Todd Gurley Demands The Rams Pay Him His Money By June 1st
For yet another time this offseason, Todd Gurley is speaking out about his former team and the money they owe him.
During a podcast appearance with Jimmy Spencer for Uninterrupted on Friday, the Atlanta Falcons running back confirmed he still has not been paid and went on to set a timeline for when he wants the money.
“I don’t know what their reason is. … They know they have to pay me too. Apparently probably just using the COVID thing as an excuse. They probably ain’t go no money to be paying nobody. They’ve got that stadium being built right now. All I know is, come June 1, I better have my money.”
Gurley and linebacker Clay Matthews, who were both released by the Rams on March 19th, have stated publicly that the Rams owe them money that the organization is contractually obligated to pay.
“They’re definitely owed money. That money is guaranteed. We’re going to pay them, Rams general manager Les Snead said on NFL Network last month. There’s some language in the contract of exactly when you pay them, and that’s what we’re adhering by. What I do know is both Clay and Todd earned that money and they’re going to get that money.”
Matthews has since filed a grievance against the Rams for over $2 million in unpaid guarantees.
The 25-year-old Gurley spent five seasons with the Rams, amassing 5,404 rushing yards and 58 rushing touchdowns, plus 218 receptions for 2,090 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns during his career.
