Former Los Angeles Rams linebacker Clay Matthews reportedly filed a grievance against the team over unpaid guaranteed money.
Matthews is claiming the Rams owe him $2 million in guarantees and he is submitting a case to the NFL Players Association which will, in turn, file the grievance on his behalf, ESPN reported Wednesday.
Matthews signed a two-year, $9.25 million deal prior to the start of the 2019 season.
He was released in March, allowing the Rams to clear $3.75 million in cap space.
The linebacker is still a free agent and his $2 million offsets when he signs with a new team, but he believes he is owed the money now, ESPN reported.
A source told the website the team could argue the contract allows the team to defer payments for tax purposes.
