The Rams aren’t going to let Leonard Floyd leave Los Angeles after he put together a career year in 2020. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Rams are re-signing Floyd to a four-year deal worth $64 million.
The Rams gave Floyd a one-year, $10 million contract last offseason and he immediately rewarded them with a 10.5-sack season, replacing Dante Fowler as the team’s top edge rusher. After a disappointing start to his career in Chicago, Floyd erupted with the Rams last season to earn a massive payday this year.
Given the state of the Rams’ outside linebacker group, it’s no surprise they opted to bring back Floyd. He’s a proven pass rusher with five years of experience, proving to be a player who can stabilize the group for at least a couple more years.
Floyd sounds excited to re-sign with the Rams, sharing this tweet after the news broke.
Floyd outplayed his one-year deal last season, but this is a huge extension that makes him one of the highest-paid pass rushers in the NFL. At $16 million per year, Floyd is tied for 14th in annual salary among all edge rushers.
