The arms race in the NFC is heating up.
The Arizona Cardinals really set things off in season with their acquisition of Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz.
Now, the Los Angeles Rams are looking to one up then, or at least match that move by acquiring All Pro pass rusher Von Miller.

Miller did not play at all in 2020 due to an injury, but has looked good in his return.
On the season the 32-year old Miller has 4.5 sacks and seven tackles for loss. He has played well, but since week four has as many sacks as you.
That will likely change with the Rams, as he joins forces with Aaron Donald (5 sacks) and Leonard Floyd’s 6.5 sacks.
The Rams know they have to stop the Cardinals, Bucs and Packers if they want a chance to make their Super Bowl win happen in this window, because the draft cupboard is nearly empty.
The Rams do not have a first round pick in 2022 or 2023 and now if they are giving up day two picks, could be without their second and third rounders.
They are all in, but are they the favorites?
