The Rams are set to have a few joint practices this summer with the Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys, or at least, that’s what we were told recently by Sean McVay. But Mike McCarthy, the head coach of the Cowboys, wouldn’t commit to said practices.
Last week, McVay confirmed that LA is planning joint practices with Vegas and Dallas. This could allow the Rams to work on some things against real NFL competition, an opportunity that no teams had in 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic shutdown preseason games and complicated all matters of practicing.

However, McCarthy said he was “hesitant” to commit to the practices with the Rams, while also noting that it is what the Cowboys plan to do. The practice would be only one day and it would take place in Oxnard, California.
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said he is “hesitant” to say outright the team to hold joint practice with Rams. “I wish we could put a stamp on it and say it was official.” But that’s the plan. “That’s what we are preparing to do.” One practice day vs. Rams in Oxnard, CA.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) June 3, 2021
At least if the Rams do practice against the Raiders in California, they won’t have to pay $100 for parking.
Also, here’s a selfie that a fan took with McVay and I just want to say that he’s got a very kind smile.
