The Facts: Following up on a previous item. ... Brown will remain in Los Angeles. The Rams are matching the Detroit Lions' two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet for the restricted free agent running backs.
Diehards Line: The Lions signed Brown to the offer sheet earlier this week and L.A. had until Monday to match it. The running back's deal includes $1 million guaranteed and a $100,000 signing bonus, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown's 2018 campaign ended on injured reserve after suffering a clavicle injury in Week 13 against the Lions. Prior to his injury, he played 15 percent of the Rams' offensive snaps and added 264 yards from scrimmage, along with one receiving touchdown. Having Brown back in the mix bodes well for the Rams' backfield in 2019.
