One of the most pressing needs for the Rams this offseason is depth at safety. Two of their three most prominent options at safety, John Jonson III and Jordan Fuller are both free agents. The Rams could choose to re-sign them but they will need additional depth regardless since the defensive backfield was an area of major concern all of last year.

A solution to that problem could be bringing back a familiar face. The second-round selection of the Rams in the 2019 NFL Draft, Taylor Rapp might exactly be what Los Angeles is looking for.

Rapp's departure in the 2023 offseason after spending four years in Los Angeles was one of the primary reasons for the Rams' struggles on the secondary. In his last two years with the Rams, Rapp had played all but one game and played over 95% of defensive snaps. In 33 games over that span, he had six interceptions and 122 solo tackles.

After he signed with the Buffalo Bills last season, Rapp failed to make the same type of impact there. He was behind Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde in the rotation and ended up only starting in four games and playing 42% of snaps.

However, at age 26, Rapp is still in his prime heading into free agency and would be a valuable contributor for Sean McVay once again.
