Waived with a non-football injury designation yesterday, Jeff Fisher said he'd like to have Bailey back in a coaching role.
LA Times' Gary Klein and Lindsey Thiry talk about UDFA WR Nelson Spruce looking sharp, QB Jared Goff being brought along slowly, RB Todd Gurley being 10 lbs lighter than his 2015 playing weight, WR Stedman Bailey's potential role and more.
The pair update us (via Facebook live) on TE Lance Kendricks' expectations under OC Rob Boras (his former TE coach), the uncertainty of the WR/TE depth chart, Pharoh Cooper's impressive start, and more.
Kept hearing Pharoh Cooper's name come up when talking to WR/TE about who has stood out. Seems like he could contribute very early on.— Ryan Kartje (@Ryan_Kartje) June 9, 2016
The second year WR has been "catching everything" during OTA's, and is making sure the Rams don't forget him. Also, some LA beach/weather talk.
Some live-action shots of June 8 OTA's from LA Daily news. Also, Daily News' Vinny Bonsignore describes what "uncomfortable" meant for Jared Goff:
Bit of an uneven day for Jared Goff -or as #Rams O-coordinator Rob Boras described it: "uncomfortable" 1/2— Vincent Bonsignore (@DailyNewsVinny) June 8, 2016
The "uncomfortable" Boras talks about for Goff/rookie WR's is having to think through plays/responsibilities rather than just "playing" 1/2— Vincent Bonsignore (@DailyNewsVinny) June 8, 2016

Fisher breaks down Day 5 of OTA's. More detail on the Stedman Bailey decision. On Tavon Austin: "The reason we drafted him, number one, is we didn't want to have to defend him."
Nick Wagoner outlines who could emerge for the Rams as veteran leaders on offense and defense. Remember: this is one of the NFL's youngest teams and it just got younger with the departures of Long, Laurinaitis and Cook.
After being sidelined by a back injury in 2015, Quinn looks to get back in the saddle as one of the most dominating pass rushers in the NFL. Gurley looks to build on his strong rookie campaign and will be the centerpiece of the Rams' offense.
The Rams' CB's must clean up their tackling to improve their ranking.
Rams also broke the top 10 in PFF's special teams ranking:
ESPN's John Clayton doesn't think so. The Rams would be smart to bring Goff along slowly, and have Keenum keep the seat warm.
Have a good day, Ramsnation!
