Floyd was released by the Bears Tuesday after Chicago signed edge rusher Robert Quinn to a three-year deal. When the Rams didn't retain Fowler, they turned their attention to Floyd. The former first-round pick of the Bears comes to Los Angeles with 18.5 sacks under his belt in four seasons, and he'll be joining a team that is starting a new era under first-time defensive coordinator Brandon Staley.
Floyd hasn't yet fulfilled his potential in his four seasons, but this isn't a huge risk for the Rams, who could see quite the return if the Georgia product flourishes in his new home. At the very least, Floyd's 54 starts in four seasons -- including 32 starts in a possible 32 games in the last two seasons -- proves he can be counted on to be available.
