The Rams have released starting inside linebacker Mark Barron, league sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN on Tuesday.
Barron, who was signed through 2020, had 43 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in 2018.
The Rams save $6.33 million on their salary cap with the move and will carry a dead-money charge of $3.33 million. If they designate Barron a post-June 1 release they will save $8 million on their salary cap. Barron was scheduled to receive a base salary of $5 million in 2019.
