they were getting draft picks for assets that are tradeable. This fixes nothing for them. They still have a limp expensive R.B and Q.B that has been mediocre since Gurley went gimpy. Oh yeah im laughing my butt off ?

Crazy if things don't improve over there. And I will enjoy it. They may improve somewhat defensively but that offensive line is horrible. All I can say is...Whatever to them....lol

They expect Talib back this season such as last year and Ramsey is a fine number one corner to fill in for now. Their back up corners can’t be worse than what they’ve been getting from Peters. Once Talib comes back watch out.

Man. I just can't see this deal as a good one for the Rams. Some points to consider:
  • Ramsey will need a new contract.
  • Tons of cap space is taken up by a few so-called superstars.
  • Most teams make up for paying their superstars by drafting top talent at rookie contracts.
  • No #1 picks until 2022.
This is going to hurt. All they'll be able to do is get bottom tier talent for near vet minimum. An injury will kill them. See Falcons last year vs the depth the Saints carry.

Oh, its the Rams and their weakness is showing through.
