Joe Noteboom - 2024 Cap Hit: $20 Million

The Rams already released one veteran offensive lineman in Brian Allen last week and Joe Noteboom could be next in line. The six-year veteran has lost his starting job and snaps to Alaric Jackson, who performed well in his stead.

Dealing with injuries, the former third-round pick only played in 20 games over the last two seasons and only 59% of snaps when he was available in 2023.

On top of it all, he carries a cap hit of $20 million for 2024, the fourth-largest number on the team. If the Rams were to make Noteboom a post-June 1 cut, they could save $15 million, which they could use on more pressing needs.

Noteboom would certainly be a useful backup as a swing tackle. He played as left tackle, right tackle, and right guard in his eight starts last season.

There is a chance the sides could agree to restructure the deal but Noteboom would have to agree to a significant pay cut for next season. The only scenario in which Noteboom comes back with his current salary is if the Rams are priced out of re-signing pending free agent Alaric Jackson.

Otherwise, Noteboom is one of the likeliest players to not return for next season.

Despite the surprise 2023 season, the Rams are still considered a long shot (+3000) to win the Super Bowl LIX, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. They could certainly help their odds by nailing these offseason moves.
