Here is an email sent to all season ticket holders today. They are trying hard to keep everyone involved.
"Since the final moments of our 2012 season, our organization has been eagerly awaiting this week and the opening of the 2013 training camp as we look to build on the momentum and excitement that Coach Fisher, Les Snead and the youngest team in the NFL created last year. After an offseason focused on scoring more points, chasing down mobile quarterbacks and improving the fan experience, we are excited to welcome you to Rams Park over the course of the coming weeks so you can enjoy your special Season Ticket Holder tent and get an up-close look at a team that is hungry to return winning football to St. Louis.
"During our Season Ticket Holder luncheons in February, we promised you that we would dedicate the offseason to adding "playmakers" to make your team more explosive. To deliver on that promise, we went out and signed Jared Cook, the most athletic tight end available in free agency. We then traded up in the NFL Draft to acquire Tavon Austin, the most exciting offensive player in this year’s draft class. We also placed an emphasis on improving the offensive line and signed four-time Pro Bowler and former number one overall draft pick Jake Long to provide greater protection for Sam and ensure he has more time to throw to his new offensive weapons. We are confident that these additions will lead to a more dynamic offense that can score quicker and in more ways than in years past. On the defensive side of the ball, Coach Fisher and Les added pieces to complement a unit that emerged as one of the league's top defenses last year, tying for the league lead in sacks paced by Chris Long and Robert Quinn. Specifically, the additions of Alec Ogletree and TJ McDonald will continue to improve our defense by providing us with more speed and power at the linebacker and safety positions to combat the mobile quarterbacks in our division and across the league.
"With the first full squad training camp practice tomorrow, we hope you will check out our training camp schedule on stlouisrams.com and come out to Rams Park to see your new and improved team first hand. In addition to the on the field enhancements, we have also focused on a more fan-friendly experience including an interactive playground for kids, a greater selection of all new 2013 Rams gear and more food and drink options than ever before. Perhaps most exciting is a special opportunity for our Season Ticket Holders to sign their children up for a chance to participate in our unique "Rams Rookies" program that allows kids to meet a player after practice, assist in the autograph signing session and then walk with his/her assigned player toward the locker room. Sign-ups for the program will take place at the Rams ticketing tent near the entrance to the practice field with the lucky winners being drawn a half hour prior to the conclusion of practice.
"In addition to training camp, we are also preparing for #RamsFanFest, which will take place at the Edward Jones Dome on Saturday, August 3. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m. for exclusive early access for Season Ticket Holders and 11:30 a.m. for the general public. A separate email will be forthcoming in the next few days from Matt Cady, our director of customer relations and retention, with detailed information on this exciting event that is also free to attend. We hope to see each of you at training camp and #RamsFanFest as the youngest team in the NFL takes the next step in getting back to the top of the NFC West and building a consistent winner.
"With two home prime time games on the schedule this year for the first time in a decade, the NFL has recognized that we are a team on the rise. As we begin the 2013 journey tomorrow, our sole focus will be delivering a product that makes you proud now and for many years to come. We look forward to you being with us every step of the way."
Sincerely, Kevin Demoff Executive Vice President of Football Operations/Chief Operating Officer St. Louis Rams
