Free agency roundup: Rams re-sign Dominique Easley

Print

The Rams are keeping defensive tackle Dominique Easley in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles re-signed Easley to a one-year deal, the team announced Monday.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported that Easley's contract has a base value of $1.85 million with a max of $2.85 million with incentives.

Easley missed all of 2017 due to a torn ACL suffered last August. The defensive lineman played a productive role in L.A. in 2016, compiling 35 tackles and 3.5 sacks alongside Aaron Donald in 16 games.

Easley, a former first-round pick of the New England Patriots, owns disruptive talent, but his career has been marred by injury. He tore both his ACLs in college. The successive one-year deals speak to the long-term concern about his career.

Still just 25 years old, Easley can be a productive player next to Donald in Wade Phillips' defense. The Rams, however, could still look to upgrade the position. L.A. is expected to meet with free agent Ndamukong Suh on Tuesday.
