After the Rams agreed to send defensive tackle Michael Brockers to the Lions in exchange for a 2023 seventh-round pick earlier this week, a report emerged that Brockers would receive a new contract in Detroit.

Now the details of that new deal have emerged.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, Brockers’ new contract is for three years and $24 million, with $11 million guaranteed. The defensive lineman’s previous contract with the Rams had no more guaranteed money.

Brockers had spent his entire career with the Rams. The team picked him at No. 14 overall in 2012 and he played 138 games for the franchise. He recorded 28.0 sacks, 48 tackles for loss, and 62 quarterback hits in nine seasons.

  1. Jared Goff is elated to have another former Rams player. Especially since Brockers is a step up from the current Lions defense.

  2. In his heart, deeply, just understanding the kind of financial compensation it brings…it’s a level up.

    From Patriots West to Rams East. Super.

    I don’t get this sorry. I mean they have traded for two players thats it. They haven’t even signed a guy from L.A yet and the two players they added well at least Brockers is a significant upgrade vs what they had and the other came with 2 future 1st round picks. So whats the exact issue so far?

  4. It shouldn’t be too hard for the new Lions GM to transform Detroit into a similar team LA has had during his best years.. Rams got worse when Gurley was injured then left. Lions have Swift. Rams had a great D. Lions have Brockers and 5 first round picks in the next 3 drafts to build up theirs. Who really believes Goff won’t be decent with Anthony Lynn coaching him up? Lions could quickly become a playoff contender if they hit on all those picks.

  5. Doesn’t matter how many draft picks the Lions have or what delusional thoughts you have. The fact remains that the Lions are many years from doing anything and will continue their 64 year legacy of one playoff win.
