I think Barron has been very. Productive the last two years but I'm wary teams will figure out how to take away his effectiveness if he is consistently lined up at the same spot at inside linebacker.
If they haven't figured out who the strong safety is they should consider moving Barron there.
Mo Alexander could a better fit at inside linebacker even though he isn't proto either.
They may be readying Webster for FS .
At least that would be one question resolved.
A trade of Barron may have merit but a trade should only happen if they have a replacement with improved ability and size to take on and shed blocks otherwise Barron stays and they set him at different angles to make it tough to get him blocked.
Barron is a football player but he isn't untouchable or without weakness.
Touch and go to work around some shortcomings but his disruptive flashes are pretty attractive as well as his substantial consistent nose for the ball when he's unblocked.
I expect a big offer would be the only way it gets done. Other wise he's a game day chesspiece for us.
A very interesting one too.

I don't see any short comings with Barron. He's the best tackler of any of the linebackers and he has natural instincts for the position. Proto type size should not be the determination if a guy can play that position. London Fletcher was only 5'8" or 5'9" and a better middle linebacker you could not have asked for.
Jack Reynolds was very short as well.

I think the Rams need to add linebackers for depth and not subtract them. Both Tree and Barron have been great. Where the Rams have fallen down is the fact Robert Quinn cannot stay healthy or effective. He has not been the same pass rusher since his breakout year of a couple of years ago.

I'd love to see the Rams get another real good edge rusher in there.

Not sure how Aaron Donald is going to fit the 3-4.
