Rams re-sign DT Easley to 1-year deal
- On Thursday, the Los Angeles Rams re-signed DT Dominique Easley to a one-year, $1.797 million deal. Quietly, on a per-snap basis, Easley has been one of the more productive defensive interior players in the NFL.
- He had overall grades of 79.1 (ranked 26th) and 82.6 (not enough snaps to qualify) in 2016 and 2015, respectively.
- Easley moved around in 2016, showing versatility — he played 38.1 percent of snaps over the LG, 35.3 percent over the RG, and 17.2 percent over either tackle.
- While it may be impossible to replicate the play of teammate Aaron Donald, since being signed by the Rams, Easley has proved to be a productive player that the Patriots cut bait on.
