Defensive tackle Michael Brockers is heading back to the Los Angeles Rams, his agent announced Friday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Brockers' new contract with the Rams will be a three-year deal worth up to $31.5 million, reports Rapoport.

Brockers was reportedly set to sign a three-year, $30-million pact with the Baltimore Ravens, but the team announced Tuesday that the two sides were unable to come to an agreement on the terms of a contract. A high ankle sprain Brockers sustained late in the 2019 season was flagged during a recent physical, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic.

Rams All-Pro defensive lineman Aaron Donald quickly tweeted a reaction to news of Brockers' return:

Brockers, 29, has been a consistent piece for the Rams' defense in recent years. He's amassed at least 50 tackles in each of the past three seasons and has missed just five games since entering the NFL as a first-round pick in 2012.

The LSU product had 63 tackles and three sacks in 2019.

Brockers had appeared to be one of the Ravens' most significant additions this offseason. Baltimore also traded for five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Calais Campbell earlier in March.
