Los Angeles Rams Make Trade For All Pro Linebacker

A day before the NFL trade deadline, the Los Angeles Rams added another Pro Bowl talent. The Rams sent a second-round pick and third-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft to the Broncos in exchange for Von Miller. Miller is an eight-time pro bowl linebacker. The Broncos will also pay $9 million of Miller’s remaining $9.7 million base salary for the remaining nine games in the regular season. Over the offseason, the Rams completed a blockbuster trade for quarterback Matthew Stafford, who the team believed could be the final addition needed to win a title and do so in their brand-new home at SoFi Stadium, where the next Super Bowl will be played. Now Miller will provide needed reinforcement to a defense that has experienced a slight decline from last season’s top-ranked performance despite starring three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Donald and All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

Von Miller is in the final year of the six-year, $114.5 million contract he signed in late July 2016, six months after he had won the Super Bowl 50 MVP award. He is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent following the season. The Los Angeles Rams are amongst the favorites to come out of the NFC to advance to the Super Bowl. This was all before the deal for Von Miller, so they are most likely the favorites. Miller, who is the league’s active career sack leader with 110.5 (sacks became an official statistic in 1982), is one of the most decorated players in team history with eight Pro Bowl selections and three first-team All Pro selections, and he was chosen for the all-decade team for the 2010s by the Hall of Fame’s board of selectors.

The Rams are also anticipated to make another roster move after veteran receiver DeSean Jackson, who signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal that included $2.75 million guaranteed over the offseason, requested late last week to be traded.
