The Ravens are a legit Super Bowl contender, and you can never have enough talented players at the skill positions.

According to multiple reports, the Los Angeles Rams are looking to trade running back Cam Akers, and we’re wondering if the Ravens should be interested in the dual-threat ball carrier.

According to ESPN’s Sarah Bishop, Rams head coach Sean McVay said general manager Les Snead has spoken with “a handful of teams” about a trade for running back Cam Akers, and “that’s the direction that we’re headed.”

Akers, a 2020 second-round pick out of Florida State, is in the final season of his rookie contract with the Rams.

He had 22 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown in Los Angeles’ season-opening win, and the team is looking to amass draft capital as they rebuild the roster.

Baltimore is solid at running back with Justice Hill, Gus Edwards, Melvin Gordon, and undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell.

Still, Akers could complement Lamar Jackson while taking the Ravens’ offense to another level.
