The Los Angeles Rams agreed to terms with running back Lance Dunbar, multiple outlets reported on Thursday.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but ESPN’s Adam Caplan reported that it’s a one-year deal worth up to $3 million.
Dunbar, who met with the Rams on Wednesday, returned from a torn ACL injury that ended his 2015 season and played in a limited role over 13 games behind rookie Ezekiel Elliott with the Dallas Cowboys.
The 27-year-old Dunbar rushed nine times for 31 yards and a touchdown and reeled in 16 catches for 122 yards in 2016.
Los Angeles’ Todd Gurley struggled to get on track after a sterling rookie season in 2015, rushing for 885 yards and six touchdowns last season. Benny Cunningham served as Gurley’s backup in 2016, but was placed on injured reserve for the final three games of the season with a neck injury.
Malcolm Brown is the lone other back that received carries last season currently under contract with the Rams.
Dunbar is the fourth free agent to join Los Angeles this offseason, joining wide receiver Robert Woods, offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth and cornerback Kayvon Webster
