Former Los Angeles Rams players Todd Gurley and Clay Matthews said on Twitter that the Rams were late in delivering paychecks.

“@RamsNFL past due. Send me money as soon as possible, “Gurley wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.

Matthews retweeted Gurley, adding, “You and me, TG! Better be interested in that too. “

The Rams released Gurley and Matthews on March 19.

Gurley signed a $ 5.5 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons on Monday. Matthews remains an unrestricted free agent.

The Rams did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The club released Gurley less than two years after signing him for a $ 60 million extension over four years, including $ 45 million in guarantees. They designated his release as after June 1, which allows the team to spread the caps on dead money of $ 11.75 million over two seasons. The Rams will also have $ 5.5 million in capitalization savings on June 2.

Los Angeles saved $ 3.75 million in salary caps by cutting Matthews.

Following their decision to remove Gurley, the Rams owed him a bonus of $ 7.55 million. Because of Gurley’s compensatory language, the team doesn’t have to pay him $ 2.5 million of what he is owed.

Matthews was to receive a $ 2 million fully guaranteed bonus, but his contract also includes $ 2 million in compensatory language.

This is not the first time that Gurley has publicly commented on the money the Rams owe him. Late last month, Gurley commented, “@Rams thanks for checking out today” on an NFL Instagram post that featured him wearing a Falcons uniform.
