The Los Angeles Rams cut veteran quarterback Nick Foles after being unable to trade him.
"We have been in contact with Nick and his representation throughout the offseason and we feel that this is the best decision for all parties involved," coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement released by the team. "We appreciate the contributions that Nick has made to our organization in his time as a Ram and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors."
Jared Goff was drafted first overall.
Rams also have Case Keenum and Sean Mannion.
Los Angeles paid Foles a $6 million roster bonus in March.
