Rams acquire Jags DE Fowler for two picks


The Los Angeles Rams acquired defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. from the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday for a 2019 third-round pick and 2020 fifth-round pick, both teams announced.

According to multiple reports, the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers also had interest in Fowler, but the Rams offered the best deal.

Fowler, who will play outside linebacker in the Rams' 3-4 scheme, was taken third overall in 2015 and is entering the final year of his rookie deal after the Jaguars declined his fifth-year option.

He has two sacks and a forced fumble in seven games this season after tallying eight sacks and three forced fumbles last year.

The 24-year-old totaled 14 sacks in 39 career games (one start) as a pass-rush specialist in Jacksonville, after missing his entire rookie season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

The Rams were looking for help on the edge, as only two of the team's 22 sacks have come from an outside linebacker, both by Samson Ebukam.

L.A. has been aggressive in the trade market recently, having acquired wideout Brandin Cooks and cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib this offseason while dealing away outside linebacker Robert Quinn and inside linebacker Alec Ogletree.
