The Bengals got the first meeting with defensive tackle Nick Fairley after free agency opened, but it won’t be the last one that Fairley takes.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Fairley is now headed for a visit with the Rams. If Fairley does end up joining the Rams defensive line, it will be a case of the rich getting richer.

The Rams have recent first-round picks Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers at defensive tackle at the moment, so adding Fairley doesn’t really fall into the necessity column but adding him to the rotation would make for a constant stream of fresh and talented players in the middle of the defensive line.

St. Louis has a similar rotation at defensive end with Robert Quinn, Chris Long and William Hayes, so opposing offenses would certainly have their hands full trying to control things at the line of scrimmage should Fairley end up joining the Rams.
