Former Rams defensive end William Hayes, traded Thursday night to the Miami Dolphins, posted a video to his Instagram account on Friday saying he got dealt “for a stapler and a coffee machine.”
Actually, the nine-year veteran was packaged with a seventh-round draft pick in exchange for a sixth-round pick as part of a deal to clear salary cap space. Hayes is due to earn about $5.5 million this season.
Hayes, 31, said he was looking forward to sweet tea, no more traffic and lower rent.
He said he would miss teammates and Rams fans and gave a “shout out” to former Rams Coach Jeff Fisher, former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and owner Stan Kroenke.
