ESPN first reported the news.
Gurley is slated to make $6 million on Atlanta's one-year deal. Including the $7.5 million bonus owed to him by the Rams, with $2.5 million offset, Gurley will make $11 million in 2020, a source told Rapoport.
The deal is pending a physical, which could be difficult due to the current restrictions on player medical checks due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Rams cut Gurley, who played for the University of Georgia, Thursday before an additional $10.5 million on his contract was set to become guaranteed.
The questions about his knee led the Rams to move on, eating more than $20 million in dead money. L.A. still owes Gurley a $7.55 million roster bonus for this season. A shade over $2.5 million of that deal is subject to offsets, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
A one-year deal for Gurley makes sense, given the questions about his knee.
It all depends on how Gurley looks in 2020. When right, the 25-year-old has power and vision to blast through holes and take it the distance. He's an upgrade in passing situations out of the backfield. Last year, however, Gurley never looked right, earning just 3.8 yards per carry on 223 totes.
