Later in the afternoon, word came that the team would release defensive back Ron Bartell and defensive end James Hall as well. According to the Post-Dispatch, these moves will save an additional $9.25 million.

Releasing Bartell frees up $6.25 million in cap space; releasing Hall frees up $3 million.

SB Nation Rams blog Turf Show Times says the team has around $30 million in cap space following these moves, which frees the organization up to potentially make some significant free agent acquisitions.
