The conclusion of Todd Gurley's tenure with the Los Angeles Rams didn't go as planned and the All-Pro running back is still waiting on the money that is owed to him. In response to holdup, Gurley is refusing to speak to his former teammates until he gets paid.
“‘I still ain’t got my money, so it’s really, forget the Rams right now. I don’t even care about them,' he said on Uninterrupted. ‘I told my ex-teammates that they can’t even text me or call me until I get my money. As soon as I get my money, then I’ll be cool with everybody else.'”
Earlier this offseason, the Rams released Gurley due to their salary cap situation. Even though they released him, Los Angeles still owed Gurley $7.55 million. However, since he signed with the Atlanta Falcons, that number was lowered to $5 million.
Since being let go by the Rams, Gurley has been very adamant about getting his money from his former team. Besides Gurley, Los Angeles has also failed to pay Clay Matthews the money owed to him following his release.
Though, unlike Gurley, Matthews actually filed a grievance against the Rams this offseason. The veteran edge rusher claims that Los Angeles has failed to pay him the money that was guaranteed to him.
Despite the disputes with Gurley and Matthews, Rams general manager Les Snead has assured that both will get the money owed to them in due time. But until that happens, don't expect to see Gurley speaking with any of his former teammates.
