Aaron Donald reacts to Rams signing Michael Brockers after Ravens deal fell through
Michael Brockers agreed to a hefty contract with the Baltimore Ravens over a week ago, but the defensive lineman will instead continue playing for the Los Angeles Rams in 2020. You can count Aaron Donald among those who are pleased the original deal fell through.
Brockers agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with the Ravens on March 16. However, there was talk this week that Baltimore had concerns over the 29-year-old’s physical and was exploring other options. The Ravens announced on Friday that they were unable to come to an agreement with Brockers, and reports that the former first-round pick is re-signing with the Rams immediately followed.
After all this, the #Rams end up with their homegrown talent and Michael Brockers ends up with a nice deal. Per source, he’s getting a three-year deal worth up to $31.5M maximum value — similar to what Baltimore had on the table. And LA gets more firepower up front on D.

Brockers and Donald have now been teammates for six seasons and counting with the Rams. Brockers had 63 tackles and three sacks last season for the Rams, and some key players have already left the team this offseason. It’s no surprise that Brockers being unexpectedly retained was well received.
