Well, that was fast.
A wild twist turns Brockers around after he was headed to Baltimore.
The 29-year-old defensive lineman was expected to sign a three-year, $30 million deal in Baltimore that included $21 million guaranteed. However, a lingering high-ankle sprain from late in the season was flagged in a medical report, and the two sides couldn't agree on how the contract should be altered.
Rapoport noted that the three-year deal in L.A. is worth up to $31.5 million in maximum value, similar to what was on the table in Baltimore.
The scuttled deal in Baltimore is the latest fallout due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. With team offices shut down and players unable to take visits to receive physicals, situations like Brockers' were bound to happen.
