Rams to release Josh Brown
Brown, who turns 33 on Sunday, is entering the final year of a five-year, $14.2 million deal. He's a career 81 percent kicker but was 21 for 28 on field goals last season, with five misses inside the 50 and one inside the 40.
The Rams selected Greg Zuerlein of Missouri Western, who set an NCAA Division II record with 21 consecutive field goals last season and missed once in 24 attempts overall.
