Today, the St. Louis Rams kick off training camp when rookies, QBs and a few select others report. The long wait is over. Football season is here. There's some news to pass along as well, so let's get right in.
Danario Alexander visits the Rams on Monday. He'll also take a physical, and if everything checks out the Rams might have another wide receiver in the mix this month.
As expected, it's all over but the shootin' for a deal between the Rams and second round pick OT Rodger Saffold. His agents flew to STL last night and the ink will start drying this morning.
Spagnuolo is planning fewer live tackling sessions for camp this year. I wonder about that decision. The Rams defense, for all their faults, were one of the best teams in the league in terms of broken tackles. As far as a lighter camp workload for Steven Jackson, that's a pretty smart idea. Why put excess wear and tear on those tires; he knows how to do his job.
Mark your calendars, 3k and I are hosting a very special episode of Turf Show Radio. It's really more of a conference call, but I'll get into that tonight on the air. Show starts at 6 p.m. Central...call-in info to follow.
