Jalen Ramsey's days in Los Angeles are coming to a close.
The Los Angeles Rams are trading the All-Pro cornerback to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a 2023 third-round pick and tight end Hunter Long, NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported Sunday, per sources.
Ramsey also received an adjusted contract that will see him get two years fully guaranteed to complete a deal that averages $20 million per season and received an additional $25 million guaranteed, per Rapoport.
Ramsey is coming off the sixth Pro Bowl season of his career and third with the Rams. However, with L.A. having already released linebackers Bobby Wagner and Leonard Floyd, and sitting at $9 million over the salary cap heading into Sunday, the Rams have been entertaining trade talks since at least late February, as reported by Pelissero.
Miami was Ramsey's preferred destination if he was traded, Rapoport added. And it makes for a splendid fit, as the Fins have been looking for a veteran cornerback for new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's system, NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe reported.
"I feel great, man. This is something I was praying about for a long time," Ramsey told Wolfe in an exclusive one-on-one interview. "I'm excited, man. I'm super excited."
