The Los Angeles Rams are one of the true Super Bowl contenders in the NFL. They are currently 6-1 on the season but will have their hands full dealing with the undefeated Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West. However, they need to find more pass-rushing help, and Myles Jack could be an intriguing candidate
One of those teams is likely going to have to battle through the NFC Playoffs on the road each round as only one team can win the division and get at least one home game. If the teams want to make an impact addition via trade, they are running out of time.
The NFL’s trade deadline is set for November 2nd. It is pretty evident which teams have a chance to make a postseason run this year and which teams don’t so there could be plenty of trades made.
Two of the teams on opposite sides of the spectrum are the Jacksonville Jaguars and Rams. Jacksonville is 1-5 on the season, as Urban Meyer and Trevor Lawrence picked up their first wins in London over the Miami Dolphins. Given their current standing, it would not be a surprise to see them move some players.
The Rams are no strangers to making blockbuster deals to put them in a better position to win. They did it over the offseason acquiring Matthew Stafford from the Detroit Lions and have experience doing it with the Jaguars already.
The Rams are the team who acquired star cornerback Jalen Ramsey from the Jaguars. Could they do it again with Jaguars linebacker, Myles Jack? CBS Sports believes it could happen.
Jack is a versatile linebacker that has been an integral part of the Jaguars’ defense since he was drafted in 2016. With a new regime in place, they may look to acquire some more draft picks to continue shaping the roster in their vision.
Jack would help improve a Rams linebacking group that has been unable to replace Cory Littleton, who signed with the Las Vegas Raiders in free agency last year. They also traded Kenny Young to the Denver Broncos recently, further diminishing their depth at the position.
Being in the win-now mode that they are, the Rams will assuredly scour the league for upgrades to help put them in a position to return to the Super Bowl. Landing Jack would help take the second level of their defense to another level that they have been unable to achieve thus far this season.
