The Los Angeles Rams have had a busy free agency period thus far, bringing in Jonah Jackson to finalize their 2024 offensive line and reuniting with cornerback Darious Williams, among other moves. But the Rams offseason is just beginning, as they have made it clear they want to be aggressive with their resources this offseason. And one intriguing option is Buffalo Bills All-Pro cornerback Tre’Davious White.

White, 29, was one of the best defensive backs in all of football from 2017-20. He made two All-Pro teams and Pro Bowls in that span and finished second in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting in 2017. But injuries have plagued White and limited him to 10 games over the last two seasons. A torn Achilles cut his 2023 season short after only four games.

Now, White is a free agent and it seems a departure from Buffalo is likely after being cut. The Rams, still in need to secondary depth, are one of the teams reportedly slated to meet with White this week as he chooses a new home, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network:

The Rams and Las Vegas Raiders would both be improved in the secondary by the addition of White. Injuries are, of course, a concern, but there is no denying his all-world talent when he’s healthy. He had 54 pass deflections and 15 interceptions between 2017 and 2020, including a league-leading six in 2019.

Williams and Derion Kendrick are currently the starting corners for the Rams, and White — when healthy — would easily supplant either as the No. 1 CB.

Rams making big offensive line move

With the signing of Jackson from the Detroit Lions to be a starting guard, the Rams are making a big switch. They plan to take 2023 second-round draft pick Steve Avila and move him to center. The position opened up after starting center Coleman Shelton agreed to a deal with the Chicago Bears.

Avila, Jackson, Alaric Jackson, Kevin Dotson and Rob Havenstein now figure to be the starting offensive line for the Rams in 2024, a unit that could very easily rank among the best in football given what the group accomplished last season, plus the addition of Jackson.
