Breaking: Detroit Lions’ Offensive guard agree deal to join Rams in a $34 million blockbuster trade

Jonah Jackson, a Detroit Lions player, is reportedly signing with the Los Angeles Rams. Jonah Jackson, an offensive lineman, is allegedly joining Matthew Stafford in Los Angeles.

On Monday, NFL insider Mike Garafolo reported that Jackson will sign a three-year, $51 million contract with the Rams, with $34 million guaranteed.

Standing at 6 feet 4 inches tall, the 27-year-old Ohio State player was taken 75th overall by the Lions in the 2020 NFL draft. Jackson worked briefly with Stafford before being traded to the Rams in 2021.

Jackson started 57 games for the Lions over his first four NFL seasons, most notably at left guard. He made the Pro Bowl following the 2021 season.

Last season, the Rams’ starting guards were rookie left guard Steve Avila and right guard Kevin Dotson, who signed last week to a three-year, $48 million contract to return to Los Angeles. Jackson’s arrival could indicate that the Rams intend to move Avila to center, where he previously played in college at TCU before switching to guard.

The Lions had a historic season, winning their first playoffs in almost 30 years and defeating the Rams in the first round. The squad advanced to the NFC Championship before losing to the San Francisco 49ers.
