The St. Louis Rams are one of the most intriguing young teams in the NFL, but today they announced that they would be bringing back a familiar face. According to reports, the Rams have agreed to a deal with veteran linebacker Will Witherspoon. He played with the Rams from 2006 to 2009 and ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed that the deal was in place.
Witherspoon joins James Laurinaitis, Jo-Lonn Dunbar and first-round pick Alec Ogletree in a very solid linebacker rotation for the Rams.
Last season in Tennessee, Witherspoon started five games and appeared in 15. He was able to total 7 tackles and an interception return for a touchdown.
Witherspoon will provide some great veteran leadership for the younger linebackers on the team and his presence in the rotation will only solidify what is an already improved Rams defensive unit.
