Feels good, don’t it? Football back? Expectations surging? Los Angeles Rams in the air? Nice just to get the first day of training camp in the books even if it was just a speedthrough without any contact or pads or anything.

Things should start to turn up on Sunday:


We went in with two on the Physically Unable to Perform list and two on the Non-Football Injury (NFI) list. It didn’t sound like anything went awry today in shorts, but we did learn that S Lamarcus Joyner came off the NFI. We’ve still got a whole two weeks before the first preseason game, so there’s no rush to anything right now.


RB Just Todd Gurley doin shorts:

Even with the two-game suspension to start the year, RG Jamon Brown was in with the starting line today:

I’d expect that to be the case for the majority of camp and the preseason, but I’d think we’ll get at least some work for the RG2 to prep for Weeks 1 and 2 at least to a small degree.

And QB Jared Goff continues to say the right things:

The Rams also brought in one of college football’s more electric stars in Arizona QB Khalil Tate

Tate, who was born in Inglewood, went to high school just south in Gardena at Junípero Serra High School, the powerhouse program that Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee, Washington WR Paul Richardson, Tennessee Titans CB Adoree’ Jackson and Rams WR Robert Woods attended.

If you’re trying to tie in Tate to the Rams, I’d slow your roll. Tate’s an absolutely electric college talent as a dual-threat QB at Zona, but his passing skills just aren’t NFL level. Perhaps a position switch could see him stretch out an NFL career, but let’s just take this for what it is. A local kid who is having a spectacular career stopping by Rams camp.

And here was a short interview with WR Brandin Cooks:



But highlights!

And look at these two goobers:

This was pretty cool though — DL Michael Brockers working with DL Tanzel Smart and rookie DE John Franklin-Myers:

Not the most momentous day, but that should kinda be the aim when you’re in shorts and just getting going. It was Day 1. It was festive. A bit of a celebration. A kind of spring equinox rebirth celebration but less religious (slightly).

Training camp is back!
