Todd Gurley and Clay Matthews say they are still waiting for the Rams’ paychecks


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.
