The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the team will decline the option on Barron, who was taken No. 7 overall in 2012. The Rams acquired the safety in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last October.
I cannot blame the Rams, because it would cost them 8.263 million for 2016, because Barron was drafted in the Top 10. The formula for calculating the fifth-year option is derived by averaging the 10 highest-paid players at the position, whereas picks No. 11-32 use the top 25 paid players at the position.
