The Los Angeles Rams are re-signing defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. Contract terms are not known at this time.

On Saturday, we reported that the Rams were expected to re-sign Fowler. He cannot officially sign his contract with the team until March 13th when the new league-year starts.

The Rams acquired his services from the Jacksonville Jaguars for conditional 2019 third-round draft pick and a 2020 fifth-round draft pick. After being acquired, he appeared in eight regular season games with six starts.

Fowler Jr. hasn’t developed into the player that the Jaguars thought he would become with the third overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is just 24-years-old.

With Fowler Jr. re-signing, this signals the end of Ndamukong Suh’s tenure with the team. The high-priced defensive end signed a one-year deal with the franchise last off-season.

The St. Petersburg, Florida native had 21 tackles, including four tackles for a loss, and five quarterback hits. He also had 2.0 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and one pass deflection.

Before being traded to the Rams, he spent his entire football journey in the state of Florida. He played high school and college football, before being drafted by the Jaguars, where he spent two-plus seasons with the team.

With the Jaguars, he appeared in 39 games with one start. He had 62 tackles, including 14 tackles for a loss, and 22 quarterback hits. 

Fowler Jr. had 14.0 sacks, three forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, including one returned for a touchdown, and five pass deflections.
