The Rams have a brand new home in Los Angeles — and a rapidly changing roster to go with it.

The team released defensive end Chris Long, linebacker James Laurinaitis and tight end Jared Cookon Friday. The club later confirmed the moves.

“This is the time of year when all NFL teams are faced with difficult decisions regarding their veteran players,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement.

“Chris and James are the epitome of what it means to be a pro in this league and it’s been an honor to coach them both. They’ve been the pillars of our defense for many years and not enough can be said of their love for the game and for their teammates. Beyond the field, they took pride in mentoring the younger players and doing their part to make a real difference in the St. Louis community. We will always be grateful for James and Chris’ unselfish commitment to the Rams and wish them the best moving forward.

EARTH CITY, Mo. — Given a few days off after a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night, a handful of St. Louis Rams took the opportunity to visit wide receiver Stedman Bailey at a Miami-area hospital on Saturday. Earlier in the week, Rams receiver Tavon Austin told ESPN.com that he and some teammates had planned the trip, and the group followed through with a visit Saturday morning. Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson was the first to post a picture of Bailey and his Rams teammates in what is believed to be one of the first public pictures of Bailey since he was shot twice in the head on Nov. 24. The Rams’ official account eventually took Johnson’s Instagram photo and tweeted it out.

The Rams have had internal discussions about bringing Peyton Manning to Los Angeles should he want to play another season, hospital per a league source.

Manning still is under contract to the Broncos for another year, but most around the league do not expect him to return to Denver next season, if he returns at all.

Manning still must decide whether he wants to play after this season, and the Rams still are formulating their quarterback plans. But they are monitoring the Manning situation, per a source, which is a sign that the Broncos quarterback could have options next season.

It also sets up the possibility — even if it is remote — that Manning could finish his career in Southern California, just as former Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas did with the San Diego Chargers in 1973 and former New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath did with the Los Angeles Rams in 1977.
