LA Rams draft-day trade #2:

Perhaps the only other weak position on the entire LA Rams roster, alongside inside linebacker, is at tight end. Tyler Higbee and second-year tight end Gerald Everett will man the fort next season. And while Everett does have potential, his rookie year left a lot to be wanted and may be a telling sign that he would better fit in a different system.

Thus, the LA Rams should look to trade youth for veteran experience that will also improve their outlook at the position. Normally, this would be a bold and criticized move for a team to make. However, with so much existing youth, the Rams need to add veteran insight whenever they can.

The front office can get that done in a deal with the Washington Redskins for veteran tight end Vernon Davis. Davis is still a pass-threat at 34 years old, making 43 receptions for 648 yards last season.

This move makes sense for the Redskins, who can add a young tight end that will only get better in time with Gerald Everett. Washington is in no contention status right now, so a youth outlook may be the best option.

As for the Rams, their contending window is right now and they should be looking to improve in any way possible. If things don’t work out with Davis this season, the Rams have a potential out once the year is up. If they decide to keep Davis, he would have another season under contract.
