Rams News: San Francisco 49ers Take Samson Ebukam Away From LA

The Rams already had their day ruined when they lost John Johnson to the Cleveland Browns, but that day just got worse. OLB Samson Ebukam will remain in the NFC West with the San Francisco 49ers. According ESPN reporter Nick Wagoner, the 49ers  and Ebukam have agreed to terms on a two-year deal worth $12 million. He could earn up to $13.5 million with incentives. 

In four seasons with the Rams, Ebukam has recorded 14 sacks, 28 QB hits, 4 fumble recoveries, and 150 total tackles. While the Rams had the No. ranked defense last season, the team has not lost two of their key players already with the possibility of losing more. The 25-year old’s departure hurts even more when you see that he never missed a game since joining the Rams back in 2017, the same draft that also netted Los Angeles John Johnson. 


While the Rams could certainly still produce a top ranked defense this upcoming season, they lost their defensive coordinator and some big time players. However, any team that poses Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey can and will compete against every team in the league.
