Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E Sports) – The Los Angeles Rams cut wide receiver Deon Long for violating team rules after he brought a woman into his training camp dorm.
Coach Jeff Fisher informed Long of the decision in Tuesday's episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks”.
"What part of the rules, what part of 'no female guests in the room,' did you not understand?" Fisher asked Long in their meeting, which was shown on the television show.
Long explained that his visitor was there before curfew and he didn't intend to have her stay. But after hearing Long's explanation, Fisher tells him he's being released.
"Sorry, but this is our world, man," Fisher says. "We have rules and we have to abide by them. Not the first time I've done this for this particular violation, but I thought I made myself really clear."
After his decision, Fisher then informed the team that Long was cut.
The Philadelphia Eagles signed Long Friday. The 25-year-old spent time with the Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins last season but never played.
Long played for four different college programs, finishing up with two years at Maryland. He was undrafted last year.
