The 3-3 Los Angeles Rams made a pair of trades on Tuesday, shaking up a roster that has under-performed in 2019. The first was relatively minor, with L.A. acquiring second-year interior lineman Austin Corbett from the Browns in exchange for a 2021 fifth round pick—a move that comes just days after losing Joseph Noteboom for the year. The second, however, was quite the surprise.

The Rams sent cornerback Marcus Peters to the secondary-needy Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a fifth round pick and linebacker Kenny Young. Peters is set to hit free agency this spring, while Young, a UCLA product, is in the second year of his four-year rookie deal.

Peters’ departure from Los Angeles comes just days after the Rams placed Aqib Talib on injured reserve (however he is expected to return in 2019). Now without either of their starting cornerbacks, one would expect L.A. to add another player in the secondary soon. The JaguarsJalen Ramsey comes to mind, as well as the BroncosChris Harris, who current Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips previously coached.

Peters and his new team will travel to Seattle this week to take on the Seahawks, in Peters’ second trip to CenturyLink Field in three weeks.
