The Rams did not wait until the trade deadline to make another huge move.
A few hours after trading cornerback Marcus Peters to the Ravens, the Rams on Tuesday acquired cornerback Jalen Ramsey in a trade with the Jaguars.
The Rams gave up first-round picks in 2020 and 2021 and a fourth-round pick in 2021 for a player regarded as one of the NFL's top cornerbacks.
Ramsey, 24, was selected by the Jaguars with the fifth pick in the 2016 draft. He is earning about $7.4 million this season, and the Jaguars have exercised their fifth-year option, which would pay Ramsey $13.7 million in 2020.
But Ramsey made his feelings known about an extension when he arrived for training camp in an armored truck. During the season he has argued with coach Doug Marrone and reportedly asked to be traded.
With Peters and cornerback Aqib Talib off the books after this season, the Rams were positioned to add and pay Ramsey.
In another trade, the Rams acquired offensive lineman Austin Corbett from the Browns.
Wrong call on 'MNF'
The NFL acknowledged that a key penalty called against the Lions in their nationally televised loss Monday night at Green Bay was wrong.
Troy Vincent, the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, said that the second of two illegal-hands-to-the-face penalties called against Lions defensive lineman Trey Flowers was incorrect.
The Packers beat the Lions 23-22 at Lambeau Field on a field goal as time expired, with Green Bay's winning drive extended by the second penalty called on Flowers.
Bears' Hicks goes on IR
The Bears will be without defensive lineman Akiem Hicks for at least eight weeks after they placed him on injured reserve.
Hicks, a Pro Bowler last season, would be able to return to practice in six weeks. The earliest he could play is Dec. 15 if he is designated to return.
Hicks injured his left elbow in the Bears' Oct. 6 game against the Raiders in London. Before that, he dealt with a knee injury.
• The Steelers placed defensive end Stephon Tuitt on injured reserve, two days after Tuitt tore a pectoral muscle against the Chargers.
• Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford will undergo season-ending hip surgery.
• The Patriots re-signed tight end Ben Watson less than a week after releasing him.
• Saints defensive back P.J. Williams was suspended two games for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
