The Los Angeles Rams are expected to release former Georgia Bulldogs outside linebacker Leonard Floyd this offseason. The Rams are also looking to trade Floyd.
The Rams could release Floyd as a post-June 1 designation and save $15.5 million in cap space this offseason.
Los Angeles would still have $6.5 million in dead cap for the 2023 season due to Floyd’s contract.
Leonard Floyd has 29 total sacks and an interception over the past three seasons with the Rams.
Floyd recorded 59 tackles and 9.0 sacks in 2022 for Los Angeles, but the Rams struggled and went just 5-12.
Floyd is still productive, so he could be worth trading for,
but he is scheduled $22 million or more cap hits in each of the next two seasons.
Leonard Floyd’s ideal destination is probably as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense.
Los Angeles signed Leonard Floyd to a four-year, $64 million contract after the 2020 NFL season.
Floyd and Los Angeles won a Super Bowl in 2021.
