Our own Buck Stanton broke down the top 10 defensive backs earlier this morning, and some familiar names that we’ve touted were on there.
These players include safeties T.J. Ward and Jairus Byrd and cornerback Alterraun Verner. Unfortunately, the Rams might get priced out of the market for defensive backs, considering 30-year-old Brent Grimes just re-signed with the Dolphins for $16 million in guaranteed money.
Meanwhile, Byrd, Ward and Verner are all in their mid-20s and smack dab in the middle of their primes. The Rams might need to fork over upwards of $25 or $30 million guaranteed if they want one of these talented ballhawks in blue and gold.
