With new inside linebacker Bobby Wagner joining the Los Angeles Rams, the team appears set at the position heading into the 2022 season.

Linebacker has been an area of weakness for the Rams the past several seasons as they have opted to pour resources into other personnel groupings like wide receiver. However, when a player like Wagner became available, they knew they needed to shift strategies and go after a player that can legitimately move the needle on defense.

Los Angeles was able to scrape by at linebacker during the 2021 season, especially when rookie Ernest Jones came on strong toward the middle of the year. For the most part, the Rams stuck with Troy Reeder, who they did not end up tending as a restricted free agent in the offseason.

It was a sign that Reeder’s time with the Rams was coming to an end, but fortunately, it looks like he gets to stick in L.A. after signing a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Chargers, per Mike Kaye of Pro Football Network:
