The Rams signed linebacker Leonard Floyd to a one-year deal last year and they’re signing him to a longer deal this year.

Shortly after Josina Anderson reported that the Rams had wrapped up a new deal with Floyd, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that it is a four-year, $64 million contract.

Floyd set a career-high with 10.5 sacks while starting every game that the Rams played last season. He added two more sacks in the postseason and should remain a strong pass rushing threat in a front seven with Aaron Donald playing inside of him.

The Rams’ top-ranked defense did lose a key part on Monday when safety John Johnson agreed to a deal with the Browns, but Floyd’s return is a step toward remaining one of the league’s top units in 2021.

  1. You can kick the can game for so long before the street lights turn on and everybody has to go home. Eventually, the bill comes due.

  2. You can kick the can down the road forever when the cap will continue to grow and you are able to draft fantastic players in rounds 2-6. Snead is the best!

  3. Invest in your QB and your DLine, and you’ll get a decent return on your investment. Elite pass rushers don’t grow on trees. If you have one, don’t let him get away.

  4. Figures that Floyd was great once the Bears let him go. Can we expect Trubisky will be a Top 10 QB next year with another team?

  5. I thought Floyd would be leaving and worried about our pass rush. This is great news.

  6. Considering the Rams are going to get rid of about $30 million in dead cap money next year, and the NFL cap will increase by about $20 million, they will be able to really kick that can a long ways down the road.
