Free Agency 2017: Rams reportedly sign RB Lance Dunbar

The Los Angeles Rams and former Dallas Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar have reportedly agreed to contract. The deal is for one year and worth up to $3 million as per NFL Insider Adam Caplan.

Dunbar provides a different skill set to the Rams’ running back corps as a speedster. Dunbar can be dangerous out in the open field, and the Cowboys had hoped he’d become a weapon. He never really panned out despite showing some promise in 2015 before sustaining a season-ending knee injury.

Dunbar’s stats don’t provide much insight as he only had nine carries for 31 yards and a touchdown last season. But, he has proven to be effective as a receiving option in the back field with a career total of 68 receptions for 646 receiving yards.

The Rams aren’t expected to bring back Benny Cunningham, although he is still a free agent. Dunbar is expected to compete for a roster spot, and could earn a spot as special teamer. He does have potential to be a decent kick/punt returner.
