Report: Dominique Easley working out for Rams
Defensive tackle Dominique Easley’s quest to find a new team for the 2016 season has reportedly taken him to Los Angeles.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Easley is working out for the Rams on Tuesday.
Easley was waived by the Patriots in April, less than two years after New England made him a first-round pick in the 2014 draft. Easley showed some promise when healthy, but missed 10 games due to injury over his first two NFL seasons and reports of issues in the locker room bubbled up after the Patriots sent him packing.
Easley has also worked out for the Bengals since his departure from the Patriots. Falcons coach Dan Quinn, who coached Easley at the University of Florida, said he spoke to Easley after he became a free agent and thinks highly of him, but there hasn’t been any other word on potential interest from Atlanta.
The Rams have a pair of former first-round picks at defensive tackle in Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers, but could use some more depth after Nick Fairley’s departure as a free agent this offseason.
