“That experience, however, is still valuable. In returning to the team by way of a three-year-deal, he’ll be able to continue to mentor the offensive linemen and other young players in the organization as he often did the last three years both on and off the field.”

Michael Brockers has been in the NFL for eight years, so he’s made his fair share of money since being a first-round pick by the Rams in 2012. Excluding his new three-year deal with the Rams, Spotrac has his career earnings at more than $49 million.”

“Quarterback is way down on the Rams’ list of priorities this offseason, and likely for the next few years, too. Jared Goff is going to be under center for the foreseeable future, but Los Angeles is still in the market for a quarterback to sit behind him on the depth chart.”

“The Rams and Chargers will both host games at SoFi Stadium beginning in August for the preseason, assuming the 2020 season isn’t delayed due to COVID-19. The project is on a very tight schedule, and once completed, it’ll be one of the best stadiums in the country.”

“It was a wild ride for Michael Brockers during free agency as he had all of his bags packed and ready to go to be a member of the Baltimore Ravens. Unfortunately for the Ravens, the deal went through the cracks as the Rams quickly jumped on the opportunity to bring him back to Los Angeles. Brockers recently joined Chris Long’s podcast and spilled the truth on what happened with the Ravens as well.”

https://theathletic.com/1713942/2020/04/02/post-free-agency-nfl-power-rankings-how-qb-changes-impact-bucs-colts-pats/

“So let’s catch up: The Chiefs are the champs. Tom Brady’s a Buc. DeAndre Hopkins is a Cardinal!? The Browns have a new coaching staff and front office (again). The Cowboys have franchise tagged Dak Prescott and signed Amari Cooper to a long-term deal. The Bengals actually spent money in free agency. Cam Newton and Jameis Winston — two former No. 1 overall picks — are free agents. And that’s just part of what has been a weird, wild offseason.”

“Millions have been spent and the landscape of the NFL has been significantly altered due to the initial free-agency blitz. But while there are obvious storylines (Tom Brady) that have been written and a few more to go (Jadeveon Clowney), now is a good time to take the temperature of each NFL team.”
