Rams Announce the Addition of Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters

The Los Angeles Rams now have two new additions to their "Mob Squad."

On Wednesday, the Rams announced at their training facility that both cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters would be the newest additions to their team. At the facility, it was only a short matter of time before Talib and Peters, former Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs players respectively, started to become best friends. Which is fitting, given that both players were on rival teams in the AFC West.

When asked, Peters said that it would be great to have another All-Pro corner on the other side of the field and coupled with other additions to the team, mentioned how it was going to be fun and teams would have to pick their poison. The other additions, of course, being safety Lamarcus Joyner, who was re-signed to the team with the franchise tag and re-signing cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman. Sam Shields, a former member of the Green Bay Packers, was signed to the team also.

Despite being the current NFC West champions, the team's work was cut out for them and they started by grabbing two high profile cornerbacks in the league as a way of repairing the secondary. It was something that defensive coordinator Wade Phillips addressed this past year, being his first year coaching this defense.

Head coach Sean McVay, who is entering his second season as the Rams head coach, stated that it was a great day for the team because having two players of that level on the same team brings a high amount of passion for the game along with it. He added that because they love football and are genuinely special players, they're the type that he loves to have around.

Of course, before grabbing Talib and Peters, the Rams had to make room for signing and this came with the release of linebackers Alec Ogletree and Robert Quinn. But with that, both Talib and Peters have shown excitement for playing on the same team. Between them both, there are seven Pro-Bowl selections, with both having a first team All-Pro selection back in 2016.
