Today the Saint Louis Rams began trying to free up salaray cap room. Both Chris Long and Austin Pettis took pay cuts. The reason was unknown, until recently when Jason La Canfora reported the Rams are working on a deal for Robert Quinn.
@RavensInsider: $3 million of Chris Long $13.2M base salary converted into signing bonus for cap purposes. Base is now $10.2M, cap is $12.9M, from $14.9M
CBS’ Jason La Canfora reports the Rams have “exchanged some numbers” with RE Robert Quinn’s reps regarding a contract extension.
Quinn is under team control for two more years, but people believe Quinn will be paid big time.
