Rams Signing LB Leonard Floyd To One-Year, $10M Deal


According to Adam Schefter, the Rams are signing former Bears LB Leonard Floyd to a one-year, $10 million deal. 

The contract can be worth as much as $13 million, per Schefter. That’s about the amount Floyd was scheduled to make under the fifth-year option in 2020.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Floyd to a contract won’t impact the Rams 2021 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason.

Floyd, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Bears back in 2016. He was in the final year of his four-year, $15.7 million contract when the Bears picked up his fifth-year option worth $13.22 million for the 2020 season last year. 

However, Chicago released Floyd before the option became guaranteed at the start of the 2020 league year. 

In 2019, Floyd appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 40 tackles, three sacks, and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 41 edge rusher out of 107 qualifying players.

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
