2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Due to an injury to Trumaine Johnson, the likely starter heading into 2014, Gaines took hold of the starting cornerback spot and never let go. The rookie tallied 70 tackles, two picks and two fumble recoveries, but a Lisfranc foot injury will keep him out the entire 2015 season.

2014

Gaines picked off five passes and was part of a ferocious Missouri defense in 2013 before being picked in the sixth round. The defensive backfield was the Rams' weakness in 2013, and St. Louis is hoping Gaines can be one of their cornerbacks of the future.
