According to Ian Rapoport, the Lions are trading a 2023 seventh-round pick to the Rams for Brockers.
Brockers, 30, 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 that included more than $16 million guaranteed. After initially signing with the Ravens in free agency, Brockers returned to the Rams on a three-year, $24 million deal after his original deal with Baltimore fell through.
Brockers is owed $6.5 million and $7.5 million over the final two years of his contract.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Brockers will free up $4,666,666 of available cap space while creating $5,166,667 in dead money.
In 2020, Brockers appeared in 15 games and recorded 51 tackles and five sacks.
