Rams Cut Gurley To Save $10.5 Mill, Falcons To Sign Him, Matthews Cut, Foles A Bear, The Ocho Returns


In a big NFL free-agency move, the Los Angeles Rams cut running back Todd Gurley ahead of a deadline that would have guaranteed him $10.5 million. Gurley made $38.5 million since he entered the NFL in 2015 as the #10 pick and is still owed a $7.55 million bonus this year. In breaking news, the Atlanta Falcons just announced on Twitter they were signing Gurley.

The Rams also released linebacker Clay Matthews hours before he was supposed to earn a bonus of $2 million.

The Chicago Bears had a big trade yesterday bringing quarterback Nick Foles over from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Foles only played for the Jags for one season and only started four games (winning none of them).


ESPN2 will air their fourth edition of ESPN8: The Ocho on Sunday, March 22nd. The event features 24-hours of “the world’s most bizarre, innovative and entertaining sports.” For the past few years, the network aired this unusual day of sports on 8/8 in honor of the 2004 movie “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” which featured a fictional sports channel called ESPN8: The Ocho. The line-up includes World Hamburger Eating Championship, professional arm wrestling, live cornhole, and of course dodgeball.
