THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – The Los Angeles Rams have released running back Todd Gurley.
Gurley, 25, was the Rams' first-round pick out of Georgia in 2015. The Tarboro, North Carolina native started 72 games for the franchise, rushing for 5,404 yards and 58 touchdowns. His 70 total touchdowns rank fourth in team history, while his total rushing yards are fifth-most in team history.
Following the 2017 and 2018 seasons, Gurley earned back-to-back First Team All-Pro recognition from the Associated Press. He also was also named to the Pro Bowl three times during his Rams tenure. In 2019, Gurley's 12 rushing touchdowns moved him into a tie with Marshall Faulk for most career rushing touchdowns in team history.
The departure of Gurley leaves L.A.'s backfield with 26-year-old Malcolm Brown and 2019 third-round pick Darrell Henderson Jr. as its top two running backs. Brown carried the ball 69 times for 255 yards and five touchdowns in 14 games last season, while Henderson added 39 carries for 147 yards in 13 games in his rookie campaign.
