The Los Angeles Rams gave a four year, $64 million contract so that LB Leonard Floyd stays in town. The Rams are all in after the acquisition of QB Matthew Stafford earlier this off-season. The Rams are still in salary cap troubles so it is unknown how this contract will fit onto the books at this time.
Floyd really flourished in the Rams system and had the best year of his career in 2020. He was originally brought on after being let go by the Chicago bears on a one year deal. Chicago drafted Floyd with the ninth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. While in Chicago he never really lived up to expectations. Chicago decided not to sign him with the fifth year rookie option and instead let him walk in free agency.
That one year deal worked out very well for him as he gets a long term, big money contract this off-season. He finished this off-season with a total of 55 tackles and 10.5 sacks. Both of these numbers were career highs for him. Leonard Floyd stays with the Rams this off-season in hopes that this team is ready to win a championship right now. Once again, the Rams will have a front seven headlined by Floyd and the best defensive player in the league, Aaron Donald.
