The Los Angeles Rams aren't finished looking for depth along their rugged defensive line.

After re-signing defensive end Eugene Sims to a three-year, $10 million deal, the team is planning to meet with fellow end Quinton Coples on Monday, a source informed of his plans told NFL Media's Rand Getlin.

Watch:

Coples flamed out with the Dolphins last season after three-plus underwhelming campaigns with the Jets, who made the former North Carolina star their first-round pick in 2012.

At just 25, Coples is young enough to give a team a fresh pair of legs, but none of his 16.5 career sacks came in 2015.

Other visits we're tracking around the league:

1. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported former Rams defensive end Chris Long has a visit scheduled with the Patriots and the Cowboys, per a source informed of the player's plans.

2. Free-agent wide receiver Nate Washington, previously of the Texans, has a visit scheduled with the Patriots, Rapoport reported per a source informed of the player's plans.

3. Former Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon is visiting with the Jets on Monday, per Rapoport.
