- According to Pauline, Dolphins are also among the interested teams in Brockers.
There were rumors of teams being interested in Brockers earlier this week, even though the Rams denied any interest in trading the former first-round pick.
St. Louis picked up Brockers’ fifth-year option, which will pay him $6.146 million for the 2016 season. However, this figure is guaranteed for injury only and wouldn’t prevent them from working out a long-term deal that would come with a lower cap figure.
Brockers, 24, has one year remaining on his four-year, $9.522 million rookie contract that included a $5.365 million signing bonus. He stands to make a base salary of $1,688,454 for he 2015 season.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Brockers would free up $1,688,454 in available cap space while creating $1,341,273 in dead money.
In 2014, Brockers appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and recorded 32 tackles, two sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 53 defensive tackle out of 69 qualifying players.
