It’s official. Jalen Ramsey is a Los Angeles Ram. Last year’s Super Bowl runner-up has added one of the league’s elite stars.
The trade became official yesterday. And just a bit over 48 hours later, Ramsey is practicing with his new team.
The Rams official Twitter account posted a video of their new cornerback attending his first practice with Los Angeles. Check out the video below.

The Rams are hoping Ramsey is what they need to get back on track. The team finds itself at 3-3, good for third place in the NFC West.
Both the 49ers and Seahawks have looked like the division’s best teams. Los Angeles has work to do.
With Ramsey, the Rams now have two of the league’s best defensive players. Aaron Donald has been a force on the defensive line, helping bolster one of the NFL’s most intimidating defenses for the past several years.
But something’s been lacking with this unit to start the 2019 season. Perhaps Ramsey will provide the much needed boost the team is looking for.
The Rams won’t be tested too much over the next two weeks. Los Angeles travels to Atlanta to play the 1-5 Falcons this Sunday before a home contest against the win-less Cincinnati Bengals on Oct. 27.
Ramsey is excepted to make an immediate impact for the Rams.
