The Los Angeles Rams are showing strong interest in Jarvis Jones and will meet with the linebacker after his visit with the Arizona Cardinals.
Between a few departures in NFL free agency along with missing out on DeMarcus Ware, the Los Angeles Rams are still hoping to add another linebacker to Wade Phillips‘ defense for the 2017 season. While there are still plenty of solid linebackers to choose from in this year’s class, the one name to keep an eye on over the next few days is former first-round pick Jarvis Jones.
The Rams are reportedly showing strong interest in the linebacker, and have even scheduled a visit with Jones once he wraps up his meeting with the Arizona Cardinals. At 27, Jones still seems to have plenty of good years left in him, and adding him to the linebacker mix could work wonders for Los Angeles during their first season with Phillips at defensive coordinator.
In four seasons with the Steelers, Jones has started 35 of the 50 games he’s played in, and would easily have an immediate impact on defense for the Rams. Depending on how his meeting with Arizona goes, it will be interesting to see if Phillips and Los Angeles can convince Jones to join a team that has been making plenty of the right moves in free agency to help bounce back from last year’s disappointing 4-12 finish.
When considering the Rams already found a way to sign another player they had strong interest in after inking Kayvon Webster to a two-year deal, here’s to hoping the meeting with Jones goes well, and they can do the same by reaching an agreement with the former Steelers linebacker.
