The Rams acquired Barron from the Buccaneers in a trade midseason last year for a fourth- and sixth-round pick in this year’s draft.
He started all seven games he was with the Rams in 2014.
The Rams will evaluate Barron's play in 2015 before deciding if they'll pursue a new contract.
However, now that the shock has worn off, Barron is excited for a new start with the Rams, particularly because he feels he is better suited for St. Louis' defensive scheme, per ESPN.
"Did I think we could have been doing more, using me more? Yeah, I do," Barron said of his defensive role with the Bucs. "But I wouldn’t say it played against my strengths. It was just the way the system was ran.
"[Tampa's system] is passive. That’s kind of the only thing I didn’t like about it. A lot of times I had to sit back and I couldn’t really be as aggressive as I wanted to in that system."
Details of the trade were not immediately available.
The other questionables are safety
Defensive end Larry English (hamstring), wide receiver Mike Evans (groin) and safety Dashon Goldson (ankle).
