SportsPulse: Our draft guru Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz tells you the five guys you need to know ahead of April’s draft that shined at the combine and could become instant stars in the NFL.
After falling to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, the Los Angeles Rams are once again undergoing significant offseason changes.
The team released staring inside linebacker Mark Barron and declined the option on starting center John Sullivan’s contract, according to ESPN and NFL Network.
Barron, 29, was due a $3 million roster bonus on March 15, two days after the start of the league year. By releasing him, the Rams saved $6.33 million toward the cap.
Sullivan, 33, started all but one game for Los Angeles since arriving as a free agent in 2017.
The changes could be the first of many for the Rams this offseason, as defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, safety Lamarcus Joyner, outside linebacker Dante Fowler and offensive guard Rodger Saffold are among the notable players set to become free agents.
