WOW: RAMS CUT ALL PRO RB TODD GURLEY TO SAVE ON THE CAP!

By Harvey Hoffman

Todd Gurley is just 25 years old and is an All-Pro running back.

Just not now for the Los Angeles Rams.

Faced with a challenging salary-cap situation, the Rams have released running back Todd Gurley and linebacker Clay Matthews.

The Rams made Gurley, the 2017 NFL Offensive Player of the Year, the highest-paid running back in NFL history before the 2018 season — awarding him a four-year, $60 million extension that included $45 million in guarantees. At the time of the extension, Gurley had two seasons remaining on his rookie contract.

The release is accompanied by a heavy cost.

The Rams released Gurley with a post-June 1 designation, a source told ESPN’s Field Yates. That means the Rams will spread the dead-money cap charges ($11.75 million) over two seasons. The team will also see $5.5 million in cap savings that becomes available on June 2.
