It was less than a year and a half ago that the Rams extended wide receiver Tavon Austin‘s contract. Now, they might be looking to get out from under it.

Via Alden Gonzalez of, the Rams could be about to cut Austin, since he, you know, doesn’t really do much for them and they can save some money in the process.

If he’s still on the roster on March 16 they owe him a $5 million roster bonus. They can save $3 million in cap space by cutting him now, but there’s a cash savings that’s considerable since he’s under contract through 2021.
