“This was a difficult decision based on a lot of factors,” said Rams Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo. “I have a great deal of respect for Pisa and wish him all of the best.”

The St. Louis Rams released linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa, the team announced today.

“This was a difficult decision based on a lot of factors,” said Rams Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo. “I have a great deal of respect for Pisa and wish him all of the best.”

Tinoisamoa, a six-year veteran, led the team with 135 tackles (88 solo) in 2008, after spending part of the 2007 and 2006 seasons on the reserved/injured list.

The Rams selected Tinoisamoa in the second round (43rd overall) of the 2002 Draft. That season, he became the first Rams player to lead the team in tackles as a rookie with 121 tackles (70 solo).
