REPORT: Los Angeles Rams wont trade or release DT Michael Brockers

New, comments

Looks like the long-time Ram will remain, unless something drastic happens.

According to Vinny Bonsignore of The Athletic LA, the Los Angeles Rams have no plans to release or trade DT Michael Brockers:

Brockers has been a player many have discussed as someone that could potentially be traded/cut/restructured/extended as his cap hit is $11m with only a $750k penalty had the Rams decided to move on. Obviously the price is steep, especially for a player who didn’t have his best season in 2018. The potential saving grace for Brockers is that fellow defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh is likely to walk in free agency. Vacating the nose tackle spot, Brockers could potentially make the move back inside as he played four games at NT in 2017.

Brockers had 54 tackles, one sack, four tackles-for-loss, and four quarterback hits in 2018, though his presence in the locker room cannot be understated. Brock is currently the second longest tenured Ram on the roster (will be longest-tenured if LG Rodger Saffold departs) as he’s played seven seasons with the team.

A restructure isn’t out of the realm of possibility, but it looks unlikely at this point.
