Los Angeles Rams trade All-Pro CB Jalen Ramsey to Miami Dolphins
The next time star cornerback Jalen Ramsey suits up in the NFL it will be for the Miami Dolphins.
The Los Angeles Rams have agreed to trade Ramsey to the Dolphins in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2023 draft, as well as tight end Hunter Long.
The trade was agreed to on Sunday but cannot be made official until the new league year begins on Wednesday.
As part of the deal, Ramsey's salary will be guaranteed at $36.9million over the next two seasons.
The 28-year-old just completed his seventh season in the NFL and is still considered one of the top cornerbacks in the league.
The fifth overall pick of the 2016 draft, Ramsey was named to his sixth Pro Bowl in 2022 as he compiled four interceptions, two sacks, three forced fumbles and 18 passes defensed while playing in all 17 games.
An instrumental part to the Rams' Super Bowl championship in 2021, Ramsey now joins a Dolphins team who went 9-8 to make the playoffs last season but had the sixth-worst passing defense, yielding an average of 234.8 pass yards per game.
In his career, the three-time All-Pro has 19 interceptions, seven forced fumbles and 92 passes defensed.
