According to reports, the St. Louis Rams will release safety Quintin Mikell in an effort to cut costs.
The move, as first reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, will save the Rams nearly $3 million in cap space, something the team desperately needs to do.
Mikell is coming off a strong year in which he finished fourth on the team in tackles with 93 and forced four fumbles. During his two-year stint in St. Louis, Mikell started all 32 games, solidifying the safety position for one of the most improved units over that time.
A ten-year veteran, Mikell will turn 33 this season.
