Todd Gurley is no longer a Los Angeles Ram. On Thursday, the Rams released the former All-Pro running back. The Rams would have owed Gurley $10.5 million if he was still on the team’s roster at 4 p.m. ET.
Just before the official start of free agency, reports surfaced about the Rams’ desire to trade Gurley, who had three years remaining on his current contract. In 2018, he signed a four-year, $60 million extension that included $45 million guaranteed that at the time made him the NFL’s highest-paid running back.
Despite his production with the Rams, Gurley’s health has been a major question mark since the end of the 2018 season. Gurley’s trainer, Travelle Gaines, told CBS Sports last offseason that his client is dealing with an “arthritic component to his knee.” Gurley’s health situation became a hot-button topic after he received just 12 touches in the Rams’ loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.
