We did it everyone....we survived. The offseason is over!! Today the Rams start training camp with only the rookies in attendance. It's finally time and we here at Turf Show Times could not be more excited for another season of Rams football!!

Rams have all draft picks signed

All 10 of the Rams draft picks will be in training camp today. Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson officially signed their contracts last night. Jenkins' deal is $5 million over 4 years with a #3.1 million signing bonus. The new hasn't come out if that bonus will be over 2 years like Jenkins wanted, or over 4 like the Rams wanted. Details of Johnson's contract haven't been made public as of now.

SB Nation's Power Rankings

The first of many power rankings from the mother ship came out yesterday. All 32 of the site managers voted and the Rams came out in 28th place. It's about all that could have been expected.

Steven Jackson wants to retire as a Ram

The lone bright spot for the Rams since 2007 has been Steven Jackson. He never bitches or complains that the team flat out sucks, or the coaching is inept. He just runs the ball, and he runs hard. Most players of his caliber would be looking to find a way out and join a better team. Not Steven Jackson. His type of loyalty is very rare is sports and shouldn't be overlooked. Hopefully the Rams will pay back Jackson for all he has given the team with little return thus far.

What WRs will make the team?

NFL.com takes a stab at predicting the WR roster when the Rams take the field against Detroit opening day. Obviously Brain Quick and Chris Givens will make the team, but after that, it will be a hell of a battle. We'll have more on this in the coming days, and it will be the most talked about position over the next month. Brace yourselves.
