    Right you are, they had a roster exemption for Dunbar, so no one can be added, my oversight.

    Go Rams!

    Re: Rams release LB Dunbar

    I think Wagoner summed up the most likely reason in the article Rambos just posted:

    But here's the easy bottom line explanation. By releasing Dunbar now, the Rams can be cap-compliant tonight and it gives them the opportunity to bring him back after week one on a non-guaranteed contract. The suspension clock begins this week whether Dunbar is with a team or not. Week 5 is still the scheduled return date for Dunbar no matter what team he is on.

    Theoretically, the Rams could bring him back next week on a non-guaranteed deal at a reduced rate, place him back on the reserve/suspended list and would then have him back in time for Week 5. They could also bring him back closer to the Oct. 6 game against Jacksonville when he'd again be eligible to play.
    Freeing up cap room + possibility of signing him back to a non-guaranteed contact = smart financial move.

    Hmm, interesting. I wonder how Dunbar feels about this whole issue.

    He certainly has no leverage if he's the one who got himself into this mess in the first place.
