The Los Angeles Rams have reportedly come to terms with OLB Dante Fowler. The contract is a 1-year deal with the financial terms unclear at this time, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.
The Rams brought Fowler to the team in a mid-season trade last season. Fowler did bolster the edge rushing, and made an impact in critical situations. He may not receive a long-term payday, but this is his chance to prove to the league that he deserves a huge contract.
This is a mutually beneficial contract. Fowler probably wouldn’t have the long-term contract offers he desires. The Rams can’t afford too high of a contract at this time, so it’s a perfect match. Fowler is banking on a huge season to earn the massive contract. This may also help him and the Rams earn a Super Bowl ring.
Fowler started six games with the Rams and earned 21 tackles, 2 sacks and a forced fumble. Fowler began his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars selected 3rd overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
