Ankle injury delaying contract for former Rams’ star

The Rams have lost several key players in free agency, but one is not officially gone — yet.

The Athletic reported on Wednesday that due to an ankle injury suffered last season, the Baltimore Ravens have yet to finalize a contract for defensive lineman Michael Brockers.

Yet, but all accounts, the Ravens want to get the deal done. Brockers’ agent told the NFL Network this:

Still, due to the coronavirus crisis, it may be difficult to get a deal done anytime soon.

Is there any way Brockers could head back to the Rams?

Well, if the deal in Baltimore is eventually scuttled, Brockers will become a free agent again. And, if that happens, it is technically a possibility that Brockers returns to L.A.

Still, an eventual union in Baltimore is the likely ending. But, it’s not officially over until he’s signed as a Raven.

Brockers agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with the Ravens last week. Brockers, 29, played his entire eight-year career so far with the Rams, and had one of his best NFL seasons in 2019.
