Rookie Micah Kiser Already Benefiting from Rams’ Financial Lessons | Rams Wire

The financial management training is one thing I’m glad the Rams kept around from the Jeff Fisher era.

Former Rams WR Nelson Spruce Felt a Breakout Coming in L.A. | Rams Wire

I was so hyped for Nelson Spruce in 2016. I was really disappointed when he got injured in the preseason, and even more so that he never healed enough to see a snap in the regular season.
