1. Michael Brockers
Going back to the St. Louis days, Michael Brockers has spent his entire career as a member of the Rams since the team used a first-round pick on the defensive tackle back in 2012.
Talent wise, Brockers is nowhere close to the same level as other current members of the defense such as Aaron Donald, but he certainly has made his presence felt on numerous occasions over the last seven seasons.
With that being said, the hefty price tag Brockers brings to the table arguably doesn’t match the production the veteran put together during the 2018 season since he only recorded one sack while starting all 16 games.
As bad as it sounds, Brockers seems like the kind of player who could have taken advantage of opponents focusing most of their attention on the whereabouts of Donald, but at least he still seems to have some gas left in that old tank of his.
Between the money it would save along with the upgrade on defense with Clowney, this scenario with Brockers would seem like a no brainer for the Rams if the opportunity presented itself.
Los Angeles doesn’t seem to have as great of a chance to land Clowney as a few other teams that would seem worthy of getting in on the action, but officially ruling the Rams out of a potential trade seems foolish with this team’s history of pulling off key moves when least expected.
