Earlier this offseason there were lots of theories thrown around in regards to how the Los Angeles Rams might try to manage their cap situation, what with all the high-priced contracts on the books after their Super Bowl win last year. One possibility was trading Jalen Ramsey, entering the third year of his five-year, $100 million deal. Trading Ramsey before June 1 would save the Rams $5 million and get them off the hook for the final few years of his deal. It makes some sense if Los Angeles would prefer to allocate those financial resources elsewhere, even if Ramsey is an All-Pro, and on Friday reports emerged suggesting it may actually happen.

Back in January we broke down some potential trade destinations for Ramsey. Those quallify as the obvious names, teams with clear motive and opportunity to pull off a transaction. Here, we will examine the dark horses– the teams that will emerge suddenly out of the night willing to meet the Rams' prive (or even overpay) in order to land an elite cornerback.
