Vanderbilt linebacker Darreon Herring is a Los Angeles Ram. He signed a free agent deal with the NFC West team shortly after the conclusion of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Tennessean's Adam Sparks confirmed the news early on Sunday morning.

Herring recorded 226 career tackles (11 for loss) as a Commodore and was one of the team's leaders on and off the field. He never missed a game at Vanderbilt, breaking into the team's defensive rotation as a true freshman and developing into a starter one season later. He's a versatile defender who can be helpful against both the pass and the run.

He'll join fellow undrafted teammates Steven Scheu (Patriots), Caleb Azubike (Cowboys), Jake Bernstein (Chiefs), and Andrew Williamson (Colts) at NFL training camps this summer.
