Detroit Lions close to trading for Rams DL Michael Brockers
Forgive us if we’ve seen this before.
Another deal, another Detroit Lions GM that brings in a player from the organization they come from.
We know how it went last time. Let’s see how Brad Holmes’ deals work.
The Lions are nearing a deal with Los Angeles Rams defender Michael Brockers, according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero.
It is not clear what the Lions are negotiating with the deal.
ANOTHER LATE NIGHT MOVEMENT:Lions ex-packers, RB Jamaal Williams, reportedly received $ 7.5 million on a two-year contract
Last season Brockers had lost 51 tackles (21 solo), five sacks and five tackles in 15 games (all starts). In the last four seasons he had at least 50 tackles.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the Rams asked Brockers to “adjust his contract” but failed to secure a new deal.
According to spotrac, Brockers signed a three-year, $ 24 million deal with LA ahead of the 2020 season. It is not clear how much Brocker’s salary the Lions will be responsible for and what the cap is.
The 30-year-old Brockers was a first choice of the Rams from the LSU in 2012. For the first year, Les Snead was the team’s general manager. At the time, Holmes was a national scout for the Rams.
The following season, Holmes was the team’s Director of College Scouting, the position he held until the Lions hired him earlier this year.
News of the trading game in the early hours of the first day of league year 2021, when Matthew Stafford trades for Jared Goff and three draft picks to the Rams and becomes official.
Brockers reportedly told TMZ that Stafford was “one level higher” than Goff. But now it seems that Goff is his quarterback again.
