The Rams continue to overhaul their roster before the start of the league year. According to ESPN insider Adam Schefter, the Rams plan on releasing Leonard Floyd this Friday.
Floyd, a former first-round pick from Georgia, has been on the Rams for the past three years. During the 2022 season, Floyd had 59 total tackles, 22 quarterback hits, nine sacks and a fumble recovery. Floyd had a $22 million cap hit for the 2023 season.
Releasing him will save $15.5 million in cap space if it comes with a post-June 1 designation. The Rams have already released All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner.
Rams are planning to release OLB Leonard Floyd today, per source.
