CB Donte Deayon Made Strong Impression o

The Los Angeles Rams began the season with limited depth at cornerback and following an ankle injury to Darious Williams, they've been put in a position to rely on le s experienced players to contribute.Cornerback Dont'e Deayon, who started the year on the practice squad, was brought up for the Rams' Blank Jersey Week 6 game and he delivered when called upon.Deayon played 66 defensive snaps against the New York Giants, holding down the fort in place of the injured Williams.In his first look in an expanded role, coach Sean McVay delivered encouraging words regarding Deayon's performance."You talk about Matthew, how smart he is, Double D (Deayon) is a Chad Bettis Jersey really smart, instinctual player, great competitor," McVay said. "He did a great job being able to play outside. He played some inside, played over 50 snaps for us and was a heavy contributor in a big Trevor Story Jersey way. I thought he did a great job.Definitely wasnt too big for him, came up and made some tackles as an enforcer in some of the run fits.Aside from Jalen Ramsey doing his part, the Rams primarily went with rookie Robert Rochell and Deayon as the two other cornerbacks playing along the boundary and inside at the nickel.Scroll to ContinueDavid Long Jr., who began the year as a starter, played just 27% of the Rams' defensive snaps. While the L.A. secondary played nearly all game without allowing any chunk plays from the Giants' offense, it appeared the coaching staff gaveDeayon an open opportunity to prove his worth over Long, and in Week 6 he answered the call."Double Dwas Chris Iannetta Jersey great. I was really pleased with him, but I also was really pleased with the secondary as a whole. Jalen continues to make his presence felt. That was an unbelievable play on the screen. He looked pretty swaggy with the celebration afterwards," McVay said laughing.Deayon was signed to the active roster Tuesday in a corresponding move Jake McGee Jersey after the Rams placed running back Jake Funk and tight end Johnny Mundt on injured reserve, ending their seasons.More from Ram Digest:
