The Los Angeles Rams have made a big addition to their defensive core as they aim to reach the Super Bowl for a second straight year.

The team announced that they have acquired star cornerback Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a 2020 and 2021 first round draft picks, and a 2021 fourth-round pick.

The 24-year old, who was selected fifth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, has compiled 210 combined tackles, 45 passes defended, nine interceptions and one touchdown over a span of 51 games and three-plus seasons with the franchise.

He is also a two-time Pro Bowler, and was selected to the first All-Pro Team in 2017.

He hasn’t played since the Jaguars’ week 3 win over the Tennessee Titans due to lingering issues with his back.

Washington Football Team parting ways with Comeback Player of the Year Alex Smith

Published

His story was straight out of a movie, but the Washington Football Team is ready to move on from the veteran quarterback.

According to reports, the 2020 NFC East champions are parting ways with Alex Smith and going in a new direction for the 2021 campaign.

Smith, 36, came back this past season after miraculously recovering from a devastating leg injury nearly two years ago that resulted in life-threatening necrotizing fasciitis and sepsis which required him to undergo a total of 17 surgeries.

He ended up playing a total of eight games in 2020, amassing 168 pass completions for 1582 yards, six touchdowns and eight interceptions. Considering all the fears he could lose his left leg (let alone step on the field again), he managed to defy the odds. And for that reason, he was rewarded the 2020 NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

The Indianapolis Colts have found their Philip Rivers replacement.

The team announced today that they have acquired young quarterback Carson Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for
third-round draft pick in 2021 and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first round pick under the following conditions: Wentz plays 75% of the snaps for the Colts in 2021, or he plays 70% of the snaps AND the colts make the playoffs.

Wentz, 28, was selected 2nd overall by the Eagles in the 2016 NFL Draft. He started his career off strong (which included a 2017 Pro Bowl selection, and being named a 2017 Second Team All-Pro), but things had soured in recent years which resulted in Jalen Hurts taking over the starting quarterback duties in Philadelphia this past season.

Wentz has amassed 1562 pass completions for 16,811 passing yards, 121 touchdowns, and 50 interceptions over a span of five seasons and 68 games.
