Patriots Are Trading Sony Michel To The Los Angeles Rams!
According to American sportswriter Adam Schefter, the Los Angeles Rams acquired Sony Michel from New England Patriots in exchange for a 2022 fifth and sixth-round pick.
On May 3, 2021, the Patriots announced Sony as a free agent after the 2021 season, after the fifth-year option on Sony's contract. Following that, on 25 August 2021, the Patriots traded him to the Los Angeles Rams as an exchange offer for a fifth and sixth-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Adam tweeted, ''Patriots are trading Sony to the Los Angeles Rams for two late-round conditional draft picks. New England gets back two picks; the Rams get needed talent and depth at running back.''
