Las Vegas Raiders: Top-10 free agents still available
By Evan Groat
In what came as a surprise to many, the Los Angeles Rams decided to release two time all-pro running back Todd Gurley. Since signing his monster deal, Gurley has not been the same player, and the team insists this has nothing to do with his knee, but was more of a salary cap move.
In 2018, Gurley signed a four year, $60 million dollar contract with $45 million in guaranteed money. On Thursday the Rams parted ways with Gurley, saving themselves from having to pay him an additional $10.5 million.
Gurley is a stud and is only 25 years old. The issue for teams who might be interested is lingering knee issues that limited him to only 223 carries for 857 yards in 2019. Don’t expect him to last long on the open market. The Raiders may not need help at running back, but there are plenty of teams out there that do.
