The Los Angeles Rams were relatively quiet on the first two days of the legal tampering period, causing some concern among fans. However, on Wednesday, the Rams made a few moves that are vital for next season — including the signing of Leonard Floyd.
Prior to signing Floyd, Dante Fowler chose to walk in free agency, signing with the Atlanta Falcons for $48 million over three years. Fowler tallied a career-high 11.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in his first full season with the Rams in 2019.
In his previous three seasons, Fowler had a grand total of 16 sacks to his name. Now, the Rams are hoping that Floyd can follow in Fowler’s footsteps in 2020.
After signing Floyd to a one-year, $10 million contract, Los Angeles figures to have him become an immediate fixture on the defense. With that in mind, here is why Floyd is a good free-agent signing for the Rams.
