With the first practice coming on July 29, rookies have been asked to report on July 26 with veterans arriving two days later on the eve of camp opening.
All practices will be held at UC Irvine, with the practice on the 9th a special joint practice between the Rams and their cross-town, uh, friends, the Los Angeles Chargers.

The team has yet to designate which positions will sign autographs on which dates.
It’s a bit of a culture change in allowing the public to attend all practices. Last year, the Rams held six private practices to be able to...they held private practices because...I dunno. Look, it was Jeff Fisher and he did things his way and damn logic or sense, he felt that was appropriate and that’s how it was. Perhaps they were emotionally charged and they didn’t want any intrasquad fights to be public or perhaps they were worried about some components of their playbook becoming public knowledge (though I’d note you don’t have to worry about that kind of stuff if you, yanno, are good at football). In any case, new Head Coach Sean McVay clearly isn’t concerned with public attendance at camp derailing his goals for setting the team up for the 2017 season.
It’s worth noting that the Rams have the first preseason game of their 2017 preseason schedule, against the Dallas Cowboys, is on August 12; the second, against the Oakland* Raiders, is on August 19, two days after the final training camp practice. Also, there will be no intermediary roster cuts this year. Unlike previous years when teams were forced to reduce the 90-man roster to 75 players after a third preseason game and then a 53-man roster between the end of the preseason and Week 1, this year all teams will go directly from the 90-man to a 53-man roster on September 2, per the 2017 NFL Calendar. How that, and the above preseason intrusions, will affect training camp and roster decision timing is to be seen.
So mark down your calendars. Training camp starts in just 37 days.
