The Los Angeles Rams entered the offseason with a good amount of cap space and they did well to address the needs on their roster.

The biggest investment the Rams made was along the interior of the offensive line as they re-signed Kevin Dotson and brought in Jonah Jackson to start opposite of him at left guard. However, Los Angeles also addressed their secondary as they signed Kamren Curl to a two-year deal and reunited with Darious Williams.

Aside from Williams and Curl, the Rams also signed Tre’Davious White to a one-year deal in free agency. White was a cap casualty and cut by the Buffalo Bills, clearing the way for him to sign with Los Angeles.

White was at the facility on Tuesday to officially sign his deal and he greeted the fans, via the team’s official X account:

In the short video clip, White expresses how excited he is to be part of the team and how much he’s looking forward to working on and off the field.

The veteran cornerback has a lot to prove in the 2024 season as he’s suffered two major leg injuries the past couple of years. White suffered a torn ACL in the second half of the 2021 season and was forced to miss the entirety of the 2022 season. He returned as the Bills’ starting outside corner but unfortunately suffered a torn Achilles and missed the remainder of the year.

The severity of the injuries is concerning and while White is expected to make a full recovery it remains to be seen how well his body will hold up. However, Los Angeles signing him was a worthwhile gamble because there weren’t many players with his skillset available in free agency and for the price that they got him at.

At his best, White is a legitimate shutdown corner who can hold his own against any receiver. He’ll get a chance to immediately start for defensive coordinator Chris Shula, so hopefully he can regain his form and cash in next offseason.

Aaron Donald believes Rams need another edge rusher

Although White is a huge boost to the secondary, the defensive line sorely needs more talent and depth after Aaron Donald announced his retirement. Donald single-handedly was able to produce pressure from the interior, so Los Angeles will need to find a way to somehow replace that.

Donald took stock of the roster and emphasized that the Rams need another edge rusher.
