Rams release three including TE Jared Cook-- Fri Feb 19 4:00 pm --
DE Chris Long, LB James Laurinaitis also cut
The team released defensive end Chris Long, linebacker James Laurinaitis and tight end Jared Cook on Friday. The club later confirmed the moves.
"This is the time of year when all NFL teams are faced with difficult decisions regarding their veteran players," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement
FF Today's Take:The team will save roughly $25 million in cap space with the cuts while absorbing $4.7 million in dead money. Cook was set to count $8.3 million against the cap and while he's shown flashes of play-making ability he never became a consistent producer in the Rams offense.
