Jalen Ramsey wants Tyrann Mathieu to come aboard and play for the Los Angeles Rams.
As the final day of the 2022 NFL Draft was going on, Los Angeles Rams star defensive back Jalen Ramsey was doing his part to recruit free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu to the defending Super Bowl champions.
Mathieu may have been electrifying the last three years with the Kansas City Chiefs, but he is almost certainly not heading back to Chiefs Kingdom on a new contract. With plenty of high-quality ball left in the tank, maybe the Honey Badger could find his way into the same secondary featuring Ramsey? As if the defending Super Bowl champions needed to add another star…
Here is Ramsey having some fun on the idea of linking up with Mathieu in L.A. on Draft Day.
Jalen Ramsey is trying to recruit Tyrann Mathieu to the Los Angeles Rams
Though no team in the NFL has repeated a Super Bowl win the following year since the 2003-04 New England Patriots, the Rams have a decent shot at doing so for a multitude of reasons. Not only is this roster stacked, but the Rams play in easily the weaker of the two NFL conferences. With the division rival Seattle Seahawks rebuilding, the Rams should have an easier time of coming out on top in the NFC West yet again.
Should the Rams somehow end up with Mathieu on the roster, then good luck trying to move the football on this defense. Though the Rams could be slightly better in the linebacking corps, adding a player as instinctive as Mathieu into the fray might help offset that. For a team like Los Angeles, this is a way to keep things interesting while they try to do the improbable and win it all again.
If Ramsey and Mathieu become teammates, we can put the Rams into the NFC conference title bout.
