Ex-Browns safety Donte Whitner visiting Rams

Donte Whitner was worried that his late release from Cleveland would jam up his chances of landing a fair deal in free agency.

But at least he's getting some interest.

The 30-year-old, three-time Pro Bowler is visiting with the Rams this week, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Pro a Football Talk first reported the development.

Whitner tweeted a photo of his boarding pass Sunday morning.

Los Angeles is still smarting after a free agent period that saw them lose some key pieces in the secondary. At the moment, T.J. McDonald, Cody Davis and Christian Bryant round out their safety corps.

If nothing else, Whitner is a versatile, experienced safety with some juice left in the tank. The Rams will have some interesting pieces to play with, especially if they continue to learn ways to utilize Mark Barron as a hybrid defender.

Whitner had more than 80 tackles in 2015 along with 1.5 sacks.
