This is a solid move for the Rams, who saw Fowler take big positive strides toward the end of last season and into the postseason. He was traded from Jacksonville for a third-round pick ahead of the deadline last season and will now remain in Los Angeles for the foreseeable future.
The former No. 3 pick of the 2015 NFL Draft only had four sacks during the 2018 season, but he was a defensive catalyst during the playoffs, tallying 1.5 sacks and 12 tackles.
