Jason La Canfora reports that, barring any unforeseen changes tomorrow morning, LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar will most likely be re-signing with the Rams.
Dunbar was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s performance enhancing substance policy. The Rams released Dunbar weeks ago, but previous reports indicated that a return was a possibility.
Players on the Rams defense mentioned that they believe some of their issues can be attributed to the loss of Dunbar. Last year, Dunbar tallied 115 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles for the Rams defense.
Rams HC Jeff Fisher wasn’t willing to rule out re-signing LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar who was released earlier this week.
“We haven’t said this is it as far as his future is concerned here,” said Fisher, per Nick Wagoner.
Given that Dunbar is suspended for the first four games of the season, St Louis could approach him about re-signing later in the season.
Dunbar, 28, was recently suspended for four games after he violated the league’s policy against performance enhancing substances. St Louis signed Will Witherspoon as a backup option, but it appears as though they’re comfortable moving forward without one of their starting linebackers from last season.
