Rams release C Brian Allen after 6 seasons

The Los Angeles Rams aren’t going to wait it out with Brian Allen. The six-year veteran was viewed as a potential cap casualty this offseason and on Wednesday, the Rams made that a reality.

The team announced it has released Allen after six seasons, thanking the veteran center on social media. Allen was a fourth-round pick by the Rams in 2018 and signed a three-year, $18 million extension in 2022.

Allen started 32 games and played 50 since being drafted by the Rams six years ago, though he didn’t play a single game during the entire 2020 season. Injuries plagued his career in Los Angeles, limiting him severely in 2019, 2022 and 2023.

Allen was set to have a cap hit of $8.05 million this year but releasing him will save the Rams $4.9 million, giving them a dead cap charge of $3.15 million in 2024.
