The Rams re-signed offensive tackle Joe Noteboom, his agents announced Monday. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the pact is a three-year deal with a base value of $40 million, including $25 million guaranteed, per a source informed of the contract. With incentives, the deal has a max value of $47.5 million.
Los Angeles also announced it agreed to terms with center Brian Allen on a three-year contract. Allen started 16 games for the Rams during the regular season ahead of their Super Bowl run.
Noteboom started two games in place of Whitworth in 2021. The former third-round pick has started 17 games in his career and appeared in 47 tilts.
The 26-year-old performed well in place of Whitworth, giving the Rams confidence he could be a full-time starter. Giving Noteboom $13 million per year underscores their faith in him moving forward and the type of market he would have had if he made it to free agency.
