The Los Angeles Rams, fresh off landing free safety Eric Weddle, have retained pass rusher Dante Fowler Jr., the team announced on Sunday night.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports it’s a one-year deal.

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.
