Rams announce three-year extension for Michael Brockers

Not long after the Rams were pasted by the 49ers on Monday night, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the team had signed defensive tackle Michael Brockers to a contract extension.

Whether because there were still final details to sort out or because the team felt it was a bad look to extend players right after a poor performance by the team, no announcement from the Rams came on Tuesday or Wednesday but official word finally came on Thursday. The Rams have signed Brockers to a three-year contract that keeps him signed through the 2019 season.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the deal has a maximum value of more than $33 million and more than $16 million in guarantees.

“Retaining Michael was a priority for our organization,” coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement. “Our defensive front has always been important to us, and Michael has been a significant part in what we do on that side of the football since we drafted him. We’re excited that he is going to continue his career with us here in Los Angeles.”

There’s been talk of extensions for Fisher and General Manager Les Snead as well, although nothing has come to fruition at this point.

    They also announced extending Jeff Fisher’s contract to 2025 because he does such a great job preparing his team!

    Poor guy, I feel bad for him. He should have become a free agent ASAP.

    So many promising young players.

    So many disappointment seasons.

    Extend Snead and Fisher too so we can all laugh.

    Well, maybe the “official” team statement just came out but Fisher mentioned this Tuesday on his radio show….players get extended all the time, even after a beat down, but go ahead, keep piling on the Rams….

    Well-deserved as Brockers is a very underrated DT but any talk of an extension for Fisher is absolutely ludicrous.

    Now if they only had a coach and a QB.

    From the team that just gave Tavon Austin $40 million.

    There are people with so little going on they actually listen to Jeff Fisher’s radio show?

    Josh was giving Rams fans heart attacks figuring the name attached would be Snead and/or Fisher.

    The team wanted to extend him for five years but, after that Monday night game, he requested it to only be three years.

    Maybe Michael was having second thoughts…..

    A priority for the Rams organization should be fire Fisher as soon as possible.

  16. tjacks7 says: Sep 15, 2016 6:47 PM

    Not sure how they convinced him to sign this deal… Live in LA… Pay sky high taxes… Play for the Rams… Literally no upside for Brockers here.

  17. jimmysee says: Sep 15, 2016 7:22 PM

    …… because he played so well against the ‘Niners.

  18. idiedpretty says: Sep 15, 2016 7:27 PM

    Great news. This gives Fisher another 60 year extension, yes?

  19. thehighhat says: Sep 15, 2016 7:59 PM

    Dude was invisible Monday night. Probably got the extension because he gives Rams lifers Fisher and Snead good back rubs.

    Nobody on that team should be extended until they score.
