Michael Brockers didn’t expect to be practicing in Thousand Oaks, California, this summer. The defensive tackle signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the Ravens in March.

But the pandemic prevented the Ravens immediately from examining his ankle, which he injured in the season-ending victory over the Cardinals. Once they did, the Ravens rescinded the deal.

The Rams signed him to a three-year deal worth up to $31.5 million.

He is happy to be back with the Rams and back on the field practicing.

“I’ve been going full speed every practice, no let-up,” Brockers, 29, said, via Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News. “I’m having a little treatment, just old-man stuff, to keep me going.”

Brockers called the NFL’s cancellation of all on-field offseason workouts “a blessing in disguise.” It allowed him to get his ankle “totally . . . comfortable.”

“He looks like himself on that field,” Rams coach Sean McVay said.
