    Jason Brown Profile

    St. Louis Rams center Jason Brown has been informed by coach Jeff Fisher that he'll be released today, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

    The Rams abruptly replaced Brown with Tony Wragge at the end of last season despite Brown receiving high blocking grades from the coaching staff.

    Brown joined the Rams three years ago when he was signed to a five-year, $37.5 million contract that included $20 million in guaranteed money and made him the highest-paid center in the game.

    Under the terms of that deal, he's due a $5 million base salary and carries a $7.2 million salary-cap figure for next season.

    He started 46 games in three seasons for the Rams.

    A former Baltimore Ravens fourth-round draft pick from North Carolina, Brown, 28, has started 91 career games.

    The 6-foot-3, 320-pounder has built a reputation for his leverage, strength and technique.

    Kinda like taking 1 step back to go 2 steps forward. Suppose he was getting too much money...

      Good. I thought this would happen at the end of last season. This will save us around 2 million this year, and multiple millions next year!

        He was horrible the past two seasons, horribly out of shape, and overpowered by defensive lineman. He also can't move and doesn't fit into the running game schemes the Rams will run. Lets put that money to a good free agent upgrade.

          I wonder if this is a "take less or you're gone" scenario.

            I got some of that free agency fever coming on.

            COME ON FISHEAD, its time to earn your corn.

              The writing was on the wall really as soon as he was benched for Tony Wragge

                  Fisher is the real deal, I was pleading all year to fix this O line... That time has come.

                    Brown wanted to much green. As Donald Trump would say "Jason, your Fired"
