Yesterday, LA Rams HC Jeff Fisher sent out a letter to the more than 56,000 fans who placed a deposit for season tickets. Here's the full text:
Dear (Depositor's Name)
We are tremendously proud to be writing our first letter to the great Los Angeles Rams fans who have placed a season ticket deposit. There is a significant amount of work to be done in the next few months as we prepare to kickoff this fall at the Coliseum, but we wanted to take a moment from our offseason preparations to both thank you for your deposit and give you a preview of what the Los Angeles Rams offseason will look like.
We will begin our offseason training on April 18, which will be the first time our team assembles as the Los Angeles Rams. We are still in the process of finalizing where our offseason workouts will take place, but we fully expect this will be the beginning of a season that sees us compete for the NFC West title. Last year, we had a NFC West division-best 4-2 record and are looking to build on that as we head into the 2016 season. Training Camp will take place in late July in the greater Southern California region and will be free and open to the public. Once the location and dates are finalized, we will be sure to let you know.
We could not be more excited about the future prospects for our Rams moving forward. Less than two weeks ago, Todd Gurley was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, which follows Aaron Donald's NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award from 2014. In addition to having the reigning back-to-back Rookies of the Year, Tavon Austin is looking to build off his breakout season, which saw him gain nearly 1,200 yards and score 10 touchdowns. Collectively, we are excited to be bringing one of the NFL's fiercest defenses and the NFL's youngest team - a team that we built for long-term success - to Los Angeles.
Beginning this week, myself and our GM Les Snead , along with our coaches, scouts and football operations staff, will begin reviewing our free agency plan for March and preparing for the NFL Combine, which begins on February 23 in Indianapolis. After the Combine, we will be working to have a successful free agency period and then begin draft meetings in early April. We are the only NFL team to have three selections in the first 50 picks and four selections in the first 95 picks, so this draft will be an exciting one for Los Angeles Rams fans.
On a personal note, I could not be more excited to be returning as the head coach of the Rams to the city where I was raised. From playing high school football in the valley to playing college football at USC, this is a wonderful opportunity for me and I can't wait to lead our team out of the tunnel at the Coliseum. I look forward to seeing you at our off-season events and at the Coliseum this fall. We will make you proud of your Rams!
