Via Social Media, Safety Donte Whitner looks to be a Los Angeles Ram in the up coming hours or days
The Rams have been a defensive team as of late, as they are still looking to bolster up that dangerous Greg Williams style team. The Rams have been a bit short at safety since starting free safety Rodney McLeod signed a free-agent deal with the Philadelphia Eagles in March that he could not decline. His actions on the field will be lost, as he was key player on the defense. Whitner could be a great replacement for McLeod.
Throughout his 10-year career, Whitner has earned a reputation as a hard-hitting, intimidator type of strong safety best suited to playing in the box. That hard-hitting player may be coming to Los Angeles. Whitner had 81 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble for the Browns last year. He spent three years with the San Francisco 49ers between stops in Buffalo and Cleveland.
Throughout the past weeks, Donte Whitner has been tweeting his feelings about being a free agent and today, he made it clear he has been being patience to join the Los Angeles Rams. Donte tweeted out last night “Patience…I have it. Get you some” and a curious fan tweeted back at him “are you coming to the Rams or not” Whitner would reply…
That same fan would reply back to Whitner’s tweet and asked him when will it be official? Whitner once again did not beat around the bush and gave a straight forward answer.
It’s also important to point out that even in Whitner’s bio it says ‘LA’. He also followed a bunch of current Los Angeles Rams players. Donte Whitner will be a great addition for the Rams. Does Whitner bring some veteran help for the Rams defense, he sure does.
