Every fan of the Los Angeles Rams has been staring at their phone for an unhealthy amount of time in the past couple of weeks awaiting the news of where Bobby Wagner will sign. After weighing his options, Wagner has chosen to play close to home, joining forces with the reigning Super Bowl champions to defend their title.
The Rams are getting an All-Pro level linebacker (albeit one that will be 32 years old in June) to bolster the middle of their defense. Besides getting one of the league’s inside linebackers, Los Angeles is getting a savvy linebacker that can aid the development of Ernest Jones.
Jones, a third-round pick by the Rams in the 2021 NFL Draft out of South Carolina, flashed tons of upside this past season. In 15 games (seven starts), Jones logged 61 combined tackles, four pass breakups, two interceptions, and one sack.
Sadly, in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings, Jones suffered an ankle injury that would sideline him for a few weeks. But in the NFC title game and the Super Bowl, Jones would combine for nine tackles, one pass breakup, and a sack.How the Rams signing Bobby Wagner aids Ernest Jones' development Click To Tweet
