Well, now we know why the Los Angeles Rams traded away cornerback Marcus Peters on Tuesday. Just hours after that news broke, the Jacksonville Jaguars traded cornerback Jalen Ramsey to Los Angeles, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Jaguars are receiving two first-round picks (2020 and 2021), and a 2021 fourth-round pick in exchange for Ramsey, per the report.

The San Francisco 49ers beat the Rams 20-7 on Sunday and next face them during Week 16.

Ramsey, 24, is a two-time Pro Bowl selection and was named a first-team All-Pro in 2017. He requested a trade following an in-game argument with coach Doug Marrone during Week 2.

The Jaguars made Ramsey, who played college football at Florida State, the No. 5 overall selection in 2016. He registered 17 combined tackles, a pass defensed, and a forced fumble through three starts with the Jaguars in 2019. Ramsey has recorded 210 combined tackles, 45 passes defensed, nine interceptions, a touchdown, and two forced fumbles through his four NFL seasons.

H/t to Chris Wilson for the find.
