    Let's hope that is his way of saying he'd like to remain here and will "work" with the team to get a deal done.

      Hmmm not the type of video one makes when staying. Sounds like a goodbye to me. I'm sure he'd prefer to stay, but he also wants to get paid, and I just don't see any way the Rams can afford to do that.

          Gut feeling is his side says, we'll sign for $"X". Rams say we're not willing to offer $"X". Bah bye video gets made.

          We appreciate your time here Mike.

            You can't keep everyone. Let's hope Gaines can play. I love how Aaron Donald is quoted as saying "We have to do everything possible to keep him" Presumably, "Everything to keep him" does not include aaron donald making less money. I think Brockers has been a VERY underated Ram, sort of like saffold.

              The Rams have been killed by the run up middle for as long as I can remember. That's where he plays. The Rams can't keep running the same players out there year in year out and expect anything to change. This, for the Rams was a no brainers given their cap space and own free cagents.

                Hard to argue against that, true. I was thinking the Rams deficient run D was more a matter of overall scheme / design and not so much pointing to one or two elements of the DL. Thus, MB is IMHO, a valuable 'experienced asset'.

                Cap space casualty? Perhaps.

                    I saw a lot of analysts give the Rams grief for trading down and missing out on Fletcher Cox and Dontari Poe but Brockers has been more effective than both(though Cox has slightly better stats but has played way more).

                    Jenkins has got most of the hype but Brockers has played a huge part in our success.

                    Coach Jeff Fisher said the Rams made it through the game relatively clean and actually made mention of the Rams getting healthier, namely on the defensive front.

                    That means that DTs Michael Brockers and Matt Conrath could be back in the mix next week. Brockers, in particular, seems to be on track. He actually went through a pre-game warmup workout with strength coach Rock Gullickson. It looks good for the prized rookie’s return sooner than later.

                    Michael Brockers hopeful for long-term contract ..
                    by MauiRam
                    By Nick Wagoner

                    EARTH CITY, Mo. -- As the first draft pick of the Jeff Fisher and Les Snead era in St. Louis, Rams defensive tackle Michael Brockers figured to be a building block in the team's long-term aspirations.

                    The Rams made Brockers the No. 14 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft after trading down twice to add more picks. He was the third first-round pick added to a defensive line that has since added two more. But while the rest of those picks have had clearly defined roles in their time with the team, Brockers' job has been more of a moving target.

                    It has made for a difficult read on where Brockers fits best. He has been asked to gain weight to hold up better against the run and lose weight so he can be a better pass rusher in the span of a year.

                    But Brockers has at least one fit that he hopes to add to the list for the immediate and long-term future and that's staying a Ram well beyond the next two seasons.

                    "I am definitely hopeful I can get a long-term deal," Brockers said. "Being here with Fish, I love the team. Everybody wants to stay with one team their whole career. I know itís a business but at the same time, I love these guys here and I would love to stay here in St. Louis and be with these guys."

                    The Rams seem to share that opinion after choosing to exercise their fifth-year option to ensure Brockers is with the team at least through the 2016 season. That decision keeps Brockers from becoming a free agent after this year and will cost the Rams $6.146 million against the 2016 salary cap if the two sides don't work out a deal before then.

                    It would be a surprise if it came to that. Brockers' representatives and the Rams have engaged in some initial conversations about a deal, but nothing appears imminent. That doesn't mean something won't come together, though. Just last year, the Rams had exercised that same option on defensive end Robert Quinn and then signed him to a lucrative contract extension in Week 2, nearly a full year before the option would kick in.

                    "Iím going to let agents and GMs do what they have to do," Brockers said. "Iím going to try to stay back and get my eye on the field and what I have to do to get better."

                    Brockers' pursuit of improvement should be buoyed by the fact he finally seems to have a set role heading into 2015. Midway through 2014, the Rams moved Brockers to more of a nose tackle position, asking him to tie up multiple blockers to help free up rookie running mate Aaron Donald.

                    The move paid off as Donald posted nine sacks and went on to win the Defensive Rookie of the Year. Brockers' numbers took a hit as he dropped to 32 tackles and two sacks after 46 and 5.5 in 2013.

                    Although his new job doesn't come with much in the way of glamour or statistics, Brockers is embracing it.
