Stocked with talent along their defensive line, the St. Louis Rams have parted ways with Kendall Langford.

The Rams announced on Thursday that the defensive tackle has been released, saving the team $6 million in cap space.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported in October that teams were "making calls" on Langford prior to the trade deadline. Now the rest of the league has a chance to swoop up the versatile veteran who lost his starting job this autumn to Defensive Rookie of the Year Aaron Donald.

Langford ranked 36th among players at his position, per Pro Football Focus, tied with fellow Rams interior defender Michael Brockers and a whopping 35 spots below the whirlwind Donald.

At 29, Langford is bound to attract suitors. Despite having just one sack last season, the 6-foot-6, 313-pounder piled up seven total takedowns over the previous two campaigns and remains disruptive up front. Having never missed a game through seven seasons, Langford will find a new home.
