Rams cut Jake Long, Scott Wells

The St. Louis Rams cut veteran offensive tackle Jake Long and center Scott Wells. By doing so, the Rams saved $12 million against the salary cap. "Jake and Scott brought experience and professionalism to our program, and we appreciate their commitment and hard work," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. "Both of them overcame injury difficulties and provided leadership for our younger players. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for both of them." Long was signed to a four-year contract in 2013, but tore his anterior cruciate ligament twice since joining the team. By March 14, $4 million of his salary for next season would have been guaranteed. Greg Robinson is the Rams' left tackle now. Wells' release saves the Rams $4 million. He was signed to a four-year, $24 million contract in 2012. Wells was due a $1 million roster bonus on Thursday.
