Trade for Colts: Needing cornerback depth having only Jerraud Powers, Justin King, and Cassius Vaughn at cornerback, the Colts sent an undisclosed late round pick to St. Louis for Josh Gordy. Gordy played 12 games, including 9 starts, for an injury plagued Rams secondary last season, but struggled, grading out as ProFootballFocus’ 96th ranked cornerback out of 109, allowing 27 completions on 42 attempts (64.3%) for 387 yards (9.2 YPA), 2 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions, while deflecting 2 passes and committing 1 penalty. He was their worst rated cornerback against the run. However, they almost had to make some sort of move because of how much they lack depth at cornerback.
Trade for Rams: Gordy played a big role for the Rams last season, but he didn’t play well and with Bradley Fletcher coming back from injury and Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins coming in, Gordy would have been their 4th cornerback at best this season. It’s surprising they were able to get anything for him.
