McLeod recovered a fumble and ran it back for a touchdown in Sunday's 24-6 victory against Cleveland. McLeod is having a fairly solid year, with 29 tackles, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery in addition to his touchdown. He's about on pace to match last season's 72 tackles, which seems about right for the fourth-year safety.
The Rams have reportedly signed safety Rodney McLeod and tight end Cory Harkey to their restricted free agent tenders, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan. Harkey had eight catches for 55 yards and a touchdown last season while McLeod totaled 72 tackles with two interceptions in 16 games.
The Rams placed a second-round tender on safety Rodney McLeod, per Field Yates of ESPN. McLeod, who was eligible for restricted free agency, will now make $2.356 million next season. He registered 72 tackles, two forced fumbles and two interceptions last season.
The Rams will have their probable players Week 10 against the Cardinals. Jo-Lonn Dunbar, E.J. Gaines, Cory Harkey, William Hayes and Rodney McLeod will all play.
