Rams are releasing RB Todd Gurley, per source. Cutting him today spares the Rams from having to pay him an additional $10.5 million due today. Rams spent weeks exploring a trade for him. Now Gurley will be free to sign with any team.
Letting Todd Gurley go costs the Rams $2.9 million against the cap, leaving $20.15 million in dead money, but they would have had to pay a $10.5 million roster bonus soon. Although only 25 years old, Gurley has had prolonged knee issues that have plagued him over the past two seasons. Add him to an already interesting RB free agent pool.
