LB Mark Barron released by Rams
The Los Angeles Rams made a surprising move ahead of the beginning of the new league year.
The Rams released linebacker Mark Barron, who was set to make $8 million in 2019. Barron carries a dead cap value of $2 million.
Barron signed a 5-year, $45 million deal with the team in 2016 and ended up playing three seasons for the club. He had 60 tackles and a sack for the team last season and missed the first four games due to an ankle injury.
A former first-round pick by Tampa Bay, Barron will likely find a new team quickly.
