THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Running back Todd Gurley was a key component to the Rams' offense during his five seasons with the club. General manager Les Snead and head coach Sean McVay released the following statements thanking Gurley for his contributions following his release earlier this afternoon.
"I would like to thank Todd for his many contributions to the Rams, on and off the field, since I have been here," McVay said. "He has meant a lot to my growth as a coach and leader and he will always be remembered as one of the all-time great Rams. I wish him nothing but the best."
"When we drafted Todd in 2015, we knew he was going to be a one-of-a-kind talent that would create special moments on the football field for us," Snead said. "Todd did this by becoming one of the greatest competitors in this league, but more than that, he served as a great teammate to his fellow players and ambassador for our organization, and those traits speak volumes to who he is as a human being."
