Ahead of the NFL trade deadline last season, Ramsey was traded to the Rams in exchange for multiple first-round picks. Before he began his first full year with Los Angeles in 2020, Ramsey became the highest-paid cornerback in league history after agreeing to a multi-year extension with the Rams.
On Monday night, Ramsey and Los Angeles made life extremely tough for Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Despite allowing 24 points, the Rams picked off Brady two times and Ramsey was crucial in slowing down Tampa Bay’s dynamic receiving corps.
The 26-year-old cornerback is on his way to being named an All-Pro for the second time in his career. In the first 11 weeks of the season, Ramsey has contributed 29 tackles, three pass breakups, and an interception.
Not many quarterbacks tend to target No. 20 through the air as he’s playing at the highest level of his career right now. The former first-round selection is currently holding opposing quarterbacks to a 51.4 percent completion percentage and a 65.3 passer rating when targeted (both are career highs).
Throughout the season, Ramsey hasn’t been in the giving mood, limiting opposing wide receivers to low numbers. However, with the holiday season upon us, Ramsey is feeling charitable to families who need help at this time of the year.
