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.
Floyd (abdomen) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Floyd went to the hospital Friday as a precautionary measure after experiencing abdominal pain. The Rams didn't provide further details. If he's ultimately inactive for Sunday's divisional tilt, Justin Hollins likely will start in Floyd's place, while Ogbonnia Okoronkwo could enjoy a substantial increase in reps.
Floyd had five tackles (all solo), three sacks and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 23-16 win over the Rams.
The 28-year-old was a one-man wrecking crew Sunday, as he registered five hits on quarterback Russell Wilson. Floyd has already tied his career high with seven sacks through nine games this season.
Floyd (knee) is active heading into Sunday's matchup against the Seahawks.
Floyd entered the weekend labeled as questionable, but he ultimately showed enough during pregame warmups to earn the nod for a crucial Week 10 divisional clash. He sat out Thursday's practice session entirely, but a return to full participation Friday provided optimism that the linebacker would be able to suit up. With four sacks, 23 tackles and a fumble recovery on the 2020 campaign, Floyd readies for a showdown with Seattle's No. 1 scoring offense.
Floyd (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.
Floyd was a non-participant in Thursday's practice but upgraded to full participation Friday. That gives him a good chance to play Sunday. If he suffers a setback and is ultimately ruled out, however, Terrell Lewis (shoulder), who is also considered questionable, would be next up while Jachai Polite could get some reps as well.
Floyd recorded six tackles (four solo), two sacks and three quarterback hits during Monday's 24-10 win over Chicago.
Floyd spent four years with the Bears after being selected in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, so the first-year Ram clearly capitalized on some additional motivation to post his best fantasy showing of the season Monday. It's been an inconsistent start to the campaign for Floyd, but he's playing nearly every defensive snap, and this outing could be a springboard for the coming weeks -- especially with the Los Angeles defense appearing to be trending in the right direction.
Floyd recorded four tackles (two solo), a sack and a tackle for a loss during Sunday's 20-17 win over Dallas.
It was a strong first game with Los Angeles for Floyd. He played 68 of 72 defensive snaps and could prove to be a solid pass rusher for the Rams and potential IDP fantasy target in deeper settings. A fresh start might be just what the 2016 first-round selection needed.
Floyd agreed Wednesday with the Rams on a one-year, $10 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Released by Chicago on Tuesday, the 27-year-old now steps in as a replacement at outside linebacker for Dante Fowler, who is leaving Los Angeles for Atlanta. Teams around the league have been playing musical chairs with pass rushers, and it's hard to sell this as anything but a downgrade for the Rams, though they'll at least save some cap space in the process. Floyd was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2016 draft, but he produced just 18.5 sacks and 44 quarterback hits in 54 regular-season games with the Bears. His contract can go up to $13 million with incentives.
The Bears will release Floyd, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Yates notes that Floyd was due $13.22 million on his fifth-year option, a sum that would have become guaranteed Wednesday. The move to part ways with the 2016 first-rounder frees up salary cap space for the Bears' pending signing of Robert Quinn.
Floyd posted one stop in the Bears' 21-19 victory over the Vikings in Week 17, and he finished the year with 40 tackles and three sacks.
For the second straight year, Floyd played in all 16 games, but, unfortunately, he posted a career-low in sacks and he's never had fewer tackles per game. He'll enter the last season of his five-year contract with the Bears in 2020, but he won't be a recommended fantasy option in typical leagues.
Floyd (ribs) wasn't listed on Monday's injury report, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Floyd suffered a rib injury during last Thursday's win over the Lions, but it doesn't appear as though the injury will impact his status for this week. The 27-year-old should play his near every-down role Thursday against the Cowboys.
Floyd suffered a rib injury during Thursday's 24-20 win over the Lions, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
The fourth-year linebacker had an X-ray during the game but ended up returning, and he didn't appear hindered, as he logged an 82-percent snap share during the Thanksgiving Day contest. It'll be worth monitoring his practice status leading up to this Thursday's matchup against the Cowboys.
Floyd recorded a sack and six tackles in Chicago's 22-14 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
With the Eagles leading this game throughout, they ran the ball 35 times, which led to Floyd posting a season-high in tackles. In addition, his third sack of the season was the first one he's posted since Week 1, and he's been a disappointing fantasy option due to his inability to generate consistent sack numbers.
Floyd notched a pair of sacks while adding four tackles in the Bears' loss to the Packers on Thursday.
With the Chicago defense looking as strong as ever, Floyd led the charge by posting two of the team's five sacks. After recording just 8.5 sacks over the past two seasons, he's looking to return to the level of player who had seven sacks in 12 games as a rookie in 2016. For those hurting for pass rushers in IDP leagues, Floyd could be worth adding to see if he can build off his strong performance as defenses key on Khalil Mack.
Floyd was rested during the Bears' 27-17 victory over the Colts on Saturday.
Going into his second year playing alongside Khalil Mack, it's possible that Floyd re-establishes himself as a strong pass rusher, and although he's not a hot commodity in IDP leagues, he's a player who can be drafted for potential and upside. In shallow leagues, he'll be a player to monitor on the waiver wire.
The Bears officially exercised the fifth-year option on Floyd's rookie contract Wednesday, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.
The Georgia product put together a complete 16-game season for the first time in his career in 2018 after missing at least four games in both of his first two seasons. While the 2016 first-round pick is no longer playing under the oversight of defensive guru Vic Fangio, Floyd remains set to serve in a starting edge role opposite superstar Khalil Mack. In that same role last season, Floyd produced 47 tackles, four sacks and a pick-six.
