Former Patriots Linebacker Akeem Ayers has signed a 2 year deal with the St. Louis Rams, the team announced.

The Patriots traded their 6th round pick to the Titans for Ayers and a 7th round pick in return in October.

Ayers spent 3 seasons with the Titans before the trade and was valuable to the Patriots defense, especially the banged up linebacker core.

Ayers started in 4 of the 9 games he played in. He had 20 tackles (16 solo), 4 sacks, and 1 interception.

Ayers joins a QB pressure happy defense where he will fit right in. I expect him to do good things in Missouri.

Good for Ayers and wish him nothing but the best and thanks for the Championship ride!
