Rams Officially Release ILB Mark Barron



On Friday, the Los Angeles Rams officially announced the release of ILB Mark Barron.

According to Adam Schefter, the Rams are releasing ILB Mark Barron on Tuesday.

Barron was owed a $3 million roster bonus on March 15, but it appears the Rams felt it was best to give him a one-week head start on free agency.

Barron, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2012. Tampa Bay traded him to the Rams in 2015 for fourth- and sixth-round picks. 

The Rams ultimately declined to pick up his fifth-year option but re-signed him to a five-year, $45 million contract with $20 million guaranteed in 2016.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Barron will free up $6,333,333 of available cap space while creating $3,333,333 in dead money. 

In 2018, Barron appeared in 12 games for the Rams and recorded 60 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble, a pass defense and a safety.
