The Rams brought back defensive back Donte Deayon on Monday, according to an NFL Network report… and Deayon himself.

Deayon was a restricted free agent, who the Rams did not give a tender to, so he became an unrestricted free agent.

He will now have a chance to compete to be the slot cornerback as the Rams need to replace Nickell Robey-Coleman, whose option wasn’t exercised by the team so signed with the Eagles.

Deayon, 26, played in three games for the Rams last season. The Southern California native joined the Rams in 2018. He entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the New York Giants in 2016.
