Reports: Rams land G Jonah Jackson, TE Colby Parkinson


The Los Angeles Rams reached agreement on three-year deals for interior offensive lineman Jonah Jackson and tight end Colby Parkinson, ESPN and NFL Network reported Monday.

The Rams lured Jackson away from Detroit on a deal worth $51 million, including $34 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network.

Parkinson comes over from Seattle on a deal worth $22.5 million, including $15.5 million guaranteed, per ESPN.

Jackson, 27, started all 57 games he played in with the Lions since they selected him in the third round of the 2020 draft.

The Rams also re-signed guard Kevin Dotson last week on a reported three-year deal worth $48 million.

Parkinson, 25, caught 25 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in 17 games (one start) for Seattle last season, playing behind Noah Fant and Will Dissly.

The Rams add Parkinson less than two months after Tyler Higbee tore multiple ligaments in his right knee in the divisional playoff loss at Detroit.

Higbee signed a two-year extension worth $27 million — $17 million guaranteed — last September but head coach Sean McVay said he is likely a candidate for the physically unable to perform list to start next season.

Parkinson has 57 career catches and four TDs in 54 games (four starts).
