St. Louis Rams LB Brian Kehl has has one interesting offseason

St. Louis Rams linebacker Bryan Kehl has used his downtime during the lockout very productively.

The NFL lockout has made things slow, slow, slow. Normally, the St. Louis Rams and their fans would be getting their first look at the new crop of rookies from the draft with rookie minicamps underway around this time. Not this year. Drama seems to be the only thing that keeps players in the news right now, and the Rams have none of that. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. On more than one occasion we've snarked about head coach Steve Spagnuolo's "four pillars" limiting their free agent spending or draft boards, but it's paying off for the team right now, keeping negative attention away and players' focused through a strange unstructured "offseason."

But some players from the Rams do pop up in the headlines, though not the front pages, for doing some interesting things. The human interest story. 

Linebacker Bryan Kehl, one of several who saw duty on the weakside last year, found his biological father. Kehl, a Salt Lake City native, is the son of Maurice Turner, a former NFL running back drafted by the Vikings in 1983. Anyway, it's a pretty interesting story and you can listen to Kehl tell it to a local Salt Lake City TV news reporter on the golf course.

On the golf course...what a classic local TV news twist on human interest stories. Someday, I'm going to write a book, or maybe start a blog, about awesome local TV news...and local TV commercials. Oh that's gold.
