Ravens Concerned About DT Michael Brockers’ Ankle


On Wednesday, Ian Rapoport reported that the Ravens had interest in DT Ndamukong Suh before he agreed to return to the Buccaneers.

According to Jeff Zrebiec of the Athletic, a recent physical performed by an independent doctor turned up concerns about DT Michael Brockers ankle.

The Ravens are set to sign Brockers to a three-year, $30 million contract. However, Zrebiec explains that it has been challenging for the Ravens to get a handle on Brockers’ condition due to current restrictions in place.

In fact, Zrebiec says the uncertainty with Brockers’ situation has them considering options. 

Baltimore is still motivated to get a deal done with Brockers, especially considering that they lost Michael Pierce to the Vikings and traded away Chris Wormley to the Steelers. Although, there’s at least some question whether they’ll keep the current agreement in place as it was. 

Brockers’ agent, Scott Casterline, tells Mike Garafolo that he’s still “very confident Michael will be announced as a Raven this week.”

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.

We’ll have more regarding Brockers as the news is available.
