The Los Angeles Rams shake up the roster even more by cutting LB Clay Matthews, according to NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo.
The move was announced shortly after the Rams cut RB Todd Gurley. This string of cuts are a result of the lack of cap space. By cutting Matthews, the Rams will save about $5.75 million.
It is a surprising move considering the Rams recently lost Dante Fowler. Although the Rams did sign Leonard Floyd, this opens another position to replace. Expect the Rams to look for EDGEs in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Matthews signed a 2-year contract with the Rams last season. He wasn’t expected to contribute much after having a down season with the Green Bay Packers. He did manage to earn 37 tackles, nine tackles for a loss, eight sacks and two forced fumbles.
It’s unclear what the future has in store for the 11-year pro. But despite playing 10 seasons with the Packers and a season with the Rams, it seems Matthews still has something left in the tank.
