The La Rams announced on Sunday that they have agreed to terms on a new deal with external linebacker Dante Fowler Jr..

The club didn’t release provisions, but also a source told ’s Adam Schefter the deal is for a single year.

Even the Rams, with a pressing need for a border rusher, performed a transaction for Fowler using all the Jacksonville Jaguars ahead of this deadline last season in exchange for a third-round draft pick in 20-19 and a fifth-round selection in 2020.

Fowler, 2-4, played in 11 games for the Rams after the commerce, including three in the postseason, also made eight starts. In his six regular-season Start S, Fowler ended with a pass deflection, fumble recovery, two sacks and five quarterback strikes.

In Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks, Fowler strip-sacked Russell Wilson and recovered the fumble midway through the fourth quarter. The Rams play on the subsequent play to ensure a success. In the NFC Championship Game, the 6-foot-3,” 255-pound Fowler had a important pressure on Drew Brees that pushed the veteran Saints quarterback to throw an errant pass that was intercepted in overtime.

Even the Jaguars selected Fowler out of Florida using the 3rd overall pick at the 2015 draft, but closing May declined to pick up the fifth-year option for his rookie contract. Fowler didn’t play with his rookie season due to a torn ACL. He had four sacks in 2016 and eight sacks in 20 17. Fowler played in seven games with the Jaguars last season and collected two sacks before he was traded to the Rams.

He had a long set of off-the-field issues with the Jaguars but hadn’t any known such difficulties with the Rams. Back in 2016, Fowler was seized on television apparently refereeing a struggle between his girl friend and the mother of his kid. The charges were later dropped.

Fowler was involved in a number of fights during Jaguars practices and was suspended for one week during training camp. He was suspended for his 2018 season-opener when he pleaded no contest to charges of battery, criminal mischief and petit thief following an arrest in July 20 17 within his hometown of St. Petersburg, Florida. Fowler was issued more than 10 traffic citations on the course of 2 decades.
