These moves clear just over $9M of cap space for the Rams, who are in need of a completely rebuild for their offensive line in order to protect young QB Sam Bradford.
Brown has performed poorly since signing his current contract, and was ultimately benched. Contrast this with the pair of defensive linemen, who have played quite well, especially Robbins.
Brown could get a call from the Ravens, where he has played in the past, especially should they fail to bring back Ben Grubbs.
Robbins and Bannan join an already talented and deep DT class in this free agent period. That fact, coupled with Robbins’ less-than-well-documented success could make him a strong, if quiet, signing for a club seeking bargains.
