RB Sony Michel traded to the LA Rams


Recommended Posts

Just for alittle more clarity, it’s not really for 2 late round picks. It’s for the expected 4th Round Compensatory pick the Rams should receive for losing John Johnson last year. 

A bit complicated, but essentially BB offloaded a potential cut for a pick in the 130s. That’s a lot different than “two conditional late round picks”

He wasn't getting cut. He was not receiving an extension though.

 

But he was arguably the Patriots best RB in camp, he looked impressive running and much improved in pass catching.

 

He'll help the Rams.

I was a big fan of Michel with what he did in 2018. He looked really good towards the back end of the year, in particular, and won the SB for the Pats. I feel he's been a bit 'meh' in the last two seasons, but it's a smart pick up and gives us a different option than just running Henderson into the ground.

Huge win for the Patriots. Not sure what the Rams get out of this; Michel was probably going to be cut. Even if he wasn't, is he that much better than another RB from some other team, or maybe even from the Patriots, who would have gotten cut?

He's been less than healthy last few years and when he got healthy, Damien Harris took his spot.
