Rams release suspended LB Dunbar
ST. LOUIS (AP)
The Rams have four rookies on their two-deep roster at linebacker heading into the opener Sunday at home against Arizona. It has first-rounder Alec Ogletree starting and undrafted Darren Bates, Jonathan Stewart and Ray Ray Armstrong listed as backups.
The Rams on Tuesday also signed backup defensive end Eugene Sims to a two-year contract extension. Sims has played 38 games in three seasons with St. Louis, with two starts. He had three sacks and an interception last season.
Sims had been scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.
Dunbar was suspended by the NFL for violating league policy on performance-enhancing substances.
