Michael Brockers has been a member of the Rams since he was drafted 14th overall in 2012. He’s one of the longest-tenured members of the team, having played 123 games in eight seasons.

He’s set to be a free agent in March, and as important a role as he’s played in recent years, Brockers may not be in the Rams’ plans for 2020 and beyond. He’s 29 years old and was making more than $11 million on his last three-year contract.

He won’t fetch that amount on his next deal, but he’s also not going to be as cheap as someone like Morgan Fox, who shared time with Brockers at defensive end toward the end of the season.

General manager Les Snead has a lot to work through in the coming months, and this week, he spoke specifically on Brockers’ situation.
