The Los Angeles Rams shocked the league last season when they cut running back Todd Gurley just two years after giving him a monster extension. Gurley’s release was a prime example of the NFL’s ruthless nature. When a player is no longer viewed as an asset, a team will do whatever is necessary to move on from them, regardless of salary.

Last week, the Rams made another surprise move when they shipped former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Matthew Stafford. Goff was given a four-year, $134 million extension prior to the 2019 season and just like that, Los Angeles has moved on to someone else.

Gurley joined Solomon Wilcots on SiriusXM Radio to discuss the Rams’ decision to move on from Goff despite his big contract.

“A lot of teams would just keep a guy there just because they owe him so much money, but not with them, man,” said Gurley. “They want to win and they want to win now. So you’ve kind of got to look at it from both sides and kind of respect it, you know, respect the business aspect of it. But, you know, they want to win now and — no one’s safe.”
