The Rams and Floyd agreed to terms on a four-year, $64 million contract Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. During his first four seasons with the Bears, Floyd compiled 18.5 sacks in 54 games, but after breaking out with 10.5 in 16 contests with the Rams he's struck it big. He'll continue to work in tandem with three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald along the L.A.'s fearsome front line.
Floyd appeared in all 16 regular-season games with the Rams in 2020, setting career-high marks in total tackles (55) and sacks (10.5). He also added two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble. Not only were Floyd's 10.5 sacks a personal best, but the total was higher than what he posted in his previous two seasons with the Bears combined. Now set to hit free agency following a breakout season, Floyd looks to be in prime position to receive a sizable contract on the open market.
Floyd returned to Saturday's wild-card game against the Seahawks after being evaluated for a concussion, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Floyd was disruptive before his initial departure, recording a sack and two quarterback hits. The fifth-year linebacker will continue to handle a starter's workload for the remainder of the game.
Floyd (concussion) is questionable to return to the Rams' wild-card matchup Saturday against the Seahawks, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Floyd appeared to sustain the potential concussion during the second quarter. He had one sack and two quarterback hits before leaving the game.
Floyd (abdomen) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Floyd was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale, but he'll be available to host the Cardinals. The 28-year-old hasn't played less than 85 defensive snaps in a game he's suited up for this season.
