The Rams have added an inside linebacker to their roster, agreeing to terms with Ramik Wilson on a one-year contract.
A Chiefs fourth-round pick out of Georgia in the 2015 draft, Wilson has played in 30 games in his career — all for Kansas City. The 25-year-old linebacker has recorded 112 tackles, one interception, three passes defensed, and a forced fumble.
Wilson received the most pro playing time during the 2016 season when he started 11 games. While he also started the first four games of 2017, Wilson was sidelined when Reggie Ragland took over for Kansas City at inside linebacker in early October. Wilson did, however, start the Chiefs' last game of the season when the club rested many of its starters against the Broncos. In that game, he returned a fumble by quarterback Paxton Lynch 11 yards for a touchdown.
The inside linebacker was set to become a restricted free agent when the new league year began last week. But the Chiefs declined to place a tender on Wilson, making him an unrestricted free agent able to sign with any team.
After playing as a backup in his first two years at Georgia, Wilson led the SEC with 133 tackles as a junior in 2013 — earning a first-team all-conference selection. He was a second-team All-SEC honoree in 2014 before entering the NFL Draft.
