    Time to start clearing Cap: Rams Release OT Wayne Hunter, Save 4M

    Per JT

    Rams have released OT Wayne Hunter. Saves St. Louis $4 million in cap space.
    Let's go. Cut the dead weight and let's use the space for some real talent.

    Like say, this man:

    While i certainly agree with the decision to release Hunter, i will say that he performed much better than i expected, and certainly better than the Biblical Bust of Titanic Proportion, Jason Smith.

    ramming speed to all

    I think everybody saw this one coming. I still think the Rams will resign Sjax before FA starts.

    Hunter's release and Rams' contracts
    March, 6, 2013
    By Mike Sando | ESPN.com

    Wayne Hunter, one of 16 players to start on the St. Louis Rams' offensive line over the past two seasons, was scheduled to earn $4 million in 2013.

    The Rams weren't going to pay that much for a backup tackle. They made it official Wednesday by releasing Hunter, according to Jim Thomas. The Rams and the New York Jets have now released the two offensive tackles they swapped last season. The Jets had sent Hunter to St. Louis for Jason Smith.

    Hunter was one of 10 players scheduled to count at least $4 million against the Rams' salary cap in 2013. Another, running back Steven Jackson, will reportedly void his contract when free agency begins Monday. That will remove a $7 million charge from the books for 2013.

    Of the other players listed, safety Quintin Mikell jumps out the most. His $9 million cap charge is more than double what it was in each of the previous two seasons. The team must account for $6 million in prorated bonus charges over the next two seasons whether or not Mikell is on the roster.

    Teams must comply with the $123.9 million salary cap by March 12. Releasing Hunter and having Jackson hit the market will allow the Rams to comply with millions to spare.
