Brockers was a player the Ravens targeted, and they were excited to plug him alongside recent trade acquisition Calais Campbell and nose tackle Brandon Williams in what could be a formidable defensive line.

Brockers' agent, Scott Casterline, told The Associated Press on Friday that a tentative deal is in place for Brockers to return to the Rams.

Rapoport noted that the three-year deal in L.A.is worth up to $31.5 million in maximum value, similar to what was on the table in Baltimore.

Brockers, 29, reached agreement on a three-year, $30 million with Baltimore on March 16, the first day of the NFL's negotiating period. However, it's worth noting that the Ravens were set to give him $21MM fully guaranteed and the locked-in dollar amount of Brockers' new Rams deal is not yet known. The Ravens, meanwhile, are in a bit of a tough spot. The Ravens then watched defensive tackle Michael Pierce sign with the Vikings and traded defensive end Chris Wormley to the Steelers.

There are still some solid defensive linemen available in free agency, but Brockers was a prime addition.

Defensive tackle Aaron Donald was happy to see his old teammate back.

Most NFL employees are barred from entering team facilities due to the coronavirus outbreak, and the restrictions kept Baltimore's team doctors from examining Brockers.

Now the Ravens have to work on a Plan B.
