Rams Release Veteran SS Quintin Mikell
In what surely wasn’t an easy decision, the Rams have decided to release veteran safety Quintin Mikell.
Mikell, who signed with the Rams as a free agent in 2011, played well last season as a box safety. He finished with 114 tackles, forced four fumbles, and recorded three sacks.
But his base salary was scheduled to jump to $6 million this season from $1 million in 2012, and he was scheduled to count $9 million against the salary cap this season.
Releasing Mikell, who turns 33 in September, saves the Rams $3 million against the cap.
