It took a while, but former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Cam Thomas has finally found a new home.
According to his agent, Thomas has agreed to a contract with the Los Angeles Rams after playing two seasons in Pittsburgh with the Steelers. While no financial details have been released, it’s a good bet that Thomas signed a one-year deal for the veteran league minimum.

Thomas, who entered the league in 2010 with the San Diego Chargers as a fifth-round draft pick, recorded 29 total tackles during his two seasons with the Steelers that included him dressing and playing in all 32 regular season games during that span.
Thomas certainly won’t be missed in Pittsburgh and the team has since signed former Chargers defensive lineman Ricardo Mathews and drafted defensive tackle Javon Hargrave in order to help strengthen the depth of their defensive line.
The loss of Thomas via free agency to the Rams will also not factor into the 2017 compensatory formula being as the transaction took place after the May deadline.
