Rams Rumors: Joe Noteboom Contract Restructured To Clear Cap Space
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams’ roster has undergone significant changes this offseason as the team looks to get under the salary cap. To this point, veterans Bobby Wagner and Leonard Floyd have been released, and Jalen Ramsey was traded to the Miami Dolphins.

More subtractions are likely on the way as the Rams have given Allen Robinson permission to seek a trade. What’s more, there was an earlier report that indicated L.A. would like to move on from Matthew Stafford as well.

However, Rams general manager Les Snead recently called the veteran quarterback a “pillar” of the team and suggested he will be part of the rebuilding phase.

As the Rams look to clear additional salary cap, Joe Noteboom’s contract was reportedly reworked to free up $9 million in space, per ESPN’s Field Yates:

Noteboom started in six games at left tackle for the Rams last year before sustaining a season-ending Achilles injury during a Week 6 matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

Noteboom was considered a potential cap casualty after signing a three-year contract prior to the 2022 season, but now that his deal is reworked, he will likely remain with the team going forward.

According to Spotrac, the Rams now have just over $8 million in cap space, which means they will be compliant with the NFL’s rule of being under the threshold by the start of the new league year on Wednesday.

The $8 million in cap space gives the Rams a little wiggle room for a minor addition if they desire, and at the very least, should be enough to cover all of their future 2023 NFL Draft picks.
