Gurley was drafted by the Rams with the 10th overall pick in 2015. He made three Pro Bowls with the team (in 2015, 2017 and 2018), but he had a down season in 2019 while dealing with nagging knee injuries. He had just signed a 4-year, $60-million contract with the Rams in 2018, making him the highest paid running back in the NFL (at the time).
As for the Falcons, they were in need of a running back after releasing their longtime starter, Devonta Freeman, earlier in the week.
