Lamarcus Joyner receives non-exclusive tag from Rams

The Los Angeles Rams assigned the non-exclusive franchise tag to defensive back Lamarcus Joyner.

What It Means:

As a safety, Joyner will earn $11.287 million under the tag. The two sides have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal. This move means Sammy Watkins will become a free agent.

Joyner recorded 49 tackles (39 solo) with 9 pass deflections, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, and 1 defensive touchdown in 12 games last season.
