Ian Rapoport reports that Brockers will now be re-signing with the Rams. The parties have reportedly agreed to a three-year deal worth up to $31.5M maximum value.
Reports surfaced earlier in the week that a recent physical performed by an independent doctor turned up concerns about Brockers’ ankle. The Ravens had a tough time getting a handle on Brockers’ condition due to current restrictions in place.
Baltimore was still trying to get a deal done with Brockers, considering that they lost Michael Pierce to the Vikings and traded away Chris Wormley to the Steelers. However, it appears as though they just weren’t comfortable giving him this contract with the ankle concerns.
Brockers, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Rams back in 2012. He was in the final year of his four-year, $9.522 million rookie contract when the Rams picked up his fifth-year option.
From there, Brockers agreed to a three-year extension worth over $33 million and includes more than $16 million guaranteed. He became an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his NFL career this offseason.
In 2019, Brockers appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and recorded 63 tackles, three sacks and a pass defense.
