The Rams brought back one defensive lineman on Friday and said farewell to another.

The team announced that defensive end Morgan Fox has been re-signed. Defensive tackle Tanzel Smart was cut loose in a corresponding move.

Fox signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and played in four games as a rookie. He was up to 16 games in 2017, missed 2018 with a torn ACL and returned to appear in every game last season. He had 18 tackles and two sacks while playing on 32 percent of the team’s defensive snaps.

Smart was a 2017 sixth-round pick who played 31 games over the last three seasons. He has 21 career tackles.
